Specifying connection settings for a MySQL database connection

The Specify connection settings option provides the following options that allow you to modify the connection settings:

  • MySQL server: Type the fully qualified domain name of the MySQL server that hosts the MySQL database that you want to participate in data synchronization operations.

  • Access MySQL server using: Type the user name and password of the account with which you want to access MySQL server. Ensure the account has sufficient permissions to perform operations (Read, Write) on objects in the database to which you want to connect.

  • Connect to database: Type the name of the database to which you want to connect on the MySQL server.

  • Advanced: Click this button to specify additional parameters you want to add to the connection string that will be used to access the MySQL server. In the dialog box that opens, click the Add Parameter button to specify the name and value of the parameter you want to add to the connection string.

  • To test the connection with the new parameters, click Test connection.

Specifying how to select and modify data for a MySQL database connection

The Specify how to select and modify data setting provides the following options that allow you to specify the data you want to participate in the synchronization:

  • Use data from this table: Allows you to select a database table that includes the data you want to participate in the synchronization operations. You can click Preview to preview the database table you have selected.

  • Use an SQL query to specify data: Allows you to compose an SQL query that provides a more flexible way for specifying the data for synchronization. For example, you can use this option to specify multiple database tables.

  • Configure Settings: Click this button to specify settings for modifying data in the connected system during synchronization operations. For example, you can specify the database tables in which you want to insert, update, or delete data during synchronization operations.


Allows you to configure the running timeout for all SQL queries you specified in the connection settings (for example, those specified in the Specify How to Select and Modify Data option). Use the SQL query execution timeout box to type the timeout value you want to use.
