Windows Azure provides the MySQL database but unfortunately we do not have any portal feature to work with the MySQL database associated with the Windows Azure WebSite. There is always a way,

Let’s assume I have created a WebSite which has MySQL. For example I have created the website from gallery and selected the WordPress which comes with MySQL database. So I will have a MySQL database with it and I can read the connection string from the portal.

And the connection string would look like something

Database=wrijuwpA55ISymtc;Data Source=us-cdbr-azure-northcentral-a.cleardb.com;User Id=UserName;Password=*******

After I have it I can use any MySQL management tool to connect my database to it. I have tested it with MySQL Workbench.

Then you are ready to work with your MySQL Database and manage through this tool.
