How do you access an API endpoint and add this as a MySQL data source for Grafana?

I’m new to Grafana, and I don’t know how to access an API endpoint and add it as a MySQL data source. I looked at the documentation for the MySQL data source, it said I can use API for MySQL data source, but I have to use provisioning. I don’t understand the instructions for that either. Please help a student in need.

Hi @alexandreifajardo10

Are you currently using a MySQL database, and is that database currently storing data? If so, do you have access to that database?

Or are you trying to create a mysql database in addition to connecting it to grafana?
