Data Source

It would be helpful if I clicked on a data source from the library to see what klips are actually using that particular data source.  Since there is no validation now to prevent duplicate data source names it would be helpful to be able to consolidate them by viewing what klips are using the data sources.

    This would be very useful to me as well, for the same reasons - right now I know I have multiple data sources which are unused, I just have no effective way of knowing which ones they are.  I've been rewriting various klips to pull from larger SQL data sources instead of small API calls for a couple of products (less load since it's just one refresh instead of 1 per API call, also keeps the klips more closely in sync) and would very much like to do some cleanup of data sources.

    I noticed about 2 years ago there was a post by Klipfolio noting this was available in the (beta) API at the time - is that still the case, and if so how can the information be pulled?  I don't see it in the API docs, and there's nothing relevant coming back in any API calls I've made against the datasource info.

     

    Thanks

    Hi Kevin and Mike,

    Thank you for raising your situations and the enhancement request to expose a list of Klips using a data source in the library (associated with the data source).  I will raise the request for prioritization and add your names for additional context.

    Mike, there is a mechanism in the API to request a list of Klips based on a data source ID.  On this page http://apidocs.klipfolio.com/docs/klips the optional parameter for datasource_ID should get you what you were asking for.

    Cheers,

    Scott.

    We have a similar situation as Kevin.
    Having a list of the data source with the Klips that are using them would be very much helpful as we are trying to clean up Our dashboards due the rewrite of almost all of the dashboards.

    Hope this can be a feature soon, because our dashboards are beginning to be slow our best guess: too many connections from the database due unused data sources.

    Hello

    Can you please confirm if you can now see a list of klips associated with data sources?

    Thanks
