Run SQL queries from the UI

I have SQL queries with me and I am able to get the results from the back end by logging into the database.

Is there any way to run SQL query from the UI. 

Even the addon Helps. Please Advise.

Thanks in Advance

Bear in mind that this is a horrible thing to do with a Jira database - it's not intended for reporting and even the most simple of questions result in horrid SQL and results you probably won't really understand, and often stuff that will degrade performance.

What would be a better solution for pulling data from the db for reports?    Should the db be mirrored and run the queries on that copy?

(Not a DBA so apologies in advance.  Just starting to learn.)

No, that's almost as horrid, it just prevents you crippling the performance of the Jira server (but also can lead to mismatched/inconsistent reports)

Use the built-in reports, the REST API or apps designed for reporting, please, just forget the database.
