Unable to use regexextract function to create custom columns

It should be 8.0.35.

I believe it is not related to the version of MySQL, as I can still execute previously saved questions with regexextract expressions.
However, I am currently unable to modify existing questions with regexextract expressions or create new ones.

Would you mind sharing with me a screenshot of the GUI that you are able to execture the regex statement

This is the GUI for this question.

This is the SQL generated automatically for this question.

This is the execution results for this question.

I have noticed a peculiar phenomenon. In the same Metabase, when I query from another database (Redshift database), the "regexextract" function works. Why is that?

Hmmm can you confirm the MYSQL version? I know you mentioned "It should be 8.0.35." but can you confirm so i can deploy a similar Version and check

Hey there,

I have the exact same issue, on 0.49.3 with MySQL 8.0.35 too.

I had to switch to a question written in SQL in order to be able to use REGEXP_SUBSTR (that works perfectly fine). So there's no reason we have this "Unsupported function regex-match-first" in the notebook editor when we try to use regexextract.


Any news ?


I'm running into this as well.

Running 0.49.12 and mysql 8.0.36. Not sure if this matters, but the table is from an uploaded csv file.

not sure how but now i managed to replicate opened a bug, for reference:


I have the same problem with my sql database.
