Connect to Office 365 Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Office 365 data as a data source.

The CData ODBC Driver for Office 365 seamlessly integrates Office 365 data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Office 365 data as a database. This article shows how to create an data source for Office 365 in DBArtisan and execute queries. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Office 365 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.

Office 365 uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate requests, you will need to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and OAuthCallbackURL by registering an app with Office 365. See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

You can then follow the steps below to register Office 365 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 Office 365 data. Office 365 entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Office 365 data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Office 365 API.
