New Jinja Macros

  • The Jinja dataset macro allows users to reference both virtual and physical datasets, as well as their attached calculated columns and metrics. For example:

    SELECT * FROM {{ dataset(42, include_metrics=True, groupby=["ds", "category"]) }} LIMIT 10

  • The where_in filter provides for a better experience defining multiple values. For example, in a WHERE clause:

    SELECT * FROM some_table


    action IN {{ filter_values('action_type')|where_in }}
