Connect to live data from JotForm with the API Driver

Connect to JotForm

Connect to JotForm Data in DBArtisan

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

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

Integrate JotForm 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.

Start by setting the Profile connection property to the location of the JotForm Profile on disk (e.g. C:\profiles\JotForm.apip). Next, set the ProfileSettings connection property to the connection string for JotForm (see below).

JotForm API Profile Settings

You will need to find your JotForm API Key in order to authenticate. To obtain an API Key, go to 'My Account' > 'API Section' > 'Create a New API Key'. Once you've created your new API Key, you can set it in the ProfileSettings connection property.

Custom Enterprise API Domains

Enterprise customers of JotForm are given custom API domains to connect to, rather than the default '' domain. If you are an enterprise JotForm customer, then set Domain to you custom API hostname, such as '' or '', inside the ProfileSettings connection property. Conversely, if you do not have a custom domain and still need to connect to '', then leave Domain undefined and set only APIKey.

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

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