MySQL Azure connection

We currently do not have have listed support for MySQL Azure, only Microsoft Azure.

We can only have a connection that doesn’t require an SSL CA file. You’ll need to find a way to ‘Allow Unsecured Connections’. We’ll still connect with an SSL connection from our end but can’t use their certificates.
