TigerGraph ODBC Driver

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

Access TigerGraph data like you would a relational database through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



Execute MySQL queries against live TigerGraph data from MySQL Workbench.

You can use the SQL Gateway from the ODBC Driver for TigerGraph to query TigerGraph data through a MySQL interface. Follow the procedure below to start the MySQL remoting service of the SQL Gateway and work with live TigerGraph data in MySQL Workbench.

Connect to TigerGraph 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.

To authenticate with your TigerGraph instance, set the User, Password, and URL properties to valid TigerGraph credentials. By default connections are made on port 14240.

Configure the SQL Gateway

See the SQL Gateway Overview to set up connectivity to TigerGraph data as a virtual MySQL database. You will configure a MySQL remoting service that listens for MySQL requests from clients. The service can be configured in the SQL Gateway UI.
