Just wondering if Yellowfin works with Amazon Arora, which is based of MySQL.

Info on Arora can be found here:

Yes, Yellowfin can connect to and run off Amazon Arora, you just connect as you would connect to MySQL with the MySQL driver.

One thing to note though, even though the DB itself can be quite fast, your connection to the instance can be slow, so please take that into consideration, this really is the same for all cloud based services.

The only real requirements are ;


  • You know the connection details
  • The Arora instance is publically accessible.


In the screenshot below, you will see the DB URL path, the publically accessible flag, and the DB master user.

Here is how the URL would look in the web.xml (if running YF off Arora)

Here is what the connection details for the data source would look like.
