MySQL CDC connections

You must create a MySQL CDC connection to connect to a stream of change records that PowerExchange captured from the MySQL binary log for one or more MySQL source tables.
The PWX CDC Reader that is on the system where the Secure Agent runs requires the connection information to retrieve MySQL change records from PowerExchange.
You can create a MySQL CDC connection in Administrator or Data Integration, provided that your assigned user role allows this action. Use one of the following methods:
When you configure a connection, you must specify a runtime environment for the connection. The runtime environment must contain a Secure Agent with the status "Up and Running."
After you create a MySQL CDC connection, it becomes available for use within the organization and can be used in multiple mappings.
