Real Time Data Source MS GP

Garrick Fischer asked 9 years ago
I have a GP real time data source running on the PM00200 table.

The map is running when once a Vendor ID is selected or entered in Vendor Maintenance window.

I only want the map to run if something is really changes.  I believe the map is running because GP is updating the last modified or modired date just for selecting the vendor.

Do I need to add something to the real time data source or do something in the restricstons of the map?

eal Time maps trigger on the Save function in Dex. You might want to look at change tracking maps and scheduling it regularly so it picks up only when records are changed.

To expand on what Martin said, the real time sources run off of Dexterity triggers within GP. Unfortunately sometimes GP throws off the events when it shouldn't and our real time source picks them up and runs the map since it was told an event occured.

There isn't a way for us to stop that from the real time GP sources, but by using the change data source type the events are tracked at the SQL level so it can be more reliable. If a real time source is needed, the 2014 release will also include a SQL real time data source that would combine the best of both those types of data sources.
