MySQL is a very popular open source database and for many years now, devops world encouraged DBAs to use system management system like puppet, chef, ansible to take care of the installation and configuration of their favorite database. This was brilliant ! However all the implementations are not optimal and mostly because there was no easy way to do differently. Since MySQL 8.0, with the help of the MySQL X admin API (and other improvements), it's now much easier and safer to manage MySQL via a configuration management system.

During this session, I won't tell which configuration management system to use neither which module bit I will explain what are the errors to not perform again and why. I will also show you how to use the MySQL X Admin API in your recipes.
