Custom query using MariaDB ODBC connector

Hi All,

 

I switched from MySQL connecto to MariaDB connector on POwer Bi Desktop.

Using the MySQL connector I was able to select "Advanced Oprions" and insert a SQL Statement for custom query.

Now it seems using the new MariaDB Connector is not possibile to run a custom query:

I selected DirectQuery but nothing...

Do you know if there is a way to run a custom MariaDB query?

 

Thank you in advance!

Hi @lucmel,

I'd like to suggest you use the basic odbc connector to get data, you can use this data connector with MariaDB connection string and the custom query:

Power Query ODBC connector - Power Query | Microsoft Docs

Creating a Data Source with MariaDB Connector/ODBC - MariaDB Knowledge Base

Hi @v-shex-msft 

 

But does that mean you can't have a direct query anymore? Because i'm looking for a directquery mode, where i can still use a custom SQL statement

Best regards,

@lucmel I never used MarioDB and unfortunately have no idea, I hope someone else can help.

Understood. 

So,  do you know any version of the MariaDB connector for PowerBI that allows you to insert custom queries?

@lucmel Custom query option is based on the connector you are using and not all the connectors have this option, and seems like this case for the MariaDB.
