Is it possible to configure a managed MySQL database as a replication slave to an existing MySQL database?
I have an existing MySQL database running on a droplet that is already a slave to databases in the field. Our infrastructure currently depends on slave replication to acquire data.
I’d like to migrate to Managed Databases for simplicity, but it doesn’t look like the doadmin user has the replication admin permissions or the ability to grant replication admin permissions.
Am I missing anything or is it not possible to configure a Managed Database as a replication slave?
