Monitor and delete dataflows

Source connectors in Adobe Experience Platform provide the ability to ingest externally sourced data on a scheduled basis. This tutorial provides steps for viewing existing accounts and dataflows from the Sources workspace. This tutorial also provides steps for deleting dataflows from the Sources workspace.

Getting started

This tutorial requires a working understanding of the following components of Adobe Experience Platform:

Monitor accounts

Log in to Adobe Experience Platform and then select Sources from the left navigation bar to access the Sources workspace. The Catalog screen displays a variety of sources for which you can create accounts and dataflows with. Each source shows the number of existing accounts and dataflows associated to them.
Select Accounts from the top header to view existing accounts.
The Accounts pages appears. On this page is a list of viewable accounts, including information about their source, username, number of dataflows, and date of creation.
Select the funnel icon on the top left to launch the sort window.
The sorting panel allows you to access accounts from a specific source. Select the source you wish to work with and select the account from the list on the right.
From the Accounts page, you can view a list of existing dataflows associated with the account you accessed. Select the dataflow you wish to view.
The Dataflow activity screen appears. This page displays the rate of messages being consumed in the form of a graph.

Monitor dataflows

Dataflows can be accessed directly from the Catalog page without viewing Accounts . Select Dataflows from the top header to view a list of existing dataflows.
A list of existing dataflows appears. On this page is a list of viewable dataflows, including information about their source, username, number of dataflows, and status. Select the funnel icon on the top left to sort.
The sorting panel appears. Select the source you wish to access from the scroll menu and select the dataflow from the list on the right.
The Dataflow activity screen appears. This page displays the rate of messages being consumed in the form of a graph.
For more information on monitoring dataflows and ingestion, refer to the tutorial on monitoring streaming dataflows .

Delete a dataflow

You can delete dataflows that were incorrectly created or are no longer necessary by accessing the dataflows screen. Locate the dataflow you wish to delete using the sorting funnel icon and select the dataflow to open the Properties panel.
To delete a dataflow, select Delete from the properties on the top right.
A final confirmation message appears. Select Delete to confirm.
After a few moments, a green confirmation box appears on the bottom of the screen to confirm a successful deletion.
Alternatively, you can delete a dataflow from Accounts screen. Locate the account you wish to access using the sorting funnel icon and select the account from the list.
The Accounts page appears. Select the dataflow you intend to delete and then select Delete from the properties panel to complete the process.
Follow the confirmation steps outlined above to complete the process.

Next steps

By following this tutorial, you have successfully accessed existing accounts and dataflows from the Sources workspace. Incoming data can now be used by downstream Platform services such as Real-time Customer Profile and Data Science Workspace. See the following documents for more details:
