Known issues / Roadmap

  • Some words are prohibited and can't be used is the query in anyways, even in a select query: - delete - drop - insert - alter - truncate - execute - create - update

See sql_request_abstract module to fix this issue.

  • checking SQL request by execution and rollback is disabled in this module since variables features has been introduced. This can be fixed by overloading _prepare_request_check_execution() function.
  • Move modules sql_request_abstract and sql_export to oca/reporting-engine
