PlaySQL spreadsheets across spaces

Hi ,

I am planning to use play SQL spreadsheets across spaces. Is it possible ? any workarounds ?

Hi Tamilselvan,

Yes it is possible:

  • Either within a SQL query, you can use SPACE_thekey (for example if the space key is "ds", then the name is SPACE_DS),
  • Either you can put the macro on a page of that space, then copy-paste it to another space. There's a little attribute (named 'context') on the macro which tells which space it originated from.

Concerning permissions, the first method will let you see data from other spaces (unless you have defined different PostgreSQL users for each space), whereas the second method will only work if the view has view permissions for the space.

Hope it helps,

Adrien

 

Thx a lot !!! I tried the second one. Worked seemlessly. Another Query here. Sorry for being very basic. I hv a spreadsheet common to all spaces. I don't want users to view the data, just enter their own data. Is it possible ?

No. That would be called per-row permissions and it's very appealing to implement it, but it's not on the roadmap for the forseeable future.

Hi Adrien, I copied a query from one space to another. But built-in parameters are getting fetched from the original space :( For eg. $spaceKey still refers to the original space. I am trying to query based on a built-in parameter in all the spaces. Please help.

That's correct, the $spaceKey will be the one of the original space... You may have to prompt the user instead.
