Microsoft Teams Icon Microsoft Teams ODBC Driver

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

Access Microsoft Teams data like you would a database - read, write, and update Microsoft Teams Groups, Teams, Channels, Messages, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Microsoft Teams data as a data source.

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

Integrate Microsoft Teams 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.

You can connect to MS Teams using the embedded OAuth connectivity. When you connect, the MS Teams OAuth endpoint opens in your browser. Log in and grant permissions to complete the OAuth process. See the OAuth section in the online Help documentation for more information on other OAuth authentication flows.

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

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