MySQL Workbench Manual  /  Database Migration Wizard

Chapter 10 Database Migration Wizard

MySQL Workbench provides the ability to migrate ODBC-compliant databases to MySQL.

  • Convert (migrate) different database types, including MySQL, across servers.

  • Convert tables and copy data, but will not convert stored procedures, views, or triggers.

  • Allows customization and editing during the migration process.

  • Works on Linux, macOS, and Microsoft Windows.

This is not an exhaustive list. The following sections discuss these and additional migration capabilities.

Setup may be the most challenging aspect of using the MySQL Workbench Migration Wizard. There is the installation section, which describes setting up ODBC requirements for Linux, macOS, and Microsoft Windows, and the Database Product Specific Notes section that references setup conditions for each RDBMS.
