GitHub Icon GitHub ODBC Driver

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

Access GitHub data like you would a database - read, write, and update GitHub Repositories, Projects, Labels, Issues, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Connect to GitHub Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure GitHub data as a data source.

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

Integrate GitHub 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.

GitHub uses the OAuth 2 authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to create an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the Getting Started chapter of the CData help documentation for an authentication guide.

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

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