MySQL setup guide

Follow these steps to use MySQL as your source.

Prerequisite - Configure MySQL for CDC

Upsolver supports ingesting CDC data from relational databases including MySQL. Upsolver provides CDC capabilities by running a Debezium Engine under the hood. Connectors detect and ingest changes automatically.

Step 1 - Connect to your MySQL

Select an existing MySQL connection, or create a new one.

Create a new MySQL connection

Connection String
Enter your connection string in the following format:
  • HOST - hostname (e.g. database instance endpoint in AWS RDS)
  • PORT - port number
Username and Password
Provide the username and password to authenticate to the database.

Step 2 - Select schemas, tables, and columns to ingest

There are two ways to replicate objects to the target:
  1. 1.
    Manually select the schemas, tables, and columns.
  2. 2.
    Use regular expressions to specify which tables are included and which columns are excluded.
The following examples show how to use a regular expression to include specific tables:
Select all tables in the db_name database
db_name.users, db_name.items
Select users and items tables in the db_name database
Select all tables in the db1 database that start with items_
By default, Upsolver ingests all columns in the tables that match the regular expression. Below are examples of regular expressions to exclude columns from included tables:
Select all columns starting with address_ in the users table in the db database.
Select all columns ending in _pii across all tables in the db database.
Schema evolution
By default, new schemas, tables, and columns added after the job is launched, will be replicated to the target.
You can overwrite the default behavior and set specific behavior for newly created schemas, tables in a specific schema, or columns in a specific table.
