LinkedIn Ads ODBC Driver

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

Access LinkedIn Ads data like you would a database - read, write, and update LinkedIn Ads Analytics, Campaings, Conversion, Forms, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure LinkedIn Ads data as a data source.

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

Integrate LinkedIn Ads 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.

LinkedIn Ads uses the OAuth authentication standard. OAuth requires the authenticating user to interact with LinkedIn using the browser. See the OAuth section in the Help documentation for a guide.

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

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