To insert JSON data into a MySQL database, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Create a table with a column of the JSON data type. For example:
1
2
3
4
CREATE TABLE your_table (
  id INT PRIMARY KEY AUTO_INCREMENT,
  json_data JSON
);


  1. Prepare your JSON data to be inserted into the database. Ensure that it follows the correct JSON format.
  2. Use the INSERT statement to insert the JSON data into the table. You can use the JSON_OBJECT function to convert a JSON-formatted string to a JSON object.


For example:

1
INSERT INTO your_table (json_data) VALUES (JSON_OBJECT('key', 'value', 'key2', 'value2'));


  1. If you have multiple JSON objects to insert, you can use the JSON_ARRAY function to create an array of JSON objects and insert them using the INSERT statement.


For example:

1
2
3
4
INSERT INTO your_table (json_data) VALUES (JSON_ARRAY(
  JSON_OBJECT('key', 'value', 'key2', 'value2'),
  JSON_OBJECT('key', 'value3', 'key2', 'value4')
));


Alternatively, you can use any programming language that supports MySQL (such as PHP, Python, etc.) to connect to the database and insert the JSON data using appropriate libraries and APIs.
