Generic MySQL

Last updated on Feb 27, 2024

MySQL is the most popular Open Source Relational SQL Database Management System used by small and large businesses. It has a customizable software and works well even with large data sets.

You can ingest data from your MySQL database using Hevo Pipelines and replicate it to a warehouse of your choice.

Source Considerations

  • MySQL does not generate log entries for cascading deletes. So, Hevo cannot capture these deletes for log-based Pipelines.

Limitations

  • Hevo only fetches tables from the MySQL database. It does not fetch other entities such as functions, stored procedures, views, and triggers.

    To fetch views, you can create individual Pipelines in Custom SQL mode. However, some limitations may arise based on the type of data synchronization, the query mode, or the number of Events. Contact Hevo Support for more details.
