splunk odbc driver for 7.2.6 version


I hear "The Splunk ODBC Driver is not supported on Splunk platform versions 7.x"

We are running splunk 7.2.6 on RHEL 7.4
Is this a sure "not supported" by splunk app , or could it also work if tried..

We rely on the ODBC connection for a number of metrics reports. Our company is planning the upgrade to 7.x, so we need this connectivity soon.
