Question

With Managad Mysql Databases, can one have an external mysql as a slave?

We have a local mysql server that we use for etl/reports.

We would like to migrate to a managed db scenario but would like to keep our server as a slave of the managed db. Is this possible?

Hey @eduardodmz,

I believe that as of the time being this is not possible with the managed servers, but this sounds like a great idea, sounds like it’d be super useful!

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.
