MySQL data transfer to MSSQL

Good morning,

Again im here for help!
What Im trying to achieve:
Task is to import all MySQL entries into MSSQL server.
Whenever user fills php form these data must be sent to MySQL and MSSQL.

Where Im stucked now:
I dont know how to push these values (for example payload[0].id ) into MSSQL, and what should be written into function node.
Injection node msg.topic: SELECT * FROM input_data ORDER BY id DESC LIMIT 1;


Is it even possible to make this thing automatic? Something like watchdog for MySQL DB?

Every help will be appreciated! Thanks!

Now when i select INJECT, it sends data successfully, but i need to find solution for scenario: if only new ID is created, only then push data into MSSQL. Hope for some ideas! Thanks!

If you have an Identity column (hopefully you do :wink: )

You can use IF NOT EXISTS

IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT ID FROM input_data WHERE ID = payload[0].id) INSERT INTO ...

maybe you can use that approach

I would also encourage the use of template here - makes the SQL a lot easier to deal with.
using brackets to fill in the place holders {{some.object.path}}

Marcus, thanks mate!! Ill
I can see, that youre good at this. May i ask another question?
How can i import all entries which are located in mysql till today? when i try to inject SELECT * FROM input_data ORDER BY id DESC LIMIT 1000 ; it only returns 1 entry instead of 1000.
I need to transfer existing data to MSSQL at first, and then i should implement IF NOT EXISTS .

Thanks mate for reaching your hand in this issue, as im very green in node-red exploration.

I can see, that you're good at this

Lets not jump ahead of our self :wink:

I don't do MySQL and I am unfamiliar with LIMIT.
in MsSQL the equivalent is:
SELECT TOP 1000 * FROM input_data order by id DESC

I am not sure of the output from the MySQL node - so a little blind here,
but can you instead employ a where clause WHERE date < today?

When I insert WHERE date < today in MySql injector, syntax is incorrect.

SELECT * FROM input_data WHERE date < today

Maybe only soltuion is to reverse asking in this case, when MSSQL should ask MySQL for all entries?

Or inject node should contain i++ variable?

That should work. Are you sure it only returns one record? Have you got a debug node directly on the output of the Mysql node?
What happens if you take off the limit and the order by?

Thanks for idea, but yes, one inject returs only one msg.payload , which contains one Mysql entry

Maybe my node config is really messed up

As @Colin highlights - it really should work.

but on this
WHERE date < today

today should be todays date (or the MySQL date function) MsSQL is getDate()

Whats this doing?


Is it filtering to the last row :laughing: - hence you wont get an array?

Flow which Im @ right now

just checking if message is reaching debugger...

I (think) I see the problem,

you are only passing row 0

msg.payload = {
 id: msg.payload[0].id, 
 kritusie_putni: msg.payload[0].kritusie_putni, 
 izbr_putni: msg.payload[0].izbr_putni, 
return msg;

the result is an array (not a message per row)
here you are only using row 0 from that array

Put a split node after the MySQL.

then for each msg the split churns out

msg.payload = {
 kritusie_putni: msg.payload.kritusie_putni, 
return msg;

MARCUS!! YOU DID IT! You found glitch in my nodes!
Now MySQL limit counter is being pushed in MSSQL! If limit is 5 , 5 new entries are pushed into MSSQL!
Ok, now I have to figure it out, how to push only unique ID(latest). And after that i can use timer, for example 1x5min to check MySQL if there is new ID.

Put a template node directly after the split.

Then your MsSQL after the template.

Use this as your template.

IF NOT EXISTS (SELECT id FROM input_data WHERE id = '{{}}')
INSERT INTO input_data (id, other_col, other_col)
VALUES ('{{}}','{{payload.other_col}}','{{payload.other_col}}')

Disclaimer: there may be other ways, and this may have errors - but this gives you some control

Now im getting all fields as NULL

capture one of the commands in the debug - and run it within SMS as a new query.

Im sorry Marcus, but i dont understand what you mean by SMS.
Here is debug node in each step.
Sorry for my incompetence.
