Get MySQL on latest version

edited February 17 in Ideas Exchange

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?

    Aside from missing windows and JSON functions in MySQL 5.6 there are security flaws to consider. This is pretty sad that we are still stuck on MySQL version 5.6.37-82.2-82.2. While I realize that Magic ETL is all that there are still a lot of people who find the MySQL dataflows to be their preference.

    So I drop my token in the basket to please upgrade MySQL when possible. Hopefully in 2023.
