Hi @office_use

If you’re not seeing the “MySql.Data.MySqlClient” option when configuring a database connection in UiPath, it could be because the necessary MySQL database driver (connector) is not installed or registered on your machine

  1. Install MySQL Connector/NET:
  • Download and install the MySQL Connector/NET from the official MySQL website. Make sure to download the version that matches your MySQL server version and your UiPath Studio version. You can find the connector here:
  1. Add the MySQL DLL Reference:
  • After installing the MySQL Connector/NET, you may need to manually add a reference to the MySQL DLL in your UiPath project.
  • In UiPath Studio, open your project.
  • In the “Project” panel, right-click on “References” and select “Manage Packages.”
  • In the “Manage Packages” window, search for “MySql.Data” or “MySQL Connector” and install the MySQL connector package. This should add a reference to the “MySql.Data” DLL.
  1. Restart UiPath Studio

  2. Configure Database Connection:

  • In UiPath Studio, go to the “Database” activities and select the “Connect” activity.
  • In the “Connect” activity properties, set the “ProviderName” to “System.Data.OleDb” (this is a generic provider name for database connections) and configure the “ConnectionString” with your MySQL connection details.
  • Test the connection to ensure it’s working correctly.

Here’s a basic example of a UiPath workflow to connect to a MySQL database and execute a SQL query:

  1. Use a “Connect” activity to establish a connection to the MySQL database.
  2. Use an “Execute Query” activity to execute your SQL query.
  3. Process the results or perform other actions based on the query’s results.

Make sure you have the necessary MySQL libraries installed on your system to successfully connect to your MySQL database using UiPath. If you encounter any issues, ensure that your MySQL server is properly configured and accessible from your UiPath environment.
