ODBC Install & Configuration

As an add-on feature, some clients may choose to implement ODBC (Open Database Connectivity). ODBC access allows customers to access and datamine their WebChart database tables. Clients familiar with MySQL, can create their own custom reports using 3rd party report data visualization software products.

3rd Party Tools

There are several data visualization software products that clients can utilize with an WebChart ODBC connection. Examples of recommended products include Tableau, Power BI/Power Query and Informatica.

Installation of the MySQL ODBC Driver

Navigate to the data visualization software products website and follow the on screen instructions to download and install the applicable MySQL ODBC drivers.

  1. You may download the WebChart CA (Certificate Authority) from here: Med-Web SSL CA 2
  2. You should have received an e-mail from the WebChart development team containing the following information needed for configuration:
    1. Hostname

    3. Username
    4. Password
    5. SSL Key
    6. SSL Cert

Instructions on connecting and setting up the data source will vary depending on the 3rd party report data visualization software utilized. If you are having trouble connecting via ODBC, your WebChart deployment consultant or support contact will facilitate a meeting with the WebChart database administrator.
