Redis ODBC Driver

The Redis ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with Redis high-performance data stores, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

Read, write, and update Redis data through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



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

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

Integrate Redis 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.

Set the following connection properties to connect to a Redis instance:

  • Server: Set this to the name or address of the server your Redis instance is running on. You can specify the port in Port.
  • Password: Set this to the password used to authenticate with a password-protected Redis instance , using the Redis AUTH command.

Set UseSSL to negotiate SSL/TLS encryption when you connect.

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

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