Hevo can load data from any of your Pipelines into a MySQL database. In this document, we will walk through the steps to add MySQL as a Destination.
|We do not recommend using a MySQL Destination for building your production Pipelines. It can perform poorly even for low volumes of data. If you run into performance issues, these may be unresolvable, and you will have to migrate to a different Destination.|
Step 1. Add Destination
Do one of the following:
After you configure the Source during Pipeline creation, click ADD DESTINATION.
Step 2. Select Destination Type
In the Add Destination page, select MySQL.
Alternatively, use the Search Destination Type search box to search for the Destination.
Step 3. Configure MySQL Connection Settings
Specify the following settings in the Configure your MySQL Destination page:
- Destination Name: A unique name for this Destination.
- Database Host: MySQL host’s IP address or DNS.
- Database Port: The port on which your MySQL server is listening for connections (default is 3306).
- Database User: A user with a non-administrative role of the MySQL database.
- Database Password: Password of the user.
- Database Name: Name of the Destination database where data will be loaded.
Sanitize Table/Column Names?: Enable this option to remove all non-alphanumeric characters, spaces in between the table and column names and replace them with an underscore (_). Read Name Sanitization.
Step 4. Test Connection
After filling the details, click on TEST CONNECTION button to test connectivity to the Destination MySQL server.
Step 5. Save Destination
Once the test is successful, save the Destination by clicking on SAVE DESTINATION.
- You can replicate data for only 4090 columns in a given MySQL table. Read Limits on the Number of Columns.
