    Looking for some help with creating an SSIS connection manager to a MySQL database.  I have tried the following with no luck:

    The error message is:

    Test connection failed because of an error in initializing provider. Authentication to host '' for user '' using method 'caching_sha2_password' failed with message: Access denied for user using password: NO

    My setup is:

    Windows 10x64

    Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2017


    MySQL for Visual Studio   1.2.8

    SQL Server Data Tools   15.1.61903.01040

    Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services Designer

    Version 15.0.1100.123

    MySQL connector/Net 8.0.16

    MySQL Community Server 8.0.16

    You could try out our Premium ADO.NET component to connect to your MySQL database. It is a commercial software, but we offer free developer license which you can use interactively within Visual Studio (otherwise referenced as SSDT). In addition to the out-of-box db connection capabilities, we offer many advanced features. Check out the following link for more details.

    I've always used the MySQL ODBC drivers to connect to MySQL from SSIS.

    Just remember that if you use a 32 bit driver you need to run a 32 bit SSIS executable.
