Refreshing Table Metadata

Arcadia Instant enables you to refresh metadata definitions of data tables that are available through established connections.

Availability Note. Refresh is only available on Arcadia and Impala connections. This feature is limited to Arcadia Enterprise installations.

To refresh metadata in the Connection Explorer, follow these steps.

To update the metadata definition for a specific table:

  1. Click Refresh next to the table name. Here, we used census_pop.

  2. A Success modal window appears, with the following message: Metadata information for table census_pop is updated.

To perform a bulk refresh of all tables on all connections:

  1. Click the Refresh button at the top.

    Developer Note. Depending on the number and complexity of connections, this operation may impact performance.
