Ingesting MySQL Table Metadata Without GraphQL

Original Slack Thread

Hello. I’m trying to basically pull a mysql table to display it on the front end. Upon research so far it seems like I might have to do it through graphQL. I’ve been following these instructions to set up a new graphQL query: . I’m getting confused overall. I think I understand how to set up types and their fields but I don’t understand where those fields are used. For example if I set up a database types that takes in port number, password, etc, how do I plug those into mysql to get table information?

Hey Cory! I’m not sure I follow… you shouldn’t need to use GraphQL to ingest metadata from MySQL. Have you looked through our ingestion guides?
