Facebook Ads ODBC Driver

The Facebook Ads ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with live data from Facebook Ads, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

Access Facebook Ads data like you would a database - read, write, and update Facebook Ads Comments, Groups, Pages, Insights, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Facebook Ads data as a data source.

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

Integrate Facebook Ads 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.

Most tables require user authentication as well as application authentication. Facebook uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate to Facebook, you can use the embedded OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL or you can obtain your own by registering an app with Facebook.

See the Getting Started chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

You can then follow the steps below to register Facebook Ads 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 Facebook Ads data. Facebook Ads entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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