| variable_name  | variable_value |
| mysql-have_ssl | 1              |

How to configure ProxySQL to throw error when connections are not encrypted ?

Hi Preethi, you need to do that on a per-user basis. Update the mysql_users table to feature use_ssl=1 for all users.

Enabling use_ssl in mysql_users not for back-end connections ?
Would like to know about making SSL mandatory for frontend connections.

mysql_users is for frontend. For backend connections SSL is controlled by the mysql_Servers table.
