Query EventBrite Data in MySQL Workbench

Create a virtual MySQL database for EventBrite data in CData Connect (or Connect Server) and work with live EventBrite data in MySQL Workbench.

MySQL Workbench allows users to administer MySQL environments and gain better visibility into databases. When paired with CData Connect (on-premise or Connect Server), you get live access to EventBrite data as if it were a MySQL database. This article shows how to create a virtual database for EventBrite in Connect and work with live EventBrite data in MySQL Workbench.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for EventBrite Data

CData Connect uses a straightforward, point-and-click interface to connect to data sources and generate APIs.

  1. Login to Connect and click Connections.
  2. Select "EventBrite" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Enter the necessary authentication properties to connect to EventBrite.

    Start by setting the Profile connection property to the location of the EventBrite Profile on disk (e.g. C:\profiles\EventBrite.apip). Next, set the ProfileSettings connection property to the connection string for EventBrite (see below).

    EventBrite API Profile Settings

    To use authenticate to EventBrite, you can find your Personal Token in the API Keys page of your EventBrite Account. Set the APIKey to your personal token in the ProfileSettings connection property.

  4. Click Save Changes
  5. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

With the virtual database created, you are ready to connect to EventBrite from MySQL Workbench.
