Support for databaseName for MySQL source

Hello there :wave:

I’ve been wondering whether there are any plans on adding support for connections to a single MySQL database instead of the entire MySQL server itself. There is a databaseName field on PostgeSQL (which is kinda enforced by the design itself) and I’d love to know whether there is / will be a way of providing such (probably optional) parameter for MySQL one day. TIA! 🙇‍♂️


Currently this is not in the roadmap. Do you have too many databases?

@balaji.ramaswamy thanks for getting back to me so quickly! I guess this is more about scoping queries to a specific database by default so it is not necessary to include a database name pointer in SQL and we avoid the risk of reading from an unintended database with a common table name :slight_smile:
