An easy-to-use set of PowerShell Cmdlets offering real-time access to Streak. The Cmdlets allow users to easily read, write, update, and delete live data - just like working with SQL server.

PowerShell Scripting to Replicate Streak Data to MySQL

Write a simple PowerShell script to replicate Streak data to a MySQL database.

The CData Cmdlets for Streak offer live access to Streak data from within PowerShell. Using PowerShell scripts, you can easily automate regular tasks like data replication. This article will walk through using the CData Cmdlets for Streak and the CData Cmdlets for MySQL in PowerShell to replicate Streak data to a MySQL database.

After obtaining the needed connection properties, accessing Streak data in PowerShell and preparing for replication consists of four basic steps.

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.

Collecting Streak Data

  1. Install the module:

    Install-Module StreakCmdlets
  2. Connect to Streak:

    $streak = Connect-Streak -ApiKey $ApiKey
  3. Retrieve the data from a specific resource:

    $data = Select-Streak -Connection $streak -Table "Users"

    You can also use the Invoke-Streak cmdlet to execute pure SQL-92 statements:

    $data = Invoke-Streak -Connection $streak -Query 'SELECT * FROM Users WHERE Email = @Email' -Params @{'@Email'='[email protected]'}
  4. Save a list of the column names from the returned data.

    $columns = ($data | Get-Member -MemberType NoteProperty | Select-Object -Property Name).Name

Inserting Streak Data into the MySQL Database

With the data and column names collected, you are ready to replicate the data into a MySQL database.

  1. Install the module:

    Install-Module MySQLCmdlets
  2. Connect to MySQL, using the server address and port of the MySQL server, valid user credentials, and a specific database with the table in which the data will be replicated:

    $mysql = Connect-MySQL -User $User -Password $Password -Database $Database -Server $Server -Port $Port
  3. Loop through the Streak data, store the values, and use the Add-MySQL cmdlet to insert the data into the MySQL database, one row at a time. In this example, the table will need to have the same name as the Streak resource (Users) and to exist in the database.

    $data | % { $row = $_ $values = @() $columns | % { $col = $_ $values += $row.$($col) } Add-MySQL -Connection $mysql -Table "Users" -Columns $columns -Values $values }

You have now replicated your Streak data to a MySQL database. This gives you freedom to work with Streak data in the same way that you work with other MySQL tables, whether that is performing analytics, building reports, or other business functions.


  • Once you have connected to Streak and MySQL in PowerShell, you can pipe command results to perform the replication in a single line:

    Select-Streak -Connection $streak -Table "Users" | % { $row = $_ $values = @() $columns | % { $col = $_ $values += $row.$($col) } Add-MySQL -Connection $mysql -Table "Users" -Columns $columns -Values $values }
  • If you wish to replicate the Streak data to another database using another PowerShell module, you will want to exclude the Columns, Connection, and Table columns from the data returned by the Select-Streak cmdlet since those columns are used to help pipe data from one CData cmdlet to another:

    $columns = ($data | Get-Member -MemberType NoteProperty | Select-Object -Property Name).Name | ? {$_ -NotIn @('Columns','Connection','Table')}
