We're having the issue described below with Acumatica and cannot find a solution. We have an open ticket and Acumatica support has been sporadically working on it for several weeks now but no answer. They can't reproduce it and so have done a screen share to look at it on my machine, but to no avail. Posting here in hopes that someone can help

Update: Don't try MySQL 8.0+ Stick with 5.7. It works great.

We've downgraded and the issue went away
