This image is designed to supersede the legacy CircleCI MySQL image, circleci/mysql.

cimg/mysql is a Docker image created by CircleCI with continuous integration builds in mind.

Getting Started

This image can be used with the CircleCI docker executor as a secondary image. For example:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 jobs: build: docker: - image: cimg/go:1.17 - image: cimg/mysql:8.0 steps: - checkout

In the above example, the CircleCI Go Docker image is used for the primary container while the MySQL image is used as a secondary. More specifically, the tag 8.0 is used meaning the version of MySQL will be v8.0. You can now connect to a MySQL instance from the primary image within the steps for this job.

How This Image Works

This image contains the MySQL database and its complete toolchain.

Tagging Scheme

This image has the following tagging scheme:


<mysql-version> - The version of Mysql to use.
