Connecting to mysql database

Hi guys.

I want to start with Qlik sense desktop to test its features. My data source is mysql running on centos 7 linux server. In order to connect to this database, I selected MySql Enterprice Edition in the first step pf the "Add data" process. I filled out the form with correct info (I checked host, username and password) to connect to database. But it gives error message with description: general error! How can I gain more info about the error to see the connection problem? How can I resolve the problem? Any help will be appreciated.

Have you tested the connection from the ODBC Manager in Windows and succesfully connected there?

You can install the MySQL odbc connector and then  you can create a system (or user) DSN connection in windows ODBC manager. Just make sure to configure correctly either 32 o 64 bit depending on your needs,
