DB Extract agent should be extracting data more frequently

Currently the field 'FrequencyInHours' in the DB Extraction agent configuration defines how frequently the data can be extracted. The min value for FrequencyInHours is 1 hour. This would mean that we can only pick up data that is older than 1 hour where as we currently (in On-Prem OMS) extract data every few minutes. Our order performance dashboard displays near real time accurate data. When we go live on OMoC, the data will be stale by more than an hour. Can you please enable more frequent data extraction?

How will this idea be used?

For our performance dashboards.

    Hi Siva, With current architecture, it may not be possible to reduce the sync frequency. The DB backup runs every 1 hour and extract agent is run on DB backup. For details , please check following link.

    Currently, we do not have plan to change our DB backup architecture.

    To meet your needs, please consider using transactional events to generate real-time alerts.

    Ability to run this by every 30 minutes, so that we keep Data lag to an Hour Max.

    Hi, Since we have not received any further information on business use cases requested on 3/26/21, I am closing this as. Please reopen the idea with all required information if needed

    Hi, Thanks for logging this idea.

    OMoC supports event-based architecture for getting data based on various transaction events. This can be used to obtain data from OMoC as soon as transaction completes in OMoC.

    We are reviewing this idea and will post comments after our review. Could you please add following information to your idea?


    1. What is the desired frequency you would like to run the extract agent?

    2. Time interval (in hours or minutes), prior to current time, for which data should not be extracted?

    3. Limitations in using event - based approach , if any?
