Is there a way to refresh exported IBM Watson Analytics data in 3.5.2?


Is there a way to re-export an IBM Watson Analytics dataset and have it refresh rather than create new data? I haven’t refined the data in Watson, just testing after doing a TRIRIGA 3.5.2 upgrade. I exported a dataset from TRIRIGA, waited a day, exported again, and it shows as a second item in Watson.

This is an issue, because there are now discovery sets apparently pointing to the first data import, so the new data isn’t showing up. I don’t see a way to re-point the discovery set, and would prefer to not recreate after going into the new data. Am I overlooking something?

Unfortunately, there is no way for the TRIRIGA Connector for Watson Analytics to refresh or append to an existing dataset, because that capability was not available in the Watson Analytics API when we were developing the TRIRIGA Connector. It’s a good RFE candidate once supported by Watson Analytics and I encourage you to submit a request for enhancement (RFE) under “IBM TRIRIGA Platform”. Also, a good source of information is the Watson Analytics forum.
