Executing Queries

This section describes how to execute queries using MySQL remoting from any tool that can connect to MySQL.

When executing queries, you use a two-part name format, as shown below,

[<Schema Name (normally but not always the service name)>].[<Table Name>] 
  • Schema Name is the name of the system schema or user-defined schema.
  • Table Name is the name of the table you are copying data from.

SELECT Statements

To create new records:
SELECT * FROM [Slack].[Channels] WHERE IsPublic = 'True' 
Note that if the data source supports case-sensitive identifiers, it is not possible to query tables of the same name that only vary by upper or lower case-sensitive (ex: Account and ACCOUNT in the same schema). This is because MySQL treats identifiers as case-insensitive, so multiple tables of the same name in a single schema are fundamentally incompatible with the MySQL protocols.


To insert, update, or delete a single row of data (that is, not a batch of records), you need to use the two-part name. For example:
INSERT INTO [Slack].[Channels] (IsPublic) VALUES ('True'); 

Bulk Operations

To perform bulk operations, you can use syntax similar to the following:

You can run a bulk INSERT using a SELECT query in place of a VALUES list.

INSERT INTO [Slack].[Channels] ([IsPublic]) 
SELECT [IsPublic] FROM [Local_Channels] 
You can run a bulk UPATE using a JOIN with a local table.
UPDATE [Slack].[Channels]  
INNER JOIN [Local_Channels] ON [Local_Channels].[Id] = [Slack].[Channels].[Id] 
SET [Slack].[Channels].[IsPublic].[Local_IsPublic] 
You can run a bulk DELETE using the IN filter with sub-SELECT query.
DELETE FROM [Slack].[Channels WHERE [Id] IN (SELECT [Id] FROM Local_Channels) 

Execute Stored Procedures

Use the following to run the stored procedure:
Call CreateJob('Insert')
