IBM Informix is currently not officially supported. Connection is possible with generic ODBC driver. Metadata returned depends on driver version and provider.

We have tested and successfully connected to and imported metadata from IBM Informix with ODBC drivers listed below. It is highly likely it will work with other drivers as well.

Tested ODBC Driver: IBM Informix ODBC Driver (IBM Informix Client SDK)

We have tested and successfully connected to and imported metadata in following environment:

ODBC version: 4.50

Informix version: 14.10.FC1DE
