Known limitations

  • When you run a DQ job with a SQL query that attempts to perform a WHERE on a date column, the job fails. For example, select * from "@admin"."myspace" WHERE registration_dttm = '2016-02-03T07:55:29'. There is currently no known workaround for this limitation.
  • When you run a DQ job with a SQL query that does not contain an explicit WHERE clause, the job fails with an exception message that the command line does not contain a -rd. A workaround for this limitation is to add WHERE 1=1 to the query.
  • When you run a DQ job with a query that contains both a WHERE and LIMIT clause, the SQL preview returns all records and ignores both filters.
