We currently have 3 kinds of queries: Normal Queries, SQL Runner Queries, and Merge Queries. Information about each resides in its own table in the internal database (normal queries in the
query table, sql runner queries in the
sql_query table, merge queries in
merge_query ). So query id 8 is unrelated to sql query id 8.
A query slug is like a string ID. The thing that makes them great is that they are unique across all tables in the database. So if you give me a query slug, I can tell you what kind of query it is.
Query slugs looks like this:
