Cannot connect to Azure MySQL from Power BI Report Server

Hello everyone,

 

I have some issues conneting to my Azure MySQL Server in Power BI Report Server.

On my Power BI Desktop it worked after installing the mysql-connector-net-8.0.20.msi

 

If I try to configure my data sources on the Power BI Report Server I receive the following error:

 

Couldn't connect
The report server couldn't connect to the data source using the information you entered. Make sure you've entered the connection string and any credentials correctly.

MySQL: Authentication to host 'XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX' for user 'myUserName' using method 'mysql_native_password' failed with message: SSL connection is required. Please specify SSL options and retry.

 

 

Did anyone receive that error? How can I make it work also on the Report Server?

 

Thank you and best regards

Hi ! Has anyone found a solution for this problem?

I can't speak to this error specifically as I don't have any instances of mySql. But in general if you have to install a 3rd party provider on your desktop to get things to work there you would also need to install the same provider on the Report Server

Have you also installed this same msi on the Report Server?
