Manually removing datasource from webui takes time and I have to wait for the ui with refreshed list.
Is removing datasource involves a call to the datasource?
Also, I’m in the page http://docs.dremio.com/rest-api/ … but, do not have comprehensive list of API calls that I can make for adding/removing/filtering sources? Any help appreciated!
We have a tutorial for the REST API in progress, but the link you have is the best resource presently.
Typically removing a source is instantaneous. Which source type is this, and how many do you have connected?
To remove a source you should be able to 1) list all sources using the
GET /api/v3/source endpoint 2) get the id for the source you are interested in 3) then call
To add a source use the
POST /api/v3/source endpoint. Make sure to check the models for different source object types here.
You can find all available endpoints for managing sources here.
As Kelly pointed out, removing a source should be instantaneous and should not make a call to the datasource. There might be something else going on causing this problem.
Thanks both for quick pointers. Perhaps, yes something was going on at that time.
I’ll test the restful datasource manipulations and will update.
I am amazed by the level of quick support I am receiving… eventually, want to go for enterprise…but, testing out the community edition …
my 100+ for documentation on rest apis and a dedicated page for each configuration settings … the more I love, more the ask
