Is it possible to dynamically use the database name or date in the filename when running 'Dump with mysqldump`?

Answered

I often use the 'Dump with mysqldump' command which lets you set the custom 'Out path'. We can use that to name the file whatever we'd like:

/Users/username/Desktop/whatever.sql

However, I often switch between database and often forget to update the last thing I used as the filename. Ideally, I could just set the export filename to a pattern so that I'd never need to worry about updating the setting again. For example:

/Users/username/Desktop/DATABASE_NAME-YYYY-MM-DD.sql

Is there any way to set a dynamic filename that includes the database name or date when exporting a database in DataGrip?
