    Tableau - MySQL 8.0 Migration

    Radu Maftei

      Hello Community,


      I am migrating  MySQL databases from 5.xx to 8.0.


      My question is if someone has encountered any issues after the migration of the MySQL version in Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server, versions: 2018.xx > .


      Thank you!

          Hello Radu,


          I suggest utilizing the latest version of Tableau with the most recent driver for MySQL and then following the setup instructions here:  MySQL - Tableau


          Please note that you could utilize the converted MySQL 8.0 version with Tableau and compare the functionality between the old and new data source databases.  They should be equal but remember that the latest 8.0x driver does not work equally with the version 5 of MySQL per the driver site so be sure to test with the right driver for each version. 


          I hope this helps.
