Variables in Datacenter

The datacenter currently has accounts,dasets,dataflows.

There should be another entity, Variables:

  1. Variables would be global to the instance.
  2. Variables would be accessible through accounts using some sort of syntax; for example one can make the IP for an account a variable.
  3. Variables could be accessible through datasets; for example one can include {{variable_name}} inside a query (or some other syntax) and embed the variable inside the SQL.
  4. Variable could be accessible through ETL flows; for example one can include {{variable_name}} inside a query (or some other syntax) and embed the variable inside the SQL. 
  5. Variabels could have different datatypes; integer, decimal, string.
  6. You should be able to modify variables via the API.

This feature would make all Domo's ETL functionaly much more powerful.

Most of the ETL tools today have similar functionality.
