MySQL Resources

Additional Tools for MySQL Managed Databases

The DigitalOcean API

By sending requests to the API’s /v2/databases endpoint, you can list, create, or delete database clusters as well as scale the size of a cluster, add or remove read-only replicas, and manage other configuration details.

See the API documentation on databases for more information.

The DigitalOcean Command Line Client, doctl

doctl supports many of the same actions as the API: you can list, create, resize, and delete database clusters, manage database pools, replicas, and users, and more.

Use doctl databases help for more information.
