Pinterest ODBC Driver

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

Access Pinterest data like you would a database - read, write, and update Pinterest Boards, Followers, Pins, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

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

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

Integrate Pinterest 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.

Pinterest authentication is based on the standard OAuth flow. To authenticate, you must initially create an app via the Pinterest developer platform where you can obtain an OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL.

Set InitiateOAuth to GETANDREFRESH and set OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL based on the property values for the app you created.

See the Help documentation for other OAuth authentication flows.

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

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