Published date: March 31, 2021

Azure Database for MySQL Flexible Server now provides an improved developer experience for connecting you to the server using Azure CLI with the “az mysql flexible- server connect” command. 
The 'connect' uses a custom azure cli extension “rdbms-connect” that can not only help validate and test your server connection from your client machine, but it can also run queries. This command can also be used to run a quick single query with the “—querytext” argument, or in the interactive mode with the “—interactive” argument to run multiple queries for working with Postgres database server.
