Manage Trello Data in DBArtisan as a JDBC Source

Use wizards in DBArtisan to create a JDBC data source for Trello.

The CData JDBC Driver for Trello seamlessly integrates Trello data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Trello data as a database. This article shows how to create a JDBC source for Trello in DBArtisan. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Trello Data into DBArtisan Projects

Follow the steps below to register Trello data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic JDBC.
  3. Click Manage.
  4. In the resulting dialog, click New. Enter a name for the driver and click Add. In the resulting dialog, navigate to the driver JAR. The driver JAR is located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
  5. In the Connection URL box, enter credentials and other required connection properties in the JDBC URL.

    Trello uses token-based authentication to grant third-party applications access to their API. When a user has granted an application access to their data, the application is given a token that can be used to make requests to Trello's API.

    Trello's API can be accessed in 2 different ways. The first is using Trello's own Authorization Route, and the second is using OAuth1.0.

    • Authorization Route: At the moment of registration, Trello assigns an API key and Token to the account. See the Help documentation for information on how to connect via the Authorization route.
    • OAuth Route: Similar to using Authorization, OAuth creates an Application Id and Secret when you create your account. See the Help documentation for information on how to to connect.

    Built-in Connection String Designer

    For assistance in constructing the JDBC URL, use the connection string designer built into the Trello JDBC Driver. Either double-click the JAR file or execute the jar file from the command-line.

    java -jar cdata.jdbc.trello.jar

    Fill in the connection properties and copy the connection string to the clipboard.

    Below is a typical connection string:

    jdbc:trello:APIKey=myApiKey;Token=myGeneratedToken;InitiateOAuth=GETANDREFRESH
  6. Finish the wizard to connect to Trello data. Trello entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Trello data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Trello API.
