Filed types and partial update in custom dataSource Api

Ilaria asked on June 9, 2020

I’m thinking about implementing the custom data source api to optimize very large data sources, but before that I want to be sure that all the features I’m using are supported in the new data source type.

  • partial updates: we use a lot this feature. How partial updates are managed in the custom data source api?
  • types supported in field are: string, date and number. But what about type ‘property’, ‘id’ and ‘delete’ (we use those types for partial updates to manage aggregate editing)

Thank you!

Hi Ilaria,
Thank you for writing to us.
Please find our answers to your questions below:

  1. At the moment, the partial data update is only supported for the JSON data source. This feature is problematic to implement for the custom data source API because of the technical specificities of this approach.
  2. For reasons described in clause 1, the mentioned property, id & delete types are not available for the custom data source API as well.

Please let us know if you have any other questions we can help you with.
