    Support for up to five read-only replicas within the same region is now in public preview. This feature is aimed to scale out read-heavy workloads.

    Check out the documentation to learn more about replicas:
    - Overview: docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/concep..
    - How to create replicas from the portal: docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/howto-..

    Azure CLI support will be following shortly.

    Thanks,

  2. Ability to set up read-only replicas

    I'm creating this as a separate issue because from other replica requests because the different regions wouldn't be a major concern for us. We would just like to have the ability to create a read only replica, even if it was in the same region.

    wait_timeout and table_open_cache are now available to be changed in the service.

    To learn how to change the parameter values, view the docs:
    - Using the Azure portal: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/howto-server-parameters
    - Using the Azure CLI: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/howto-configure-server-parameters-using-cli

  4. Allow editing Parameters from ARM templates.

    It would be nice to be able to modify the server parameters while deploying with the ARM templates.

    We are currently working publishing some updated ARM templates in our sample GitHub repository to show how to change the parameter values from ARM. In the meantime, you can do something like the below:

    “resources”: [
    {
    “type”: “configurations”,
    “name”: “div_precision_increment”,
    “apiVersion”: “2017-12-01″,
    “location”: “centralus”,
    “properties”: {
    “value”: “6″,
    “source”: “user-override”
    }
    }
    ]

  5. Allow upgrading of the pricing tier

    It would be great if I could switch pricing tiers of Azure Database for MySQL Basic -> General Purpose -> Memory Optimized. I'd much prefer to start on a less expensive tier and as usage increases move to higher pricing tiers like other Azure services.
