Hi All, Can I make a specific decorator query be platform-specific? I want to provide the same decorator, but have it supplied through a different query for windoze as opposed to linux / mac

I asked the same question: https://osquery.slack.com/archives/C08V7KTJB/p1597099205230900 No answers, but I maybe found a workaround for my use case (two separate queries). Maybe you could take advantage of COALESCE if all the tables are supported by all platforms though 🤷

@Chris Benninger I do not believe this is possible due to column name collisions, can you share the two queries you are trying to have populate the same decorator and I can attempt to assist?

I know that you cannot use CASE/COALESCE logic to platform scope output unless the table is available for both platforms as mentioned by @nyanshak, even if the condition is never met (eg.
WHEN platform = 'darwin' THEN (SELECT local_hostname FROM system_info) WHEN platform = 'windows' THEN (SELECT value from registry...)
) the query planner will issue an error if a table is specified in the query plan that is not compatible with the host device.

Feels like we should support discovery queries on decorators

That's definitely a thought @seph and sounds like the cleanest solution, I wonder if there are any reasons not to...

I've been trying to come up with a clean syntax for it.

I think this is probably a reason people have platform specific condors.
