- Services: MySQL HeatWave
- Release Date: May 31, 2023
You can now authenticate to MySQL databases in OCI MySQL HeatWave service using OCI IAM Security Tokens generated through the OCI CLI and a web browser. Using the MySQL authentication_oci plugin, a MySQL instance can validate a connecting user via the IAM Security Token, which you generate using the same credentials you use to sign in to the OCI Console. This feature also extends the usage of the MySQL authentication_oci plugin to leverage OCI IAM federated users to integrate with external identity providers, such as LDAP and Active Directory.
