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.



This article demonstrates how to use the CData ODBC Driver for Streak to connect to Streak data and execute queries in PowerBuilder.

The CData ODBC Driver for Streak can be used from any platform or development technology that supports ODBC, including PowerBuilder. This article shows how to connect to Streak data and execute queries from the Database Painter and controls such as the DataWindow.

Connect to Streak as an ODBC Data Source

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.

Create a Profile for the ODBC Driver for Streak

Follow the steps below to use the Database Painter tool to create a database profile based on an ODBC DSN (data source name) for Streak. In the Database Painter, you can use wizards and the UI to work with Streak data.

  1. In PowerBuilder, click Tools -> Database Painter.
  2. In the Objects window in the Database Painter, right-click the ODBC node and click New Profile.
  3. On the Connection tab, enter a name for the profile and select the Streak DSN in the Data Source menu.
  4. To view and modify a table, right-click a table and then click Edit Data -> Grid.

Using Streak Data with PowerBuilder Controls

You can use standard PowerBuilder objects to connect to ODBC data sources and execute queries. The following example shows how to retrieve Streak data into a DataWindow. You can add the following code to the open method:

SQLCA.DBMS = "ODBC" SQLCA.DBParm = "ConnectString='DSN=CData Streak Source'" CONNECT USING SQLCA; dw_users.SetTransObject(SQLCA); dw_users.Retrieve();
