unable to connect to mysql

Hi

 

I'm trying to connect to my online mysql database through Power BI Desktop, but no matter the configuartion, i get an error :

 

« MySQL : Unable to connect to any of the specified MySQL hosts. »

 

Is there an IP to whitelist on the firewall ? is it my own IP ? Any other idea 

 

Thanks

Re: unable to connect to mysql

Hi @selofer,

 

Based on my research, you should be able to follow steps below to troubleshoot this issue.Smiley Happy

 

Firstly, are you able to connect to the database through MySQL workbench? Make sure that MySQL workbench is installed  on the same machine with Power BI Desktop. If the connection fails, please follow the instructions in this blog to troubleshoot this issue.

Secondly, if you are able to connect to database using MySQL workbench, please use same connection parameters in Power BI Desktop, and also add port number with server name to connect to MySQL.

Thirdly, ensure that you install MySQL Connector/Net 6.6.5 for Microsoft Windows on your computer. Select the driver that matches your Power BI Desktop installation (32-bit or 64-bit).

 

Regards
