Currently, Domo's MySQL is on version 5.6, which is approaching end of support. There are also a number of commonly used features that people want to use in MySQL, but can't because it is still on version 5.6. Please upgrade to the latest version.

  • This needs to get implemented. MySQL 5.6 is over 8 years old. Even the latest version MySQL 8 is 3 years old.

    This really needs to move forward.. we need to be able to use CTE to optimize queries.

  • Any updates for this?

  • Another significant addition to later versions is the JSON parser! Probably one of the most underrated functions added that would be especially helpful for most of our source datasets coming from connectors that cant flatten nested objects or more importantly, we bring in the data still nested to keep the row count low on each call.
