Pipedrive Data Cmdlets

An easy-to-use set of PowerShell Cmdlets offering real-time access to Pipedrive. The Cmdlets allow users to easily read, write, update, and delete live data - just like working with SQL server.

Write a simple PowerShell script to replicate Pipedrive data to a MySQL database.

The CData Cmdlets for Pipedrive offer live access to Pipedrive data from within PowerShell. Using PowerShell scripts, you can easily automate regular tasks like data replication. This article will walk through using the CData Cmdlets for Pipedrive and the CData Cmdlets for MySQL in PowerShell to replicate Pipedrive data to a MySQL database.

After obtaining the needed connection properties, accessing Pipedrive data in PowerShell and preparing for replication consists of four basic steps.

Collecting Pipedrive Data

  1. Install the module:

    Install-Module PipedriveCmdlets
  2. Connect to Pipedrive:

    $pipedrive = Connect-Pipedrive -AuthScheme $AuthScheme -CompanyDomain $CompanyDomain -APIToken $APIToken
  3. Retrieve the data from a specific resource:

    $data = Select-Pipedrive -Connection $pipedrive -Table "Deals"

    You can also use the Invoke-Pipedrive cmdlet to execute pure SQL-92 statements:

    $data = Invoke-Pipedrive -Connection $pipedrive -Query 'SELECT * FROM Deals WHERE Value = @Value' -Params @{'@Value'='50000'}
  4. Save a list of the column names from the returned data.

    $columns = ($data | Get-Member -MemberType NoteProperty | Select-Object -Property Name).Name

Inserting Pipedrive Data into the MySQL Database

With the data and column names collected, you are ready to replicate the data into a MySQL database.

  1. Install the module:

    Install-Module MySQLCmdlets
  2. Connect to MySQL, using the server address and port of the MySQL server, valid user credentials, and a specific database with the table in which the data will be replicated:

    $mysql = Connect-MySQL -User $User -Password $Password -Database $Database -Server $Server -Port $Port
  3. Loop through the Pipedrive data, store the values, and use the Add-MySQL cmdlet to insert the data into the MySQL database, one row at a time. In this example, the table will need to have the same name as the Pipedrive resource (Deals) and to exist in the database.

    $data | % { $row = $_ $values = @() $columns | % { $col = $_ $values += $row.$($col) } Add-MySQL -Connection $mysql -Table "Deals" -Columns $columns -Values $values }

You have now replicated your Pipedrive data to a MySQL database. This gives you freedom to work with Pipedrive data in the same way that you work with other MySQL tables, whether that is performing analytics, building reports, or other business functions.


  • Once you have connected to Pipedrive and MySQL in PowerShell, you can pipe command results to perform the replication in a single line:

    Select-Pipedrive -Connection $pipedrive -Table "Deals" | % { $row = $_ $values = @() $columns | % { $col = $_ $values += $row.$($col) } Add-MySQL -Connection $mysql -Table "Deals" -Columns $columns -Values $values }
  • If you wish to replicate the Pipedrive data to another database using another PowerShell module, you will want to exclude the Columns, Connection, and Table columns from the data returned by the Select-Pipedrive cmdlet since those columns are used to help pipe data from one CData cmdlet to another:

    $columns = ($data | Get-Member -MemberType NoteProperty | Select-Object -Property Name).Name | ? {$_ -NotIn @('Columns','Connection','Table')}
