MySQL uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your MySQL account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to MySQL APIs in both code and no-code steps.

Before you connect to your MySQL database from Pipedream, please make sure your database is either:

  1. Accessible from the public internet (You may need to add a firewall rule on on port 3306), or

  2. Accessible from an SSH server that you route MySQL requests through

After that, enter the following values:

  • host: The hostname or IP address of your MySQL server
  • port: 3306, unless you run MySQL on a different port
  • username: The account username to log in
  • password: The account password to log in
  • database: The name of the MySQL database to run queries against
