@conradwt thanks for your reply. I’m using an external database.

@Ayobami One can define the database user by using the MYSQL_USER environment variable within your Kubernetes deployment resource file. BTW, you can lookup all the environment variables for the MySQL image by going here. For additional details regarding the overall setup, I recommend reading Run a Single-Instance Stateful Application. Good luck and all the best.

Think different and code well,
