21.16.108. salt.modules.mysql

Module to provide MySQL compatibility to salt.

depends:
  • MySQLdb Python module

Note

On CentOS 5 (and possibly RHEL 5) both MySQL-python and python26-mysqldb need to be installed.

configuration:

In order to connect to MySQL, certain configuration is required in /etc/salt/minion on the relevant minions. Some sample configs might look like:

mysql.host: 'localhost'
mysql.port: 3306
mysql.user: 'root'
mysql.pass: ''
mysql.db: 'mysql'
mysql.unix_socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock'
mysql.charset: 'utf8'

You can also use a defaults file:

mysql.default_file: '/etc/mysql/debian.cnf'

Changed in version 2014.1.0: (Hydrogen) charset connection argument added. This is a MySQL charset, not a python one

Changed in version 0.16.2: Connection arguments from the minion config file can be overridden on the CLI by using the arguments defined here. Additionally, it is now possible to setup a user with no password.

Parameters:
  • identifier -- the table, column or database identifier
  • for_grants -- is False by default, when using database names on grant queries you should set it to True to also escape "_" and "%" characters as requested by MySQL. Note that theses characters should only be escaped when requesting grants on the database level (my_%db.*) but not for table level grants (my_%db.`foo`)
