SAP Hybris ODBC Driver

The SAP ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with live SAP Hybris C4C, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

With the SAP Hybris ODBC Driver, accessing Leads, Contacts, Opportunities, Accounts, etc. is as easy as querying a database.



The CData ODBC driver for SAP Hybris C4C enables you to create PHP applications with connectivity to SAP Hybris C4C data. Leverage the native support for ODBC in PHP.

Drop the CData ODBC Driver for SAP Hybris C4C into your LAMP or WAMP stack to build SAP Hybris C4C-connected Web applications. This article shows how to use PHP's ODBC built-in functions to connect to SAP Hybris C4C 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.

SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer uses basic authentication. Set the User and Password to your login credentials.

Establish a Connection

Open the connection to SAP Hybris C4C by calling the odbc_connect or odbc_pconnect methods. To close connections, use odbc_close or odbc_close_all.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC SAPHybrisC4C 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.

$conn = odbc_pconnect("CData ODBC SAPHybrisC4C Source","user","password"); ... odbc_close($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 AccountCollection WHERE AccountName = ?");

Execute Queries

Execute prepared statements with odbc_execute.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC SAPHybrisC4C Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM AccountCollection WHERE AccountName = ?"); $success = odbc_execute($query, array('MyAccount'));

Execute nonparameterized queries with odbc_exec.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC SAPHybrisC4C Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT ObjectID, AccountName FROM AccountCollection");

Process Results

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

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC SAP Hybris C4C data Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT ObjectID, AccountName FROM AccountCollection"); while($row = odbc_fetch_array($query)){ echo $row["ObjectID"] . "\n"; }

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

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC SAP Hybris C4C data Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM AccountCollection WHERE AccountName = ?"); $success = odbc_execute($query, array('MyAccount')); 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 SAP Hybris C4C-specific adaptations of the PHP community documentation for all ODBC functions.
