Steps to Reproduce

2. Create a report definition for that class.

Root Cause

A third-party product issue MySQL server cannot run a sql with Double quotes around the base table name alias,
example : Select "pc0".column1 from base table "pc0";

Instead of using a report definition use a Connect SQL external query to the database and use this Connect SQL rule as part of the activity which in turn will be the data page's source.
