Connect Superblocks to MySQL to build apps with read and write access to a MySQL database:
- Read data from a database and utilize it in API steps or UI components
- Save information retrieved by other API steps or UI components by writing data to a database
Setting up MySQL
1. Add integration
Select MySQL from the integrations page.
2. Configure settings
Fill out the form with the following settings:
|Name||Name that will be displayed to users when selecting this integration in Superblocks|
|Host||Hostname or IP address to connect to|
|Port||Port to use when connecting to MySQL|
|Database Name||Name of database to connect to|
|Database Username||Username to use to connect|
|Database Password||Password for database username|
|Enable SSL||Connect via SSL if selected|
|Use a self-signed SSL certificate||Provide Server CA, Client Key, and Client Cert if selected|
3. Test and save
Click Test Connection to check that Superblocks can connect to the data source.
After connecting successfully, click Create to save the integration.
4. Set profiles
Optionally, configure different profiles for separate development environments.
Creating MySQL steps
Connect to your MySQL integration from Superblocks by creating steps in Application APIs, Workflows, and Scheduled Jobs. You can configure a Superblocks MySQL integration with read only, read/write, or write only users. You can then configure a Superblocks MySQL step to read from a database, as well as modify/delete data. To get started, enter your SQL query into the text area of the MySQL step. Then click "Run" to see the Result and Executed SQL statement below.
Create an admin dashboard that reads from MySQL and other sources. Mix in APIs to allow support agents to refund orders, update shipping statuses, or transform large datasets in a single UI.
Enrich customer order data within MySQL with shipping data from Snowflake or other datastores.
Send out a daily report via email of new customer bookings.
