Managing MySQL Connectors

The MySQL connector allows users to visualize data stored in MySQL databases. Zoomdata supports MySQL versions 5.6 and later.

The MySQL connector requires a JDBC driver to be configured before you can connect to your data source. You can download the driver from the vendor's site. If you are upgrading, keep in mind you need to configure the JDBC driver - see Upgrading Zoomdata Server to v2.5 for instructions. For more information and steps, see Adding a JDBC Driver .
