How to pipe EventBrite Data to CSV in PowerShell

Use standard PowerShell cmdlets to access EventBrite tables.

The CData Cmdlets Module for EventBrite is a standard PowerShell module offering straightforward integration with EventBrite. Below, you will find examples of using our API Cmdlets with native PowerShell cmdlets.

Creating a Connection to Your EventBrite Data

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.

$conn = Connect-API  -Profile "$Profile" -ProfileSettings "$ProfileSettings"

Selecting Data

Follow the steps below to retrieve data from the Events table and pipe the result into to a CSV file:

Select-API -Connection $conn -Table Events | Select -Property * -ExcludeProperty Connection,Table,Columns | Export-Csv -Path c:\myEventsData.csv -NoTypeInformation

You will notice that we piped the results from Select-API into a Select-Object cmdlet and excluded some properties before piping them into an Export-Csv cmdlet. We do this because the CData Cmdlets append Connection, Table, and Columns information onto each "row" in the result set, and we do not necessarily want that information in our CSV file.

The Connection, Table, and Columns are appended to the results in order to facilitate piping results from one of the CData Cmdlets directly into another one.
