Configuring sync options for projects

For files that are added to projects through virtual connections can be set to sync automatically on regular intervals. This ensures that the users of data in the application have access to updated content.

The sync options available are:

  • Never

  • Every hour

  • Every day

  • Every week

Note

Note that when auto sync is enabled for a project, only the files added directly in a project are synced. Any files in the dataset are not synced. to sync those files, enable auto sync for datasets.

To configure auto-sync for projects:

  1. On the Project page, browse to the Settings tab.

  2. In the Automatic sync options, for the Files setting, select from Every hour, Every day, or Every week. Click Save.

  3. If you are using streams to add data to projects, for the Streams setting, select from Every hour, Every day, or Every week. Click Save.

  4. If your project is already linked to virtual data sources, you get the option to enable these sync options from the Overview tab of the Project page.

    Note

    When the sync options are changed from the Overview tab, the setting for both Files and Streams are changed.

  5. If available, you can always sync files manually by clicking the Sync now option next to the files. Clicking the button next to any file, syncs all files in the project.
