Query Microsoft Teams Data as a MySQL Database in Node.js

Execute MySQL queries against Microsoft Teams data from Node.js.

You can use the CData Cloud Hub to query Microsoft Teams data through a MySQL interface. Follow the procedure below to create a virtual database for Microsoft Teams in the Cloud Hub and start querying using Node.js.

The CData Cloud Hub provides a pure MySQL, cloud-to-cloud interface for Microsoft Teams, allowing you to easily query live Microsoft Teams data in Node.js — without replicating the data to a natively supported database. As you query data in Node.js, the CData Cloud Hub pushes all supported SQL operations (filters, JOINs, etc) directly to Microsoft Teams, leveraging server-side processing to quickly return Microsoft Teams data.

Create a Virtual MySQL Database for Microsoft Teams Data

CData Cloud Hub uses a straightforward, point-and-click interface to connect to data sources and generate APIs.

  1. Login to Cloud Hub and click Databases.
  2. Select "Microsoft Teams" from Available Data Sources.
  3. Microsoft Teams uses OAuth to authenticate. Click Test Database to authenticate with Microsoft Teams.
  4. Click Privileges -> Add and add the new user (or an existing user) with the appropriate permissions.

With the virtual database created, you are ready to connect to Microsoft Teams data from any MySQL client.

Query Microsoft Teams from Node.js

The following example shows how to define a connection and execute queries to Microsoft Teams with the MySQL module. You will need the following information:

  • Host name, or address, and port: The address of your instance of the Cloud Hub (myinstance.cdatacloud.net) and the port (3306)
  • Username and password: The username and password of a user you authorized on the Cloud Hub
  • Database name: The database you configured for Microsoft Teams (msteamsdb)

Connect to Microsoft Teams data and start executing queries with the code below:

var mysql      = require('mysql');
var fs         = require('fs');
var connection = mysql.createConnection({
  host     : 'myinstance.cdatacloud.net',
  database : 'msteamsdb',
  port	   : '3306',
  user     : 'admin',
  password : 'password',
  ssl      : {
    ca : fs.readFileSync('C:/certs/myCA.pem')
  }
});
connection.connect();
connection.query('SELECT * FROM Teams', function(err, rows, fields) {
  if (err) throw err;
  console.log(rows);
});

connection.end();
