Question with .overwrite partitions

Avatar

Level 2

Hi there,

 

We have a .overwrite partition for customer profiles that is broken into 26 partitions. If our data looks like this:

Customer ID (Cross Device ID)Key Value PairsIn partition
1"product_id" = "123", "activated" = "Y".02
1"product_id" = "223", "activated" = "N".26

 

I am wondering for customer 1, which profile would they get? Would they get product 123, or product 223, or both? I am hoping it's both but since this is a .overwrite method, I am not sure if it will get product 223 because it's in the .26 partition which will get processed after .02 and overwrite it?

 

Thanks,

Alan

Hello @akwankl ,

 

Hope you are keeping well!

In the above example, only product_id=223 and activated=n will stay as we are talking about overwrite files.

AAM will consider only the last record for that customerID when it comes to overwrite files.

Hi @Ankita_Sodhi 

 

Just wanted to follow up on this, even if the files are partitioned files being sent to AAM, it will still only consider the last record?

Hello @akwankl ,

 

In case of overwrite files, yes the last record will be considered and will overwrite all others.
