The MySQL driver depends on pymysql and can be installed with:

pip install "sayn[mysql]"

SAYN will consider the following parameters to construct the sqlalchemy url:

Parameter Description Default
host Host name or public IP of the server Required
port Connection port 3306
user User name used to connect Required
password Password for that user Required
database Database in use upon connection Required

Other parameters specified will be passed on to sqlalchemy.create_engine when creating the engine.


    type: mysql
    port: 3306
    user: mysql_user
    password: 'Pas$w0rd' #use quotes to avoid conflict with special characters
    database: models

Check the sqlalchemy mysql-connector dialect for extra parameters.
