We open EAP for DataGrip 2018.1

Yes, it has finally happened! 🙂 We hope that in the next month you’ll use our early builds and share your feedback with us. As usual, our issue tracker, twitter and forum are open for you.

Let’s have a look at the goodies inside this EAP.

Data editor SQL log

Now, while updating data you can see which particular queries DataGrip is running. We have nothing to hide!


Connectivity and introspection

Now you can tell DataGrip how to switch schemas. The following settings are available:

Automatic: DataGrip can switch schemas during internal operations when defining the context. This is the default behavior for all databases except PostgreSQL.
Manual: DataGrip cannot switch schemas during internal operations when defining the context. However, you can switch them manually via the switcher in the top-right corner. This is the default behavior for PostgreSQL: if you work with pg_bouncer, no more wildcat switches!
Disabled: Note that manual switching is also disabled in this mode.


We’ve added MariaDB to our list of supported databases.


DataGrip now supports external schemas in Redshift and virtual schemas in Exasol.


Events in MySQL are shown in the database tree. Source code generation is also available. Icons will be delivered soon 🙂


SQL editor

Now DataGrip lets you navigate to the next or previous identifier occurrence by using two shortcuts, Alt + Wheel down and Alt + Wheel up. (Or enter ‘highlighted element usage’ in Find Action.) Before, you could only navigate to the next text occurrence. It should be noted that text occurrence and reference are not always the same.


Another new action in DataGrip is Move element left or right. This works for different kind of lists including parameters inside functions, fields in INSERT statement, and the column list. Note that it doesn’t spoil the comma while working with the column list, while Move Line surely would.


Completion for file references now works for Oracle and Exasol.


SQLite commands used to spoil highlighting. No more.


Common table expressions are supported in MySQL.


We’ve merged two navigation actions: Go to class and Go to table.

In DataGrip, you can now navigate to classes if you use any of the other supported languages.
In other JetBrains IDEs, you can finally see database objects here like tables, stored procedures, etc.

IntelliJ Platform enhancements
— In the Replace in Path window, the IDE now provides an ability to preview a regex replacement.
— Now, the Search Everywhere pop-up receives focus (IDEA-124160).
— When you search through the current file, the IDE now highlights folded code regions if they contain the matching occurrences.

That’s about it! Thank you in advance for taking these EAP builds for a spin. Do let us know what you think!

      Sorry, but we don’t plan this for 2018.1. It is rather admin features, and we have them in our far road-map. But not for the closest release.

    Sad. Again no debugger for stored procedures. DataGrip looks really good and promising but without real support for coding and debugging procedures I cannot take the product seriously. Keep up the good work – I am sure as soon as this feature is available DataGip will make an impact and will get interesting for so many more developers. 🙂

      Hi, Marc! I assume you mean PL/SQL debugging. We have a ticket for it: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/DBE-424

      Yes, we understand it is important and we even began some architectural work for making debugger possible. Still, it is not planned for 2018.1: it is a huge feature. For sure, it will be implemented, but not soon.

      Thanks you for your feedback!

    How about support for Hive? Is that on the roadmap anywhere?

    Nice… Will there be a EER Diagram Designer tool in the future?

      You mean, design the database with the graphic help of diagrams? Sorry, but we don’t consider this for 2018.
