MySQL sources in synchronization tasks

When you configure a synchronization task to use a MySQL source, you can read data from a single object, multiple related objects, or a saved query. To read data from multiple sources, you must define relationships based on key columns or create a user-defined join condition. To optimize performance, you can configure a filter in the Data Filters tab.
You can also create a data filter, where you can select an object, field, operator, and enter a filter value based on which the synchronization task runs. You can also configure an advanced filter to define a more complex filter condition, which can include multiple conditions using the AND or OR logical operators.
The following table describes the MySQL source properties:
Name of the active source connection.
Source Type
Type of the source object available. You can choose from the following source types:
  • - Single
  • - Multiple
  • - Saved query
Source Object
