How the connector loads data

Initially, data connectors retrieve a full history for each subject to generate an initial history of events. In each subsequent data retrieval, each connector handles the data load differently.

  • Full load: All data from the source system is loaded into Visier.

  • Delta load: Only changed data is loaded into Visier. A delta load may take either the entire history or a specific number of years of history for each changed record.

  • Snapshot load: All data at a particular point in time. A snapshot load does not contain historical records or show changes over time.

  • Partial load: A subset of data is loaded into Visier.

After the initial load, this connector only retrieves data for changed records.

For changed records, this connector retrieves the record's full history.

You can configure how many years of history is retrieved.
