Replicate from MySQL to PostgreSQL

cuezumo Registered Posts: 8 ✭✭✭✭

Hi everyone,

I just established a connection with a database which uses @MySQL. However, I'd like to convert the tables to @PostgreSQL which is my preferred data processing tool.
Does anybody know whether this is possible within Dataiku?

In general there are lots of available tools:

Maybe pg_chameleon might work with the @Python plug-in?

I appreciate all your suggestions, thanks a lot!

Best, cuezumo

    To best answer your question, could you please add some details on your context:

    - have you set up connections in Dataiku DSS for both PostgreSQL and MySQL?

    - do you want to migrate an existing Dataiku project to PostgreSQL?

    - or do you want to migrate all tables in MySQL to be migrated to PostgreSQL? (and then deprecate MySQL)

    hi Alex,
    thanks for your quick reply!

    To answer your questions:
    - the connections are set up only in MySQL. I'm planning to update the datasets daily via this connection.
    - Yes, I'd like to migrate an existing project to PostgreSQL.
    - No, the original MySQL datasets remain and will be updated on a daily basis. I'd like to run a daily scenario which updates those tables and replicates them to PostgreSQL, if possible.

    thank you very much!

    Thanks for your suggestions, Alex.

    ad change of connection:
    I get an error saying that the action is not supported. I can't choose any connection other than Filesystem and MySQL.

    ad Sync recipe:

    Again, I can only choose from Filesystem and MySQL.

    I'm not sure whether I need to change something in the settings, because I just started using these datasets. The connection was established yesterday. Any further clues what I might be doing wrong?

    Thanks a lot for your efforts!

    Ah, I'm missing a postgreSQL based connection where I can direct the recipe to.
    That should solve it, thanks for your help!
