With our new function “SQL Data Warehouse” you can easily export all your stored infos from zistemo to a SQL database. This gives you the full control of your data and you can create every reports or chart you can imagine. We automatically update every hour the database informations. Optimal for BI analysis with Tableau or Google Data Studio. This feature is exclusively for our “enterprise” users.
Note: zistemo supports MySQL Version 5.6. or 5.7. also a SSL connection is not supported. See HERE, how to connect with MySQL 8.0
How to add the Integration
How to connect with MySQL 8.0
By default and for some reason, mysql 8 default plugin is auth_socket. Applications will most times expect to log in to your database using a password. If you have not yet already changed your mysql default authentication plugin, you can do so by:
- Log in as root to mysql
- Run this sql command: ALTER USER ‘root’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_passwordBY ‘password’;
Replace ‘password’ with your root password. In case your application does not log in to your database with the root user, replace the ‘root’ user in the above command with the user that your application uses.
