Extracting build date of a shared dataset

Extracting build date of a shared dataset

Hi All, 

How do you extract the build date of a shared dataset?

Normally with a dataset, you're able to view the build date in the status tab, however for shared datasets that have been shared from another flow, it doesn't show the build date in the status tab. Is there anyway to extract the build date from the shared dataset? Preferably through python, however open to other suggestions. 

Operating system used: Windows

Hi, in DSS 9.0.5 and 10 you will be able to see the last build date under info even for Shared datasets, can you confirm what DSS version you are on?

You can also retrieve the last build date from the, "Internal stats" dataset, in "Objects state" view.

Via the API , you have to create a object with shared/foreign project and dataset name. 


import dataiku
import dataikuapi

project = client.get_default_project()
client = dataiku.api_client()

project = client.get_default_project()
foreign_project_name = "ProjectID_of_shareddataset"
foreign_dataset_name = "shared_dataset_name"

dataset_foreign = dataikuapi.dss.dataset.DSSDataset(client, foreign_project_name, foreign_dataset_name)
#print("Name: %s" %

last_metrics = dataset_foreign.get_last_metric_values()
last_build_datetime = last_metrics.get_metric_by_id("reporting:BUILD_START_DATE")
