Query Wasabi Data in MySQL Workbench

Execute MySQL queries against live Wasabi data from MySQL Workbench.

You can use the SQL Gateway from the ODBC Driver for Wasabi to query Wasabi data through a MySQL interface. Follow the procedure below to start the MySQL remoting service of the SQL Gateway and work with live Wasabi data in MySQL Workbench.

Connect to Wasabi Data

If you have not already done so, provide values for the required connection properties in the data source name (DSN). You can use the built-in Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to configure the DSN. This is also the last step of the driver installation. See the "Getting Started" chapter in the help documentation for a guide to using the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure a DSN.

To authorize Wasabi requests, provide the credentials for an administrator account or for an IAM user with custom permissions. Set AccessKey to the access key Id. Set SecretKey to the secret access key.

Note: You can connect as the AWS account administrator, but it is recommended to use IAM user credentials to access AWS services.

For information on obtaining the credentials and other authentication methods, refer to the Getting Started section of the Help documentation.

Configure the SQL Gateway

See the SQL Gateway Overview to set up connectivity to Wasabi data as a virtual MySQL database. You will configure a MySQL remoting service that listens for MySQL requests from clients. The service can be configured in the SQL Gateway UI.
