SQL Transport Security Dropped in v5.3 ??????

  • Hi,

    I stumbled across someone having issues connecting to an Azure MySQL database using SSL with Qt 5.13.

    I did some digging and found in patchset 11 of the 5.3 release, qsql_mysql.cpp had been changed to replace transport security with client certificates. This can't have been the intention, can it? Surely, client certificates should have been an extension to the functionality, not a replacement?

    As it stands the Qt library has no support for MySQL servers having SSL enabled without the use of client certificates. Not sure if this is right area of the forum to post to...perhaps a moderator could relocate it if not.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Since it's in the lower levels, I'd recommend bringing this question to the interest mailing list. You'll find there Qt developers/maintainers. This forum is more user oriented.
