TIMESCALE.EXPORT

star This is a Streamsheets Enterprise feature.

Performs an EXPORT query on your Timescale database. This query works exactly like the queries from TIMESCALE.SELECT, but exports the result into a file. This file can be accessed in the side menu of your App under "App Files".

info

As of right now, the timescale functions work with the internal timescaledb. Leave the Stream parameter empty and the connection automatically is set up. We are working on allowing further timescale connections.
