To add a MySQL data source, all you need is the credentials and info about the data you want to import.
To add a new data source go to Settings > Data Sources > Add new data source and select MySQL. Remember only admins can access worksapce settings. Let’s see how to make the connection:
Fill in all the required fields
- Alias → (Required) The name you'll see for this source in Latitude. This doesn’t affect anything in your database.
- User → (Required) The user credentials to authenticate in your database.
- Password → (Required) The password to authenticate in your database.
- Host → (Required) The host for the database connection, which can be expressed as either an IP address like

Now, it's time to check that everything was set up correctly. Go to a project, add a MySQL data source and check that you get results.
