Filling database tables directly (INSERT INTO)

System Information
  • Strapi Version: latest
  • Operating System: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • Database: MariaDB / MySQL

Hi, being new to and this forum.

My question is:

May we fill in data directly into strapi managed tables via mysql INSERT INTO TABLE commands?

I have tested that and it worked properly but I am unsure about any side effects.

It is a table which will be filled by IoT devices. We have already implemented that piece of software for filling existing tables on other databases as well.

There will be no other create or update or delete actions from anywhere else like strapi admin etc.

Thanks for a feedback and guidiance
