Allow SQL across connections for visual recipes

When building a visual recipe, it would speed up the jobs if there was the possibility to allow "SQL across connections" (Inputs and outputs datasets reside on different connections), just like it is possible for SQL recipes.

Thanks!

@Emiel_Veersma Hi Emiel, 

This is something that can be very difficult to implement depending on the underlying database you target. Do you have a database in mind (Snowflake, BigQuery, Synapse, PostgreSQL, other)?

Hi @apichery ,

Our underlying system is MSSQL (although I guess it would work for all SQL connections). When I use the "Allow SQL across connections"-feature in SQL, I go to the query and add the database and schema of the tables. I thought that by adding the database and schema to the advanced tab in a view, you could allow SQL across connections.
