ODX Server timestamp

Is there a way to get the timetamp of when a table was transferred from source to ODX Server? Like the DW_Timestamp. The only system field i can find is odx_batch_number.

Sorry for the late reply. You can view standard transfers from data source to ODX storage in the ODX execution log, by right clicking on the ODX instance and selecting “View Execution Log”


However, there is currently no way to directly query this execution log data.

A workaround would be to add a query table with a new column GETDATE(). 

Another potential workaround could be to extract the timestamp from the latest created table folder in your data lake for the relevant data source (assuming you are using data lake ODX storage).

Hi @Christian Hauggaard ,

Is it likely that these type of system fields will become available in ODX server tables? Adding a query table for something like this seems like a workaround that requires more manual work, which I would like to avoid. The latest timestamp of a refresh is relevant to show in dashboards, so end-users can see how ‘old’ the data is that they are looking at.


NOTE: with an ADF data source it is not even possible to add query tables as far as I can see.
