Import: SQL view as a parameter in DataManager?
  •     carlosmartinmari January 21, 2015 7:04AM

    I'm trying to introduce a parameter, say "Sqlview" that is being used in the DataManager database source block to call a custom SQL view as follows:

    select * from p = {{Sqlview}}

    The problem we have is that when you give the variable type to the parameter and set it as text, in DM the variable is automatically written as:

    select * from "my_table_name"

    which returns an error because it should look like that:

    select * from `my_table_name`

    Introducing the correct symbols doesn't help (parameter enter as "`my_table_name`").

    Is there any way to do that?

    Thank you in advance,

    Could not reproduce this issue, below screenshot shows how parameter is used to extract records from a view, where a text parameter with fixed value is used.

    You can bookmark different tables and views in the Bookmarks tab/DataManager Data panel space, and drag them to the workspace.

    Hi Paola,

    This is what I'm trying to do:


    I don't want to use a parameter to filter the view data, but to call the actual view itself.

    I tried also using the "EXEC({query})" function but visokio wouldn't understand it...

    For now you cannot use the custom SQL mode, but you can use the parameter in the main configuration tab under the "Table selection" option.image
