Variables now available in beta

We've been working hard for the past few months to bring you a highly requested feature: the ability to add variables to your queries. And today, we're thrilled to announce that variables are now available to everyone in beta!

So, what exactly are variables? They're your secret weapon for dynamic query customization. With variables, you can easily replace values in your queries using interactive widgets. To get started, simply open the Execution panel on the left side of your notebook, create a variable, and embed it in your SQL code by typing [.c-code]{{variable_name}}[.c-code] in a query.

We offer variables in four types: [.c-code]boolean[.c-code], [.c-code]number[.c-code], [.c-code]string[.c-code], and [.c-code]lists[.c-code] (with single or multiple selections). The best part? List variables can be populated not only from a static list of values provided by you, but also from the results of a local table!

With this update, we're excited to make our notebooks more powerful than ever for data analysts. We'd love to hear your thoughts on this new feature and learn about your specific use cases!

Other new features

  • Users management: Admins can now suspend users from the settings of the app. Suspended users will no longer have access to the workspace and won't be able to register back to the workspace.


  • Execution: While executing one or several queries, the status of the execution is now displayed in the left tabs.
  • Documentation panel: It is now possible to keep the documentation panel open without the Data Explorer.
  • Queries panel: Clicking on a query with error in the Queries panel now scrolls to the query instead of opening the documentation panel.
  • Table of contents: Improved design of table of contents in the notebook body.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed resized result table not filling all available space when in fullscreen.
  • Fixed erroneous "notebook has been migrated" error in some cases.
  • Fixed local tables without title, or with invalid one, being listed in autocomplete.
  • Fixed SQL analyzer running too often, prevent it from lasting forever and using too much CPU.

Query History (beta)

This version brings a brand new — and exciting! — feature in beta 🚀 : Query History. With this feature, you can search all queries of notebooks previously published by you and your team. The goal is to be able to write new queries faster, and to spread knowledge more easily among analysts — and anyone writing SQL queries.

Note: this feature isn't enabled by default for now. To enable for your account, go to Settings Profile Features preview and toggle on Query History (beta).

A new panel will then be available in your notebook screen, on the left hand side, that allows you to search previous queries, and filter them based on their author or used tables.

New features

  • New keyboard shortcuts: easily open and close the left and right panels in your notebook using [.c-key]⌥[.c-key] + [.c-key]1[.c-key]/[.c-key]2[.c-key]/[.c-key]8[.c-key]/[.c-key]9[.c-key]/[.c-key]0[.c-key] ([.c-key]alt[.c-key] + [.c-key]1[.c-key]/[.c-key]2[.c-key]/[.c-key]8[.c-key]/[.c-key]9[.c-key]/[.c-key]0[.c-key] on PC).
  • View executed SQL: When you reference local tables in a SQL query, Husprey injects them into that SQL code before sending it to your data warehouse. You can now have a look at that SQL, right from your query's run submenu.


  • Data Explorer: The Documentation panel is now integrated in the Data Explorer tab. They are now mutually exclusive with the Query History panel.
  • SQL full screen modals: Redesigned SQL modals to better support all cases (dbt model, local tables, executed SQL, etc.)
  • Notebook Editor: Added new text shortcuts to format blocks in our document editor ([.c-key]/h1[.c-key], ..., [.c-key]/text[.c-key]).
  • Postgres: Postgres materialized views are now handled in data source sync. "table type" was added in Documentation and view SQL definition is now fetched.
  • Postgres: Associatearray fields in postgres results to the underlying element type (and hence better handle arrays of JSONs).
  • Query Editor: Autoformat multiline SQL comments (the ones that start with /**).
  • Query Editor: Navigate from/to the query handle with arrow keys.
  • Query Editor: Untitled queries now always show "untitled_query" as handle.
  • dbt: Improved performance of dbt artifacts ingestion.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed SQL compilation issue in some cases.
