[SOLVED] Some Data Source Options Missing


Issue Summary

Hi All, I have installed Redash using the self-hosted, non-docker version and manage to successfully run the server at localhost:5000, as well as create an admin user and everything seems to be working just fine. However, when I try to add a new data source (MySQL to be precise), I notice that the choices I have on the data sources are much lesser than what was shown in the tutorial page (Adding a data source).

What is going on here? Am I missing any crucial steps? Thank you.

Technical details:

  • Redash Version: 6.0.0-beta
  • Browser/OS: Google Chrome and Firefox / CentOS 7
  • How did you install Redash: Self hosted, non docker version.


I have figured out the reason behind this issue is due to the fact that I didn’t perform the following command.

pip install requirements_all_ds.txt

After installing all the required ds packages, re-running the server, I am able to see all the data sources as advertised on the website.
