Question

How does the "Update PI" flag tie everything together within KTA and KAFTA?

Answer

Data from TotalAgility DB (core KTA information) & TotalAgility_Reporting DB (Capture information) gets pulled directly into KAFTA by scheduled Insight plans.

Let’s take the Hourly execution plan to illustrate what occurs under the hood:

  • The Hourly execution plan is composed of multiple execution plans. The main ones are Load Live Data; Load Finished Data; Load Reporting Data.
  • These execution plans connect to the respective databases, invariably loading data into temporary records

  • The necessary Capture and Core Total Agility information required by the KAFTA reports get pulled into these temporary KAFTA records, irrespective of whether ARCHIVE_TO_PI is true or false.
  • The execution plan “Generate Records based on Records” then executes. This populates the target records using the data in the temporary records.

  • Currently, all Capture information is retained within the KAFTA database which has been raised for resolution in TFS #590663
