Connect to Google Directory Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Google Directory data as a data source.

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

Integrate Google Directory 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.

Google uses the OAuth authentication standard. You can authorize the data provider to access Google Spreadsheets as an individual user or with a Google Apps Domain service account. See the Getting Started section of the data provider help documentation for an authentication guide.

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

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