Exports

Hi,

We have noticed that when a certain type of export is generated, a file is created on the server that is not deleted afterwards.

Could you tell me specifically what type of export operations are generating these files? If the same file is exported several times, why are multiple export files created and not overwritten or deleted? Is it configurable?

Thanks!

Can you be more specific about what leftover files do you see? Are you aware of Project Macros? (Login as an Admin, go to any project, 3 dots and Macros). There is a built-in Macro called "Remove old Exports". You can even run it in simulation mode to see what it will delete. Macros can be executed in a Scenario step so you can schedule them to run regularly. Normally you will create an "Admin" project to do this work in a project.

Hi,

These files are created in the exports directory within the Dataiku installation directory.

I knew the macros, but the question is more oriented to knowing which export actions generate files, and if it is possible to configure Dataiku in some way so that they are not generated.

Thanks.

All exports are saved to disk first since the user is given the download option AFTER the export is created. Just schedule the Macro to delete anything older than 15 days and problem solved.
