SQL Expert

Javapackage: com.etendoerp.copilot.dbquerytool


This Assistant is designed to help users read information from the database. It allows users to ask questions in natural language and get the SQL query that retrieves the information they need. The tool uses the DB Query Tool to infer the necessary information to generate the SQL query. The user can ask questions about the database, and the Assistant will determine whether to return a SQL query or execute the query and return the obtained result.


The SQL Expert Assistant is composed of the following components:

  • DBQueryGenerator Tool: This tool allows querying Etendo for available tables in the database and the columns of each table. It also enables the Assistant to execute SQL queries in the database that are generated by the Assistant.

  • DBQueryExec Webhook: This Webhook allows the Assistant to execute SQL queries in the database. The DBQueryGenerator tool sends the SQL query to the Webhook, and the Webhook executes the query in the database and returns the result to the Assistant. This is a secure way to execute SQL queries in the database, as Etendo handles the security of the database connection and query execution.
