  • PDF

From the Sisense Data page, you can manage your ElastiCubes and view their current states.

The Data page contains a list of the ElastiCubes and Live models you have created or that have been shared with you.


Recently worked on ElastiCubes or Live models are displayed (by default), or select from options in the upper-right to show all models, models created by you, or models shared with you.

Alternatively, you can locate ElastiCubes using the Search field on the upper-left.

Each tile contains information about the status of the ElastiCube and Live model, its owner and who it is shared with.

Open ElastiCubes by clicking a tile, or manage ElastiCubes by clicking located on a tile's upper-right, and selecting one of the following options:

  • Stop - Stop the ElastiCube. ElastiCube s that have been stopped cannot be queried. This is useful for troubleshooting ElastiCubes and issues with your dashboard.

  • Restart - Restart an ElastiCube that you have stopped.

  • Build - Build the tables. You need to select the required build behavior from the following options:

  • Schedule Build - Schedule builds to automatically synchronize with the underlying data source to ensure all data is up to date. See Scheduling Builds for more information.

  • Duplicate Model - Create a copy of a Live or ElastiCube model. See Duplicating Data Models for more information.

  • Export - Export a model or draft version and/or model data. See Exporting and Importing Models for more information.

  • Instances -

  • Cancel all Queries - Cancel all current queries to the ElastiCube.

  • Fiscal Year start - If you need to express your company’s date fields according to a fiscal month other than from January 1st (default setting), Sisense allows setting your fiscal calendar according to your company’s requirements. See Changing Your Fiscal Year for more information.

Otherwise, you will be prompted to remap your dependencies to another data source. See Deleting ElastiCubes and Live Models for more information.
