Fetch Remote Dataset not working, no data come in datasets

Hi all,
I’m facing an issue on my new instance 3.1.3 docker installation on Ubuntu 18.04. I’ve export from another cms (3.1.1) layouts with datatsets and import them in my new instance.
When I tried to fetch remote dataset, no datas was coming in my datasets.

I thought that it was an issue with my layouts freshly imported but I try to create a new remote dataset with json link and no synch was able for this one to…

Thank’s in advance for your help.

Best regards,

I’ve created a debug task and I found this in logs :

“Skipping dataSet 1 due to it not being accessed recently” What does it mean exactly ?
best regards

The dataset must be being actively consumed by a Player for it to be updated otherwise the CMS won’t do so.

Hi Alex,
Thank you for your answer.
In fact, I’m not sure to understand “actively consumed”… Do you mean a player playing a layout with datas requested from a dataset ?
I have actualy 9 players with datasets requests since 3 days. I 've cleared the cache of each players to see if it change something but the datasets still empty.

On the player the layout play “NO DATA RETURN FROM THE SOURCE”.

Maybe I missed something ?

Actively consumed means that the Players are connecting to the CMS and showing layouts that use those datasets.

If they are doing that, then the dataset will be marked as in use and will be refreshed next time the Remote Datasets task runs.

Hi Alex,

Thank you for this explanation. I can see now how it work.

Actualy I have 10 players with layouts include Remote datasets. I let them playing one entire day but unfortunatly the datasets still not synchronised. I presume the dataset is not marked as “in use” . Could we manualy mark the dataset as “in use” by default all the time ?

If we couldn’t what do you suggest to force the remote dataset synch ?

Best regards,

After changing the task scheduling period, The dataset sync well :slight_smile:

Thank you Alex for your help.

Best regards,

I should be able to view column data for a dataset in the CMS, after creating it and connecting to a data source, correct? I only see a bunch of code instead of respective column data.
