String operations in query


we are using Dgraph now since several months and we keep running into the issue / need that we would like to either hardcode a value or do string operations before we return.

Example 1: FullName : Concat(person.FirstName, person.LastName)
Example 1: PrefixedName: Concat($var1, person.LastName)

Is there currently a possiblity to achieve this?
If not is something like this on the roadmap for DQL?

No way to do this now in pure DQL, yes it is on the roadmap, no I do not think it will be done any time soon based on recent feature velocity. (note: I am not a dgraph employee, so maybe they would have more insight)

See roadmap here:

  • String transformation functions

That roadmap is no longer valid. We have been crossing our fingers to get a new one for 2022.

@hardik is there going to be an update to the 2021 Roadmap or even better by when will we see a 2022 Roadmap?
