Re: Connection string for Azure My SQL Database connection with power BI

Hi @Shailesh,

I make a test using Power BI Desktop to connect to Azure MySQL database, we can directly connect to the database using Get Data->MySQL database option. Enter Server name and database name in the first screenshot, then choose Database authentication, enter username and password in the second screenshot.

You can check connection string(Server name, database name, username, password) of Azure MySQL database in Azure Portal following the instructions in this blog.

Thanks,

I haven't used an Azure My SQL database but for an Azure SQL Database, in the Azure Portal you can get the Connection String information from there. Is this running as SaaS or IaaS?
