UI Bakery allows you to easily connect to a MySQL database with no need for additional layers (APIs or 3rd-party services).
If your database is hosted behind the Firewall, add the following IP address to the Firewall whitelist:
Go to the Data sources page –> Connect –> Choose MySQL. Enter your credentials and click Test connection.
Adding MySQL as a Data source
If the connection is successful, click Connect Data source. UI Bakery will extract the database structure and store column types. This data will be used to suggest the proper table columns and form field types.
If you need to be able to override the default data source database with a custom value in an action, you can enable the setting Allow override database name in action:

In case a database is not specified, the default data source database will be used.
Once you have the connection between UI Bakery and MySQL, you can access its data, i.e. load and send it back. The below action types are supported:
