Manage MailChimp Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for MailChimp.

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

Integrate MailChimp Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register MailChimp data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic JDBC.
  3. Click Manage.
  4. In the resulting dialog, click New. Enter a name for the driver and click Add. In the resulting dialog, navigate to the driver JAR. The driver JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. In the Connection URL box, enter credentials and other required connection properties in the JDBC URL.

    You can set the APIKey to the key you generate in your account settings, or, instead of providing your APIKey, you can use the OAuth standard to authenticate the application. OAuth can be used to enable other users to access their own data. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL by registering an app with MailChimp.

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

    Built-in Connection String Designer

    For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the MailChimp JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.mailchimp.jar

    Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:mailchimp:APIKey=myAPIKey;
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to MailChimp data. MailChimp entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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