MySQL Integration

Guide for Resmo MySQL integration

Resmo seamlessly integrates with MySQL, providing comprehensive visibility and ensuring the safety and compliance of your MySQL environment.

What does Resmo offer to MySQL users?

  • Collect your directory assets like users, schemas, and tables from your MySQL database.

  • Ability to query your MySQL users, schemas, tables, and much more.

  • Set up custom rules and run custom SQL queries to improve asset visibility.

How does the integration work?

Resmo MySQL Integration collects resources by using our database agent. After you create and integrate and set the configurations as specified in the How to Install section, the database agent starts to operate. Once triggered, it sends requests to our servers, pulling resources inside the database.

Then, we process them on the server. You can use the database agent as a binary or docker image, depending on the installation path you choose. Resmo performs the resource validation with a unique IngestKey. Note: An IngestKey is different for each integration.
