Database connection

Hi everyone,

Can somebody help me in connecting my sql database to uipath. i hvae gone through the forum buit i am not able to understand how it can be connected.
Only information which i gathered from internet for mysql is the connection string
i dont know what is myserver address and how can i find it.
Can somebody help me please.

you can connect sql with two ways

  1. Using windows authentication in this case you should know sql server name and name of Database (from which you are trying pull data)
  2. Using SQL authentication where you need sql server username and password, sql server name.

my preference is using windows authentication …! :slight_smile:

You must disconnect the database once your task done with db…I hope you are following same.

Do we need to have SQL db interface to be installed in our machine for executing this activity?

I am not getting the server name in the dropdown so what should I do, and how to find the server name in mysql workbench. Any help would be appreciated.


You will only be able to see a server/list of servers in drop-down to the one’s which you would be having access to, if not you will not be able to see the server names in drop-down


Can u elaborate the techniques to see server name in drop down
