Alteryx dyamic input equivalent in Talend

I am looking for some equivalent of 'dynamic input' tool in Talend. This tool allows the user to read from an input database at runtime and dynamically choose what records to read in. It does not input the entire database table content, instead it filters the data and only returns the user specified criteria and joins it to the data coming into the tool.

 

following link is a short introduction of the tool: https://vimeo.com/165192456

 

Any help on this?

Hello, So far, talend has "dynamic schema" feature , which allows you to design schema with an unknown column structure (unknown name and number of columns). Best regards Sabrina

Even though Talend claims that it supports dynamic schema, we tried using it for pushing data with unknown name and number of columns into MongoDB and it just doesn't work. Would really love to know who has succeeded in implementing this feature

Hello,

For now, dynamic schema feature will not be available in tMongoDBInput component.

We have a new feature jira issue on talend bug tracker:https://jira.talendforge.org/browse/TBD-3134 about "Support dynamic schema in tMongoDBInput".

Best regards

Sabrina
