Use a MariaDB database for synthetic data

MOSTLY AI can use a MariaDB database as a source for original data as well as a destination to deliver synthetic data. To do so, you need to create MariaDB connectors.

For each MariaDB data source or destination, you need a separate connector.


Obtain the MariaDB connection details.

  • host
  • port
  • credentials

If you use the web application, create a new Oracle connector from the Connectors page.


  1. From the Connectors page, click New connector. Click Create connector button
  2. From the Create a new connector window, select MariaDB. Select MariaDB connector
  3. From the New connector page, configure the connector.
    1. For Name, enter a name that you can distinguish from other connectors.
    2. For Access type, select whether you want to use the connector as a source or destination.
    3. For Host, enter the MariaDB database hostname.
    4. For Port, enter the database port.

      The default port for MariaDB databases is 3306.

    5. For Username and Password, enter your MariaDB database credentials. Configure MariaDB connector
  4. Click Save to save your new MariaDB connector.

    MOSTLY AI tests the connection. If you see an error, check the connection details, update them, and click Save again.

    You can click Save anyway to save the connector disregarding any errors.

Depending on whether you created a source or a destination connector, you can use the connector as:
