Specify the general information

  1. Complete or modify the identification fields.
  2. Field Description

    Name of the request.

    The full path must be unique. By default an automatically generated name is displayed.

    It must not contain:

    • ASCII characters lower than code 32
    • The ‘/’ character

    Parent folder of the request.

    If you have:

    • previously selected a request or a folder, it is displayed by default.
    • not selected a request or a folder, browse through the tree and select a folder.

    If you do not specify a folder, the request is directly stored under the root folder.


    Identifier of the datastore.

    The value is automatically displayed with the first configured source.

    Specifying a Source here enables you to query several data stores.

  3. Complete the execution fields.
  4. Field Description
    Maximum number of results

    Maximum number of records that the query returns.

    Predefined values are: 1000, 5000, 10000, 50000, 10000 (default), 1000000.

    Caution The 1 million option is not recommended. This limit could impact the performance. Cache volume and processing time will increase. It will also have a negative effect on quick filters, quick aggregations, and result sorts.

    Maximum execution time

    Maximum execution time for the query:

    • Number: 1 - 60 minutes, 1- 24 hours
    • Period: hour, minute

    Lifespan of request result:

    • Number: 1 – 24 hours, 1 – 31 days, 1 - 6 months
    • Period: day, hour, month

    The request result is persistent.

    If set, the request data is used by other users during its lifetime. If another user executes the same request with the same parameters, the execution time is quicker because the request uses data already in the cache.

    End date

    Interval for the request
