What’s new at Blendo: Data Source Status History and Usage Views

Blendo Team

Having accurate and current data for your Business Intelligence isn’t just nice to have. We want businesses that manage their data infrastructure with Blendo to have an awareness of how their data is flowing and at the same time, help them solve any problems that arise.

The two new updates we launched give you visibility into what’s driving your usage metrics, and the status of your pipelines. Both can help you better understand usage and what data from which resources flow to your destination, giving you an auditing ability.

What’s new at Blendo: Data Source Status History and Usage Views

Increase your team’s awareness of your pipeline health and data freshness with Historical pipeline status data.

Just as you’d rely on a fitness tracker app to document the miles you walk, the routes you run and the calories you burn, the new Blendo History tab documents the data integrations that you automate through our system.

Your Data Source History tab provides an overview of your pipeline’s previous runs, but it also lets you drill down into the details of each run. A run is every time we sync data from a data source.

We believe that giving you details and context about your data will help you understand the health of your integrations, how they work and where they might be hitting snags.

The new Data Source History helps you:

Understand the ins and outs of your sync runs.

You can now see when your job run, how long it took to finish and how many rows were synced. Use the “finish at” time to see patterns on why a resource took so much longer in comparison to previous runs.

Understand the ins and outs of your sync runs.

Another example:

When used with our email notifications, it can give you a clearer picture of why and if your data is current. In case of service interruptions (e.g., a data source’s API became unreachable or OAuth issues) Blendo sends an email to you and tries to recover from that error in the next run. Please read our knowledge base for more of these cases.

You now have a way to go back historically in your errors. Use the new date filter to narrow your search.

 

Easily Identify Errors

Errors in your History tab are more clearly labeled, and when you click on the sync run you need, you’ll see the error statement clearly identified along with the resources that were affected.

Drill down to your pipeline runs’ data

Having recognized which run needs investigation you can drill down to more information.

Drill down to your pipeline runs’ data

For example:

Which data source resource brought more data and caused a delay? Use the History tab and select the sync run you need. In the drop-down info, you can check the Table’s Resource Name, Records Synced, Sync’s Run Started at, Sync’s Run Finished At and Sync Run Duration columns.

This information makes it easier to understand what information is involved in a run and how it passes through Blendo.
