Log event when data source connection attempts exceeded

Related to this item: Never mark a data source as unavailable when volatile is enabled.

When we have configured volatile sources (or not) and trying to connect to a data source.. it will eventually give up (based on data source / volatile settings). However once this happens, we don't know.

E.g. If had a retry x 5 over 10mins.. after 10mins the report will simply stop trying to connect and fail to run.

We can see this in the source logs, but how can we track this via the event table for remediation . E.g. Attempt 5 of 5 failed. Giving up.

Can we please have a way to track this via the DB?

Have logged this feature request on your behalf Manish.

Please let me know if you needed anything in the interim.



In this case, you can try to use odbc connection and check if it helps.
