Connect to Amazon DynamoDB Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Amazon DynamoDB data as a data source.

The CData ODBC Driver for Amazon DynamoDB seamlessly integrates Amazon DynamoDB data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Amazon DynamoDB data as a database. This article shows how to create an data source for Amazon DynamoDB in DBArtisan and execute queries. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Amazon DynamoDB Data into DBArtisan Projects

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

The connection to Amazon DynamoDB is made using your AccessKey, SecretKey, and optionally your Domain and Region. Your AccessKey and SecretKey can be obtained on the security credentials page for your Amazon Web Services account. Your Region will be displayed in the upper left-hand corner when you are logged into DynamoDB.

You can then follow the steps below to register Amazon DynamoDB data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. Finish the wizard to connect to Amazon DynamoDB data. Amazon DynamoDB entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Amazon DynamoDB data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Amazon DynamoDB API.
