Natively Connect to Microsoft OneDrive Data in PHP

The CData ODBC driver for Microsoft OneDrive enables you to create PHP applications with connectivity to Microsoft OneDrive data. Leverage the native support for ODBC in PHP.

Drop the CData ODBC Driver for Microsoft OneDrive into your LAMP or WAMP stack to build Microsoft OneDrive-connected Web applications. This article shows how to use PHP's ODBC built-in functions to connect to Microsoft OneDrive data, execute queries, and output the results.

Configure a DSN

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.

OneDrive uses the OAuth authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to create an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the OAuth section of the Help documentation for an authentication guide.

Establish a Connection

Open the connection to Microsoft OneDrive by calling the odbc_connect or odbc_pconnect methods. To close connections, use odbc_close or odbc_close_all.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC OneDrive Source","user","password");

Connections opened with odbc_connect are closed when the script ends. Connections opened with the odbc_pconnect method are still open after the script ends. This enables other scripts to share that connection when they connect with the same credentials. By sharing connections among your scripts, you can save system resources, and queries execute faster.

$conn = odbc_pconnect("CData ODBC OneDrive Source","user","password"); ... odbc_close($conn); //persistent connection must be closed explicitly

Create Prepared Statements

Create prepared statements and parameterized queries with the odbc_prepare function.

$query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Files WHERE Id = ?");

Execute Queries

Execute prepared statements with odbc_execute.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC OneDrive Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Files WHERE Id = ?"); $success = odbc_execute($query, array('Jq74mCczmFXk1tC10GB'));

Execute nonparameterized queries with odbc_exec.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC OneDrive Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT Id, Name FROM Files WHERE Id = 'Jq74mCczmFXk1tC10GB'");

Process Results

Access a row in the result set as an array with the odbc_fetch_array function.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Microsoft OneDrive data Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT Id, Name FROM Files WHERE Id = 'Jq74mCczmFXk1tC10GB'"); while($row = odbc_fetch_array($query)){ echo $row["Id"] . "\n"; }

Display the result set in an HTML table with the odbc_result_all function.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Microsoft OneDrive data Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Files WHERE Id = ?"); $success = odbc_execute($query, array('Jq74mCczmFXk1tC10GB')); if($success) odbc_result_all($query);

More Example Queries

You will find complete information on the driver's supported SQL in the help documentation. The code examples above are Microsoft OneDrive-specific adaptations of the PHP community documentation for all ODBC functions.
