Twilio Icon Twilio ODBC Driver

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

Access Twilio data like you would a database - read, write, and update Twilio Accounts, Applications, Messages, Recordings, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.

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

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

Integrate Twilio 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.

Use the AccountSid and AuthToken connection properties to access data from your account. You obtain your live credentials on your Twilio account dashboard. Click Account -> Account Settings to obtain your test credentials.

You can then follow the steps below to register Twilio 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 Twilio data. Twilio entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

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