Scenario Conditional on Dataset Metric

Scenario Conditional on Dataset Metric

Hi Community!

I would like to be able to have an automated scenario that runs through if a dataset's record count metric is > 0 but halts (also with SUCCESS) if the record count metric == 0.

More specifically, and by way of illustration, a scenario that does:

Step#1: build dataset A

Step#2: compute metrics on dataset A

Step#3: set a scenario variable v = row count metric on dataset A

Step#4: build dataset B if v > 0

Any ideas would be really welcome, thanks!

Hi Nik, 

You can add a check on the metric row_count. 
A check is a condition that depends on a metric, here the check would be a success if it's above or equal 1:

If not the check is going to fail. 

So then in your scenario
- step 3 is: run this check.
- step 4 is: build dataset B if no prior step failed. (you have this option in the step options)

Thank you Matt!

I've accepted this at it gets what I need done, done - is there a way that I could have such a scenario conclude in a SUCESS, however? The build doesn't happen, which is great, but this isn't really a failure - everything has run correctly...

Thanks again,
