Create ODBC Connection in DBeaver with Devart ODBC Drivers

DBeaver is multiplatform free, open source database management system and SQL client for developers and database administrators. It is used to access any database or cloud application that employs an ODBC or JDBC driver, such as or Oracle, Salesforce, SQL Server, MySQL, Mailchimp, or NetSuite. Devart DBeaver provides the user with a robust, solid, and user-friendly GUI, while allowing to easily execute SQL queries, browse database objects, scroll resultsets, generate test data, browse and edit metadata, manage SQL scripts, export/import/backup of data, render ER diagrams, and generate the DDL. DBeaver also supports BLOB/CLOB and is well-suited both for individuals and small businesses.

Key Features

Direct mode

Native connection to traditional databases and cloud-based services from DBeaver using an ODBC driver. No need to use client software to fetch your inventory table or a list of orders from popular data stores like Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and many other databases, as well as cloud services like Salesforce.

SQL data type mapping

Full support and mapping of data source-specific SQL data types to the standard ODBC data types. Access diverse data stores from DBeaver through a unified interface with exceptional speed. You can create custom mappings between data source fields and ODBC data types.

Secure connection

Devart ODBC drivers use SSL / SSH and HTTPS tunneling to protect user data as it flows between a remote server and DBeaver over the Internet. Tunneling allows you to send communications securely between machines.

ANSI SQL-92 standard support for cloud services

Devart ODBC drivers address one of the major challenges of retrieving data from email marketing, CRM, accounting and other cloud applications into DBeaver: their lack of adequate API support for SQL-92 standard SQL commands. Our drivers are designed to get the most out of cloud service APIs.

Connect DBeaver to ODBC data source and access data in 3 simple steps

Install the driver and configure an ODBC data source in the driver settings

01. Install the driver and set up the ODBC data source in driver settings. Do not forget to set up the Ansi value for String Types option to prevent SQL_WVARCHAR issues.

Set up the data source
Start DBeaver and create a linked server

02. Start DBeaver, go to Database section of the navigation menu and create a New Database Connection. In connect to database window, select ODBC and proceed next.

Start DBeaver and create a database connection
Run a query against the data storage

03. Enter the previously configured DSN details into the Database/Schema field and proceed to Test Connection. This step will ensure that everything has been set up properly.

Run a query against the data storage

ODBC Data Connectors

Fast and unified access to databases

We offer you optimal data access by means of ODBC and native database client libraries. However, you can avoid using client libraries, since our ODBC drivers are able to connect via the native protocol directly without using client software at all.

Fully Unicode-compliant ODBC drivers

Fully Unicode-compliant ODBC drivers

Unicode is the universal standard for encoding characters in most languages. Our ODBC drivers provide a Unicode-compliant way to work with strings and characters in databases: they are capable of mapping Unicode function calls and string data types to ANSI encoding.

All major versions of data stores are supported

All major versions of data stores are supported

Our ODBC drivers can be used to interact and perform SQL CRUD operations on popular traditional databases and cloud services from DBeaver, such as MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, Salesforce, or Mailchimp.

Regular feature update rollouts and timely bug fixes

Regular feature updates and timely bug fixes

We frequently release new versions of ODBC drivers with new capabilities or enhancements for already existing features. Changes and new features are added to the roadmap based on customer feedback. Bug fixes and minor improvements are released as nightly builds to resolve issues in a timely fashion.

Strict compliance with Microsoft ODBC 3.52 Specification

Strict compliance with Microsoft ODBC 3.52 Specification

Our ODBC drivers provide full support for the standard Open Database Connectivity API functions and data types. ODBC interface allows DBeaver to connect to ODBC databases using the SQL language. Additionally, we have designed Advanced Connection String parameters that implement different types of behavior.

Exceptional SQL query performance and bulk updates

Exceptional SQL query performance and bulk updates

Our ODBC drivers allow you to perform bulk record update in DBeaver in a single update statement while maintaining decent update speed. When you need to update a table with a million of records, you can use a single update operation which significantly reduces execution time compared to row-by-row operations.
