Today we're excited to announce the availability of in-app SQL querying in the latest versions of MergeStat! 🎉
One of the more significant pain points noted by our early adopters has been the need for external tools to access the data MergeStat provides, even for simple, one-off queries. Many users (ourselves included) lean on existing data products such as Grafana, Metabase and Superset to consume MergeStat data (in dashboards, alerts and reports).
With the addition of our query interface (in the
Queries tab of our management console), MergeStat users can now execute SQL directly in our app.
Query results can be copied or downloaded as CSV or JSON, for quick use in other tools and contexts. We believe this is a significant step-forward in our app's functionality, and will continue to invest in this area of our management console. Keep a lookout for additional features, including:
- Saved and examples queries
- Inline schema documentation and editor auto-completions
- Basic charting and data visualization
- Query execution history
It's important to note that as always, the MergeStat PostgreSQL database can be connected directly to by BI tools, desktop SQL clients, or SQL drivers.
