Connecting to MYSQL DB on AWS Which can only be accessed through another server on AWS

Hi, 

 

I am trying to connect to a MySQL DB on AWS EC2 Server. But the problem is due to security restrictions it can only be accessed through another server on AWS. So I have to build a connection like below PowerBI - > AWS EC2 Dev Server -> AWS MySQL DB. 

 

Is it possible to do it? If so can you please help with any references?

@Jagan_MFilterIT , You need allow power bi access outside AWS(especially service). You can have a remote machine with a power bi desktop and do the development work in power bi.

Later for Power bi data gateway you have to open port outside cloud so that you can view data on power bi service.

 

You can use a single machine for data gateway and power bi desktop. This machine should able to communicate inside and outside AWS

Hi @Jagan_MFilterIT ,

About connecting AWS datasource like mysql, you can refer this video which introduces it:

AWS - Power BI to RDS MySQL Connection 

 

In addition, you can try to use OData connector in power bi desktop to try to connect, refer this article:

Import AWS Management Data into the Power BI
