Executing DataSets

Version 10

 

When you execute (run) a DataSet, you are essentially doing a refresh of the data in that DataSet. For most connectors, you should not need to do this manually, as you schedule automatic updates as part of the connector configuration process.  However, in the event that you do want to perform a manual execution of a DataSet, you may. You do this in the Data Center.

To execute DataSets you do not own, you must have an "Admin" default security role or a custom role with the "Manage DataSets" privilege enabled. For more information about default security roles, see Default Security Role Reference. For information about custom roles, see Managing Roles.

You can execute DataSets one at a time or in bulk. To take bulk actions on DataSets, you must have an "Admin" default security role or a custom role with the "Manage DataSets" privilege enabled.

To manually execute a single DataSet,

  1. Click Data in the toolbar at the top of the screen.
    The Data Center opens, with the Data Warehouse tab opened by default. 

  2. Click the data_center_datasets_icon.png icon on the left side of the screen to open the DataSets tab.

  3. Locate the DataSet you want to execute.
    For more information about searching and filtering DataSets in the Data Center, see Data Center Layout.

  4. Mouse over the row for the DataSet and click the dataset_gear_icon.png icon. 

  5. Select Run.

You can also execute any given DataSet from the details view for that DataSet by selecting Run Now in the wrench menu. For more information about the details view, see Data Center Layout - View Details.

To execute DataSets in bulk,

  1. Click Data in the toolbar at the top of the screen.
    The Data Center opens, with the Data Warehouse tab opened by default. 

  2. Click the data_center_datasets_icon.png icon on the left side of the screen to open the DataSets tab.

  3. Locate one of the DataSets you want to execute.
    For more information about searching and filtering DataSets in the Data Center, see Data Center Layout.

  4. Mouse over the row for the DataSet and click the circled checkmark that pops up over the connector icon.
