Learn how to run a Connector manually, adjust single runs and read a Connector's history table. 

Once a Connector is configured, it is best practice to start running it to validate its connection but also the content of the exports.

Running a Connector

To run a Connector, you can either: 

  • Wait for it to run at the frequency set - Automatic run

The frequency of the runs is set when configuring the Connector. 

  • Trigger it manually at any time - Manual run

You can do so from the 'History' tab > 'Run'

Note: Please, save the Connector before running it and make sure its status is 'Active'.

Manual runs

To run a Connector manually, open the Connector > click 'Run' from the History tab

Once the run is completed, a new entry will appear on the History table. 

Override date range from the setup

When setting up the Connector, you have a default date range that corresponds to the interval you set, or you can 

override it by setting a custom date range. 

However, the custom date range that you set from the setup of the Connection is valid for each run

From the History tab, you can run a Connector manually with a custom date range for a specific run only. 

Simply, adjust the start and end range of the records data before running it.

Run status 

After a run is completed, a Connector can have different statuses:

  • Successful

It means that the run is complete, hence, a file containing records data was created and exported to the connection target. 

  • Failed

It means that the validation failed to run due to an issue with the connection. Please, review your connection from the setup settings or report it to your manager.

The History table

The History table is where you can see all runs with information about them.

This includes the date and time of the run, the date range (start and end range), the data source attached and its type, the number of records (rows) included in the export file, and the status of the run. 

Lastly, an export button allows you to download the data report that was sent.

In each report, the columns contain the options from your Dataset or the fields you defined in the Data schema, whereas each row corresponds to a record based on the status, date, and other conditions you applied.
