Requirement

VA 6.2 reports to surface data "near real-time". Intraday updates in 15 min cycles.

Without a full re-fresh I understand that I can only append data (no update/delete). Over the period of a day around 5% of data will change.

I could append new rows using a column with a datestamp value. Not sure though how I could use such a column to filter data.

As a SQL it would be something along the line "....group by key    having max(datestamp)=datestamp"

Can something like this be implemented within VA without a full re-fresh of the data?

Thanks

Patrick

Unfortunately, the ability to update, delete and append rows to LASR tables is not available in Visual Analytics 6.2.

But, good news! We are scheduled to release VA 6.3 and LASR 2.2 in December-- that release will include the tools needed to make the table updates you are wanting. It will require custom SAS code, but it will be possible

In future releases, we will continue to refine functionality available in the UI.

I must assume no answer means: Can't be done without a full refresh of the table loaded into VA.
