Connecting to the MySQL server

To connect to any of your nodes whether a master or a secondary node, retrieve the connection string of the instance from the Task manager by clicking on MSDB Actions > Connection string.

NodeChef uses the below format for the database connection string.

mysql://[DatabaseRoleName]:[DatabaseRolePassword]@[HostName]:[Port]/[Database Name]
