Does beast-mode support functions like md5 or any alternative?

    We need some unguessable verification-key, for deeplinking back to our plaform.

    We did that by concat some fields and md5 it, but that does not work in beast mode.

     

    the MYSQL dataflow will take too long to run on each dataset update. 

     

    im now looking into storing a random verification-key in our db and include that in the ETL,

     

    but im open for suggestion might you have it!

    Hi,

     

    I don't believe either of those fuctions are valid in the beastmode syntax.

    You can however use both MD5 and SHA1 in a MySQL Dataflow.

     

    Additionally, it is possible to encrypt data when importing via workbench - if this was your goal.

    Thanks,

    Jamie.

    can you concat / process the data as you push it into Domo?  I.e. apply the MD5 processing during ingestion instead of trying to display in Analyzer / in ETL?

    Thanks for your suggestion! we gonna store it with our own data-store and ship it with the ETL.
