Refresh Data, does it call back to ADW?
When I click the "Refresh Data" within a Cloud DVD project does it call back to the ADW or just the local DataSet/s within the project?
- if your dataset is set with the data access rule of 'Automatic Caching' (default value, you can see by editing your dataset), it will only look at the dataset cached in OAC. In this case you need to run refresh datasets to refresh everying
- if your dataset is set with the 'Live' option, then a simple refresh will fire back the queries to ADW
We want to stay set on Auto Caching for performance reasons. Is there a way to Automate, to get the Datasets to call to the ADW each morning and refresh?
You have two options for this
- go the OAC semantic layer (not just a manually created datasource), and create your datasource in the semantic layer (RPD). There you can manage cache refreshes with some set frequency. This requires using the Admintool to design RPD
- keep the source you have now, make it Live, not cached, and run a dataflow that creates/overrides a cached source which is a clone of it. You can then schedule dataflow regularly to refresh your cached source.
Wow over my head ;-(
I have reached out to our Oracle connection and requested some help with this. So far no luck with Google.
Sorry Brian, I was trying to highlight the different options. It sounds option two is the best one for you, it's fairly simple to setup, let us know if you can't get it to work
Will do. Thanks :-)
