Add ssh gateway setting to MySQL(Amazon RDS)


#1

Hi,

I was wondering if we could support ssh gateway for MySQL like application such as Sequel Pro do.

My company is using Amazon RDS for db but limiting access. We have to access the db from the gateway.
It might not be a problem after we officially introduce re:dash for our data visualization.
However we are still experimenting with it, so it would be great if we could gain the access directly.

P.S., if nobody’s working on that, I might try to see if I can work on that myself.

Cheers,
Hao

You should think about running autossh on the machine running redash, as mentionned Connect to MySQL & Postgres over SSH Tunnel
Works great and is reliable!
