Data entity refresh takes too long

Posted on by 6,332


I have developed one data entity and have done build / synch. 

When I try to refresh data entities it takes too long. Already more than 1.5 hour.

Is it normal?

It happening on the latest release.

    We are also facing long time run on data entries refresh sometimes. Mainly on cloud-hosted environments. What usually helped us was restarting whole environment from LCS.

    It shouldn't take that long. I have faced the same error after upgrading from 7.3/PU12 to 8.0/PU15.

    One reason can be obsolete data entities on the list.

    Please run this query in the SQL server to find all obsolete entities on your entity list:

    select * from dmfentity where entityconfigkeyname = '' and entityisenabled = 0

    Then remove those entities from the Data entities list and try to refresh again. I simply removed all data projects and data entities.

    For me this didn't help, but after installing the latest platform binary updates the refresh succeeded. I think there's still something strange in the (local) development environment - I had to restart IIS a couple of times and start the refresh again. But eventually the entity list got refreshed. In our Sandbox tier 2 environment the refreshed works perfectly after the platform binary updates.
