MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual Including MySQL NDB Cluster 8.0

20.5.2 Disabling X Plugin

The X Plugin can be disabled at startup by either setting mysqlx=0 in your MySQL configuration file, or by passing in either --mysqlx=0 or --skip-mysqlx when starting the MySQL server.

Alternatively, use the -DWITH_MYSQLX=OFF CMake option to compile MySQL Server without X Plugin.
