Connect to Trello Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Trello data as a data source.

The CData ODBC 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 an data source for Trello in DBArtisan and execute queries. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Trello Data into DBArtisan Projects

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.

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.

You can then 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 ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. 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.
