Manage SendGrid Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for SendGrid.

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

Integrate SendGrid Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register SendGrid data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic JDBC.
  3. Click Manage.
  4. In the resulting dialog, click New. Enter a name for the driver and click Add. In the resulting dialog, navigate to the driver JAR. The driver JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. In the Connection URL box, enter credentials and other required connection properties in the JDBC URL.

    To make use of all the available features, provide the User and Password connection properties.

    To connect with limited features, you can set the APIKey connection property instead. See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to obtaining the API key.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

    For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the SendGrid JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.sendgrid.jar

    Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:sendgrid:User=admin;Password=abc123;
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to SendGrid data. SendGrid entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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