Window functions missing from MySQL

Hi, 

 

I'm trying to use SQL windowing functions with DOMO data flows, but they are not recognized. After checking for the version of MySQL, I saw that DOMO is still using an old version of MySQL: 5.6.28-76.1-56.

 

Window functions make time based analytics much easier and would be great to have for serious analytics. Now I need to either move the whole analytics pipeline to BigQuery or write complex joins. Are there plans to update MySQL to version 8.0.X ?

 

Thanks,

Henrik Petander

    I agree that it would be nice to have this ability in MySQL data flows.  However, you can use window functions in redshift:1.png

    Domo hass implemented the window and rank functions in Magic ETL.  This is another option if you prefer not to use redshift.

  • Thank you, it's good to learn the alternative ways to solve the problem in DOMO.
