    Database Connection Thing

    Hi there, 


    I'm trying to connect to the database, using the database connection thing, however, I happen to be running into certain problems. First I would have this connection string:


    jdbc:mysql://*.compute-1.amazonaws.com:3306/demo?user=thing1&password=password!&allowMultiQueries=true (not an accurate connection string but used for sample purposes).  Then I would save it and open a service it says connection error via service.  So I check the connection I noticed that the changes I made is gone it still shows:  jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/demo?user=root&password=password&allowMultiQueries=true.


    Is there a reason why my connection stream is not working? Is there a reason why the connection is not working and not staying?


    I'm using the MySQL Extension...


    Thank you,

    Kevin Davis

        If you are using the MySQL extension, I would create a Thing based on the MySQL ThingTemplate since it will default in a lot of the information. All you would need to do is to update the Connection String and add the User name and Password (i.e. omit from connection string)
