Connecting to an AWS Aurora Db


I am trying to connect to an AWS Aurora DB, which is Mysql compatible, and so should seemingly be able to connect using the Mysql configuration. When I provide the credentials to access this database, though, I’m just getting a timeout error. Is there no way to support Aurora at this point? Or is there some kind of clever work around that I can take advantage of?

Auroa should work.

If you’re getting a timeout, sounds like an issue with network or security group config. Can you verify that you can access that DB from the same ip you’re running Metabase on?

Wow you were absolutely right - thanks so much!
