Connect to PowerShell Scripts in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure PowerShell scripts as a data source.

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

Integrate PowerShell Scripts 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.

The ScriptLocation, under the Data section, must be set to a valid script location.

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

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