 Delivering data to storage


When data delivery is scheduled, Dataddo gets the actual contents of the data source and perform a set of INSERT operations (one or multiple) against your storage. Neither DELETE nor UPDATE operation is performed, therefore the data are inserted in append-only mode.

Deleting historic rows

In certain cases, the append-only solution might have drawbacks due to the growing size of the database. To cope with this, the best solution is to define an AFTER INSERT trigger that deletes the historic data. In the example below, the trigger deletes all the rows meeting the insert_date < DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 1 DAY) condition. Dataddo connectors allow to extract various date information, so the retention period can be flexibly set.


CREATE TRIGGER trigger_name
ON table_name
DELETE FROM table_name WHERE insert_date < DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 1 DAY)
