I have a question about running a flow. I have a flow that use closed data and snapshot data.The closed data is updated once a month and the snapshot data is updated every day. How can I run the flow without running every day the closed data but only the snapshot data?
Thanks for your reply. Using the toolbox will stop the flow for running, but the problem by using the toolbox is, that no data is running through the flow with the closed data. In the flow I have two connections to the ODBC database (two different datamarts (one for closed data and one for snapshot data)). One is closed data (from Dec-2018 to Sep-30-2019) and one is for last Friday, Nov-8-2019. I disabled the first flow (closed data). After running I only receive the data from the snapshot data (Nov-8-2019). What I want to achieve is, that the closed data is also in the output file if I only run the snapshot data, because the closed data I already have downloaded last month.
The ultimate goal for not running the flow is to save run time. At this moment the run time is about 35 minutes. What I would like to achieve with not running the closed data (run time 33 minutes) is to shorten the run time to 3 minutes (run time for snapshot data).
If I would use the detour tools, does this mean that the run time is reduced to 3 minutes?
I would need to see your workflow to confirm it at least. What I can confirm you is that if you have on one branch of the detour tool all the processing and on the other you bypass this process then sure, your workflow will need much less time to process all the information.
What I did here whas create an app thas chooses the data origin. When you don need to update the data this will be loaded from a yxdb which has all the information you did already process. If you need to update the data you just need to click on the check box, this will update the yxdb and disable the other data input, preventing it from getting duplicated data.
