Dataflow: Ability to write SQL within a ETL-Dataflow

ETL dataflows are very user friendly and great to work with in some cases but, sometimes I have found the need to be able to drag and drop a control that would allow me to write a piece of MySQL code to do a more complex transformation.  Since it is not an available option I have had gotten to use either ETL or MySQL.


I like how easy it is in ETL to drag and drop a control and after few clicks selecting what you need, the job is done and it came to my mind that if there was an option to write MySQL , the ETL dataflow would be way more powerful.

Domo Arigato!

    @DaniBoy or @mattchandler, is there another thread out there for this great and much anticipated idea?  It's been in the hopper for a while.

    Thank you for submitting this @Godiepi. I am assigning to our product manager @StevenC to review and comment.

  • @Godiepi fantastic idea!!!  We are currently working to improve Magic ETL, and this definetly is something that we are considering (among other things as well :)). Having a more-powerful and easy to use Magic ETL is a high priority for us, so please keep watching for imporvements and submitting your ideas and suggestions.  


  • yes, please!

    this would be amazing!

  • Noticed this thread hasn't been updated in a while.


    New to Domo, but I feel this would be amazing.

    Pretty new to regex expressions and not quite super comfortable with them yet, but I can get the job done.

    However, instead of writing regex, being able to use built in SQL functions or code would be great!
