MariaDB Icon MariaDB ODBC Driver

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

Access MariaDB databases from virtually anywhere through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

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

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

Integrate MariaDB 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.

The Server and Port properties must be set to a MariaDB server. If IntegratedSecurity is set to false, then User and Password must be set to valid user credentials. Optionally, Database can be set to connect to a specific database. If not set, the tables from all databases are reported.

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

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