Connecting to MySQL

This topic describes how to import data into Sisense's ElastiCube, and how to use Introducing Live Models.

Sisense enables easy and quick access to databases, tables and views contained with MySQL databases. Sisense supports connections to MySQL V5.6 and later. However, to use custom columns or tables in Live with MySQL, then you need MySQL V8.0+.

Note:

For the list of supported connectors, see Introduction to Data Sources.


You can import your data into a Sisense ElastiCube, or connect your data to a Sisense Live model, using Introducing Live Models.

Sisense uses MySQL JDBC Driver to establish the connection with the MySQL data source (applies to both ElastiCube and Live).
For information on additional parameters that can be used, see this section of the MySQL Connector Developer Guide.
