HubSpot ODBC Driver

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

Access HubSpot like you would a database - read, write, and update Contacts, Deals, Emails, Companies, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



The CData ODBC driver for HubSpot enables you to create PHP applications with connectivity to HubSpot data. Leverage the native support for ODBC in PHP.

Drop the CData ODBC Driver for HubSpot into your LAMP or WAMP stack to build HubSpot-connected Web applications. This article shows how to use PHP's ODBC built-in functions to connect to HubSpot data, execute queries, and output the results.

Configure a DSN

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.

HubSpot uses the OAuth authentication standard. You can use the embedded OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL or you can obtain your own by registering an app.

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

Establish a Connection

Open the connection to HubSpot by calling the odbc_connect or odbc_pconnect methods. To close connections, use odbc_close or odbc_close_all.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC HubSpot Source","user","password");

Connections opened with odbc_connect are closed when the script ends. Connections opened with the odbc_pconnect method are still open after the script ends. This enables other scripts to share that connection when they connect with the same credentials. By sharing connections among your scripts, you can save system resources, and queries execute faster.

$conn = odbc_pconnect("CData ODBC HubSpot Source","user","password"); ... odbc_close($conn); //persistent connection must be closed explicitly

Create Prepared Statements

Create prepared statements and parameterized queries with the odbc_prepare function.

$query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Prospects WHERE Region = ?");

Execute Queries

Execute prepared statements with odbc_execute.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC HubSpot Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Prospects WHERE Region = ?"); $success = odbc_execute($query, array('ONTARIO'));

Execute nonparameterized queries with odbc_exec.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC HubSpot Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT Slug, PageViews FROM Prospects");

Process Results

Access a row in the result set as an array with the odbc_fetch_array function.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC HubSpot data Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT Slug, PageViews FROM Prospects"); while($row = odbc_fetch_array($query)){ echo $row["Slug"] . "\n"; }

Display the result set in an HTML table with the odbc_result_all function.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC HubSpot data Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Prospects WHERE Region = ?"); $success = odbc_execute($query, array('ONTARIO')); if($success) odbc_result_all($query);

More Example Queries

You will find complete information on the driver's supported SQL in the help documentation. The code examples above are HubSpot-specific adaptations of the PHP community documentation for all ODBC functions.
