Connect to MySQL in minutes

Retool connects directly to your MySQL database (via a connection string or regular credentials) and lets you run raw SQL (or issue commands via a GUI) to manage the data in your MySQL tables. For example, you can render users from MySQL into a Table component and add a button that, when clicked, runs an SQL query and marks that user as approved.
