Create, configure, test, and save a MySQL® native interface data source for a MySQL database.

Create a MySQL native interface data source for a MySQL native interface database connection.

vendor = "MySQL";
opts = databaseConnectionOptions("native",vendor)
opts = 
  SQLConnectionOptions with properties:

              DataSourceName: ""
                      Vendor: "MySQL"

                DatabaseName: ""
                      Server: "localhost"
                  PortNumber: 3306

opts is an SQLConnectionOptions object with these properties:

  • DataSourceName — Name of the data source

  • Vendor — Database vendor name

  • DatabaseName — Name of the database

  • Server — Name of the database server

  • PortNumber — Port number

Configure the data source by setting the database connection options for the data source MySQLDataSource, database name toystore_doc, database server dbtb01, and port number 3306.

opts = setoptions(opts, ...
    'DataSourceName',"MySQLDataSource", ...
    'DatabaseName',"toystore_doc",'Server',"dbtb01", ...
    'PortNumber',3306)
opts = 
  SQLConnectionOptions with properties:

              DataSourceName: "MySQLDataSource"
                      Vendor: "MySQL"

                DatabaseName: "toystore_doc"
                      Server: "dbtb01"
                  PortNumber: 3306

The setoptions function sets the DataSourceName, DatabaseName, Server, and PortNumber properties in the SQLConnectionOptions object.

Test the database connection with a user name and password. The testConnection function returns the logical 1, which indicates the database connection is successful.

username = "root";
password = "matlab";
status = testConnection(opts,username,password)
status = logical
   1

Save the configured data source.

saveAsDataSource(opts)

You can connect to the new data source using the mysql function or the Database Explorer app.

Edit an existing MySQL® native interface data source for a MySQL database. Set an additional driver-specific option and save the data source.

Retrieve the existing MySQL data source MySQLDataSource.

datasource = "MySQLDataSource";
opts = databaseConnectionOptions(datasource)
opts = 
  SQLConnectionOptions with properties:

              DataSourceName: "MySQLDataSource"
                      Vendor: "MySQL"

                DatabaseName: "toystore_doc"
                      Server: "dbtb01"
                  PortNumber: 3306

opts is an SQLConnectionOptions object with these properties:

  • DataSourceName — Name of the data source

  • Vendor — Database vendor name

  • DatabaseName — Name of the database

  • Server — Name of the database server

  • PortNumber — Port number

Add a driver-specific connection option by using a name-value pair argument. The option specifies a timeout value for establishing the database connection. opts contains a new section of properties for the additional connection option.

opts = setoptions(opts,"OPT_CONNECT_TIMEOUT",20)
opts = 
  SQLConnectionOptions with properties:

              DataSourceName: "MySQLDataSource"
                      Vendor: "MySQL"

                DatabaseName: "toystore_doc"
                      Server: "dbtb01"
                  PortNumber: 3306

	Additional Connection Options:

         OPT_CONNECT_TIMEOUT: 20

Test the database connection with a user name and password. The testConnection function returns the logical 1, which indicates the database connection is successful.

username = "root";
password = "matlab";
status = testConnection(opts,username,password)
status = logical
   1

Save the updated data source.

saveAsDataSource(opts)

Input Arguments

collapse all

Database connection options, specified as an SQLConnectionOptions object.

MySQL native interface connection options, specified as one or more name-value pair arguments. Option is a character vector or string scalar that specifies the name of a MySQL native interface connection option. OptionValue specifies the value of the option. OptionValue can be a character vector, string scalar, logical scalar, or numeric scalar. You can specify any MySQL native interface connection option that is a property of the SQLConnectionOptions object. You can also set driver-specific connection options.

Example: 'DataSourceName',"myDataSource",'Server',"localhost",'PortNumber',3306 configures a MySQL native interface data source named myDataSource that is located on the local server with the port number 3306.
