Azure Data Studio (ADS) is a widely used tool among developers and administrators, providing the ability to work with multiple databases across data platforms and cloud deployment models, and to perform the most common tasks on all your databases from a single platform.
Today, we’re pleased to announce public preview availability of a new MySQL extension for Azure Data Studio! With this extension, you can now connect to and modify MySQL databases along with your other databases, taking advantage of the modern editor experience and capabilities in Azure Data Studio, such as IntelliSense, code snippets, source control integration, native Jupyter Notebooks, an integrated terminal, and more. You can use this new tooling with any MySQL server hosted on-premises, on virtual machines, on managed MySQL in other clouds, and on Azure Database for MySQL – Flexible Server.
To try out this new functionality, download Azure Data Studio and install the “MySQL” extension from the extensions gallery. For more details on how to get started, watch the following demo video or refer the QuickStart document on Microsoft Learn.
This new MySQL extension enables database developers, administrators, data scientists, and engineers to easily work with any MySQL server (including Azure Database for MySQL flexible servers) along with their other databases, using the powerful capabilities of Azure Data Studio.
We welcome any contributions to the extension - be it logging bugs, submitting updates through pull requests, reporting issues, or adding suggestions. Navigate to the GitHub repository to learn more.
