Streak ODBC Driver

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

Access Streak data like you would a database - read, write, and update Streak Contacts, Pipelines, Tasks, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



Use node-odbc to execute SQL queries against Streak data from Node.js.

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime environment that allows you to run JavaScript code outside of a browser. With the CData ODBC Driver for Streak, you can access live Streak data from Node.js apps and scripts. In this article, we walk through installing node-odbc and the required tools to create a simple Node.js app with access to live Streak data.

With built-in optimized data processing, the CData ODBC Driver offers unmatched performance for interacting with live Streak data in Node.js. When you issue complex SQL queries from Node.js to Streak, the driver pushes supported SQL operations, like filters and aggregations, directly to Streak and utilizes the embedded SQL engine to process unsupported operations client-side (often SQL functions and JOIN operations).

Connecting to Streak Data

If you have not already done so, provide values for the required connection properties in the data source name (DSN). You can use the built-in Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to configure the DSN. This is also the last step of the driver installation. See the "Getting Started" chapter in the help documentation for a guide to using the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure a DSN.

Use the following steps to generate a new API key for authenticating to Streak.

  1. Navigate to Gmail
  2. Click on the Streak dropdown to the right of the search bar
  3. Select the Integrations button. This will open a window where you can view existing integrations and create new API keys.
  4. Under the Streak API section of integrations, click the button to Create New Key.

Building node-odbc

In order to connect to Streak through the CData ODBC Driver, you need to build node-odbc manually (after installing the required tools).

Installing the Required Tools

The following commands install the tools required to build node-odbc (note the -g parameter, which installs the tools globally).

npm i -g windows-build-tools
npm i -g node-gyp

Building node-odbc

After installing the required tools, create a directory for the Node.js app and install odbc (which builds the binary for us to use in our Node.js script).

mkdir nodeodbc
cd nodeodbc
npm i -g node

Querying Streak from Node.js

With the ODBC Driver installed, a DSN Configured, and node-odbc built, we are ready to query live Streak data from a Node.js app. The sample code below connects to a specific DSN and queries the Users table.

myscript.js

const odbc = require('odbc');

async function queryStreak() {
    const connection = await odbc.connect(`DSN=CData Streak Source`);
    const data = await connection.query('SELECT UserKey, Email FROM Users');
    console.log(data);
}

queryStreak();

Once you write the app, use node to execute the script:

node myscript.js
