SSRS JDBC-ODBC Bridge Connector
In this article you will learn how to integrate
Using JDBC-ODBC Bridge Connector you will be able to connect, read, and write data from within SSRS. Follow the steps below to see how we would accomplish that.
Driver mentioned in this article is part of ODBC PowerPack which is a collection of high-performance Drivers for various API data source (i.e. REST API, JSON, XML, CSV, Amazon S3 and many more). Using familiar SQL query language you can make live connections and read/write data from API sources or JSON / XML / CSV Files inside SQL Server (T-SQL) or your favorite Reporting (i.e. Power BI, Tableau, Qlik, SSRS, MicroStrategy, Excel, MS Access), ETL Tools (i.e. Informatica, Talend, Pentaho, SSIS). You can also call our drivers from programming languages such as JAVA, C#, Python, PowerShell etc.
If you are new to ODBC and ZappySys ODBC PowerPack then check the following links to get started.

JDBC-ODBC BridgeConnection in SSRS
Create Data Source in ZappySys Data Gateway based on ZappySys JDBC Bridge Driver
Download and install ZappySys ODBC PowerPack.
Search for gateway in start menu and Open ZappySys Data Gateway:
Go to Users Tab to add our first Gateway user. Click Add; we will give it a name tdsuser and enter password you like to give. Check Admin option and click OK to save. We will use these details later when we create linked server:
Now we are ready to add a data source. Click Add, give data source a name (Copy this name somewhere, we will need it later) and then select Native - ZappySys JDBC Bridge Driver. Finally, click OK. And it will create the Data Set for it and open the ZS driver UI.
Now, we need JDBC Bridge Connection. Lets create it. When you see DSN Config Editor with zappysys logo first thing you need to do is change default DSN Name at the top and Configure JDBC Bridge Driver. Enter Credentials (In this Example We have used PostgreSQL Credentials) and then Click on Test Connection to verify your credentials.Note: Enter suitable JDBC Driver Credentials, You can read data from any JDBC Driver
This example shows how to write simple SOQL query (JDBC Bridge Object Query Language). It uses WHERE clause. For more SOQL Queries click here.
SOQL is similar to database SQL query language but much simpler and many features you use in database query may not be supported in SOQL (Such as JOIN clause not supported). But you can use following Queries for Insert, Update, Delete and Upsert(Update or Insert record if not found).SELECT orderid, customerid, orderdate, orderamount FROM "public"."zappysys"
Click OK to finish creating the data source
Read data in SSRS from ZappySys Data Gateway
- Open Visual Studio and create a new SSRS project
- Then add a new Shared Data Source (you can create a non-shared data source inside report too):
- Continue with creating the Shared Data Source. Select Microsoft SQL Server as Type and hit Build button to proceed further:
Once a window opens, configure it similarly. Configure "JdbC-OdbcBridgeDSN" as database name. Finally, hit Test Connection and OK:
- Another window opens, and it should look similarly to this one below which ends the creation of a Data Source:
- Now it's time to create a Dataset. If you don't have a report created, in one of the wizard's steps it will look like this:
- If you did not follow through report's creation wizard and already had report created, you can simply add a new dataset:
- Finally, once you complete the report, similar results show up:
