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.



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

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

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.

Establish a Connection

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

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Streak 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.

$conn = odbc_pconnect("CData ODBC Streak Source","user","password"); ... odbc_close($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 Users WHERE Email = ?");

Execute Queries

Execute prepared statements with odbc_execute.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Streak Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Users WHERE Email = ?"); $success = odbc_execute($query, array('user@domain.com'));

Execute nonparameterized queries with odbc_exec.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Streak Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT UserKey, Email FROM Users WHERE Email = 'user@domain.com'");

Process Results

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

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Streak data Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT UserKey, Email FROM Users WHERE Email = 'user@domain.com'"); while($row = odbc_fetch_array($query)){ echo $row["UserKey"] . "\n"; }

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

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Streak data Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Users WHERE Email = ?"); $success = odbc_execute($query, array('user@domain.com')); 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 Streak-specific adaptations of the PHP community documentation for all ODBC functions.
