Connect to Splunk Data from PowerBuilder

This article demonstrates how to access Splunk data from PowerBuilder using the CData ADO.NET Provider for Splunk.

The CData ADO.NET providers are easy-to-use, standards-based controls that can be used from any platform or development technology that supports Microsoft .NET, including PowerBuilder. This article shows how to use the CData ADO.NET Provider for Splunk in PowerBuilder.

This article shows how to create a basic PowerBuilder application that uses the CData ADO.NET Provider for Splunk to perform reads and writes.

  1. In a new WPF Window Application solution, add all the Visual Controls needed for the connection properties. Below is a typical connection string:

    user=MyUserName;password=MyPassword;URL=MyURL;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH

    To authenticate requests, set the User, Password, and URL properties to valid Splunk credentials. The port on which the requests are made to Splunk is port 8089.

    The data provider uses plain-text authentication by default, since the data provider attempts to negotiate TLS/SSL with the server.

    If you need to manually configure TLS/SSL, see Getting Started -> Advanced Settings in the data provider help documentation.

  2. Add the DataGrid control from the .NET controls.
  3. Configure the columns of the DataGrid control. Below are several columns from the Account table: <DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="False" Margin="13,249,12,14" Name="datagrid1" TabIndex="70" ItemsSource="{Binding}"> <DataGrid.Columns> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="idColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=Id}" Header="Id" Width="SizeToHeader" /> <DataGridTextColumn x:Name="nameColumn" Binding="{Binding Path=Name}" Header="Name" Width="SizeToHeader" /> ... </DataGrid.Columns> </DataGrid>
  4. Add a reference to the CData ADO.NET Provider for Splunk assembly.

Connect the DataGrid

Once the visual elements have been configured, you can use standard ADO.NET objects like Connection, Command, and DataAdapter to populate a DataTable with the results of an SQL query:

System.Data.CData.Splunk.SplunkConnection conn conn = create System.Data.CData.Splunk.SplunkConnection(connectionString) System.Data.CData.Splunk.SplunkCommand comm comm = create System.Data.CData.Splunk.SplunkCommand(command, conn) System.Data.DataTable table table = create System.Data.DataTable System.Data.CData.Splunk.SplunkDataAdapter dataAdapter dataAdapter = create System.Data.CData.Splunk.SplunkDataAdapter(comm) dataAdapter.Fill(table) datagrid1.ItemsSource=table.DefaultView

The code above can be used to bind data from the specified query to the DataGrid.
