Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Quick Scan job - Selected 100 schemas and if it discovers only 85 the remaining should show up to match

Tested using ICP4D MARIA environment.

Steps to Reproduce

Log in to MARIA ICP4D

navigate to Quick Scan

Selected 100 schemas and discovered only 65. No status on other missed schemas. Even if it has ) Tables it should count that also to match up the Quick Result Action Required Tab. I see some of the tables not discovered has data. These are the 3 tables I see the tables and not empty. These 3 tables were expected to discover also. If the job skips for some reason we should have a display for the user to show which table has 0 and which ones did not discover would be helpful to avoid the user confusion.

Expected Result: 100 schemas should display to match the Quick Scan Result screen

Actual Result: 65 schemas displays.

    Thanks Sudha. We updated our documentation to reflect the current behavior. In our new Metadata Import functionality, we will look at this as a potential enhancement

    No. It is not the job. when discovered there if there is a blank table it will not count that as discovered. It only shows the discovered tables with data count. user will be confused with this. I want to see all the status for the schema or table I select. I hope you understand. If you still have questions, you can check with Weiren or let me know. The schema selected for discovery count and the screen display should match for 100 instead of 85. thanks.

    Thanks Sudha. I'm getting someone on the dev team to take a closer look. It sounds like there were tables that were not "discovered" - what do you mean by this? Did the analysis fail as part of this job? If you are able to pull the logs, it will help us accelerate triaging this issue. Thanks

    Naomi, Quick scan runs successfully. however the schema we ran or the discovery jobs does not match the screen display. ex: If a user selects 100 schemas and 30 are empty or whatever the reason it did not analyze or complete there is no display. It only displays 65 discovered vs 100? please let me know. thanks.

    Thanks Sudha! To help clarify, did the Quick Scan job run successfully? Are you able to access the logs? I'm wondering if this is an issue with the job itself. Thanks
