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.



This article demonstrates how to use the CData ODBC Driver for HubSpot to connect to HubSpot data and execute queries in PowerBuilder.

The CData ODBC Driver for HubSpot can be used from any platform or development technology that supports ODBC, including PowerBuilder. This article shows how to connect to HubSpot data and execute queries from the Database Painter and controls such as the DataWindow.

Connect to HubSpot as an ODBC Data Source

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.

Create a Profile for the ODBC Driver for HubSpot

Follow the steps below to use the Database Painter tool to create a database profile based on an ODBC DSN (data source name) for HubSpot. In the Database Painter, you can use wizards and the UI to work with HubSpot data.

  1. In PowerBuilder, click Tools -> Database Painter.
  2. In the Objects window in the Database Painter, right-click the ODBC node and click New Profile.
  3. On the Connection tab, enter a name for the profile and select the HubSpot DSN in the Data Source menu.
  4. To view and modify a table, right-click a table and then click Edit Data -> Grid.

Using HubSpot Data with PowerBuilder Controls

You can use standard PowerBuilder objects to connect to ODBC data sources and execute queries. The following example shows how to retrieve HubSpot data into a DataWindow. You can add the following code to the open method:

SQLCA.DBMS = "ODBC" SQLCA.DBParm = "ConnectString='DSN=CData HubSpot Source'" CONNECT USING SQLCA; dw_prospects.SetTransObject(SQLCA); dw_prospects.Retrieve();
