Stripe ODBC Driver

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

Access Stripe data like you would a database - read, write, and update Accounts, BankAccounts, Customers, Transfers, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



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

Drop the CData ODBC Driver for Stripe into your LAMP or WAMP stack to build Stripe-connected Web applications. This article shows how to use PHP's ODBC built-in functions to connect to Stripe 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 OAuth authentication standard to connect to Stripe. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to register an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

Establish a Connection

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

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Stripe 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.

$conn = odbc_pconnect("CData ODBC Stripe Source","user","password"); ... odbc_close($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 Customers WHERE Delinquent = ?");

Execute Queries

Execute prepared statements with odbc_execute.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Stripe Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Customers WHERE Delinquent = ?"); $success = odbc_execute($query, array('False'));

Execute nonparameterized queries with odbc_exec.

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Stripe Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT Email, Discount FROM Customers");

Process Results

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

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Stripe data Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_exec($conn, "SELECT Email, Discount FROM Customers"); while($row = odbc_fetch_array($query)){ echo $row["Email"] . "\n"; }

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

$conn = odbc_connect("CData ODBC Stripe data Source","user","password"); $query = odbc_prepare($conn, "SELECT * FROM Customers WHERE Delinquent = ?"); $success = odbc_execute($query, array('False')); 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 Stripe-specific adaptations of the PHP community documentation for all ODBC functions.
