Azure Database for MySQL server is still in preview, though we can created database instance on it. I wonder do we have any API to retrieve the databases that we created on Azure Database for MySQL server? API for metrics of those databases? Same questions for Azure Database for PostgreSQL server. Thanks! Screenshot here: https://i.stack.imgur.com/opaFZ.png

API is already available. Documentation is lag behind. We have recorded your requirement, and will publish API documentation on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/ soon. Thanks!

Hi Lin, thanks for replying. Actually I was able to query metrics for Azure DB for MySQL by replacing the resource-id:


When I use java to connect to Azure, I will get an Azure object (com.microsoft.azure.management.Azure). 

We can get all the VM instances by azure.virtualMachines();

I wonder how can we get the Azure DB for MySQL server "instance" or the "database instances" on it?

To get the list of servers in your subscription:

GET /subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/providers/Microsoft.DBforMySQL/servers?api-version=2017-04-30-preview

To get the list of databases in your server:

GET /subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/resourceGroups/{resourceGroupName}/providers/Microsoft.DBforMySQL/servers/{serverName}/databases?api-version=2017-04-30-preview

We'll have the Rest API documentation done soon. Hopefully this week. 

Thanks, Jason
