How to enable MyISAM for MySQL managed database.

I am trying to set up an application of mine using the new managed database, but when setting it up I get: - DBD::mysql::st execute failed: Storage engine MyISAM is disabled

I was wondering is there a way to enable MyISAM?

Hi,

Currently, with our managed database offering the storage engine for MySQL cannot be changed from innoDB to MyISAM.  You can know more about it at:
