HCI DS - DataFlow trigger on an event

Hi,

Is there any way to trigger scheduled DF in HCI based on some event or some flag?

E.G. Data is extracted from BI, but we want schedules to run only when BI process chain is completed.

BI team can generate any type of file or some status message based on our requirement, but I still couldnt figure out how can I use that to make sure job has runonly after BI PC is over.

I limitation of HCI is that I cant have multiple DF which are dependent on different DS. E.G. 1 DF to extract from FF and other from SAP system. If this was possible, then I do have the solution.

Thanks,

Purav

    Hi Purav,

    You could achieve this using an external schedular.

    HCI doesn`t have explicit support for external schedulars, but with webservices API to start and monitor HCI tasks - you can use any scheduler that can call web services.

    Also check 1.0.8 release - process feature. You can group data flows with different sources and specify the execution order.
