Use the Adapters Fetch History page to review the fetch results over time for each adapter and for specific adapter connections.
To open the Adapters Fetch History page, click icon on the left panel.
In the Adapters page, click Adapters Fetch History.
You can also open the Adapters Fetch History page from a specific adapter. In this case the Adapters Fetch History will be filtered on the specific adapter.
When there are no connections defined for an adapter, the Adapters Fetch History button isn't available on the specific adapter page.
Viewing Fetch History Data
Use this page to view Adapters Fetch History for any fetch action performed in the system, whether it is part of the Discovery Cycle, Manual or Custom Scheduled.
The data is displayed for each fetch action and is auto-refreshed based on the auto-refresh rate definition.
If a specific adapter has only an inactive connection, or the adapter never fetched data, the specific adapter is not displayed in the adapters filter.
The following columns are displayed for each fetch action:
- Adapter Name - The adapter which fetched the data - Filterable column.
- Status - Presents the fetch status - Filterable column.
- Contains the following values:
- Fetch started - The fetch process was initiated.
- Fetch ended successfully - The fetch ended successfully with no errors, and results are presented.
- Fetch ended with errors - The fetch ended but there was one or more errors.
- Fetch failed - The fetch process failed.
- Connection failed - There was a connection error for the specific connection.
- Fetch skipped - When there is a Tunnel configured, and the Tunnel status was disconnected.
- Fetch terminated - The fetch process was terminated by the user.
- Contains the following values:
- Fetch Events - The number and type of Fetch Events. The type of events are indicated by a color that indicates the severity. Mouse over to see how many of each event type. Click on this column to open the Adapter Fetch Events page filtered by the specific fetch for the adapter.
- Instance - The specific instance the adapter and connection were initiated from.
- Connection Label - The connection label (if configured)
- Connection ID - The connection ID.
- Start Time - The fetch process start time - Filterable column.
- End Time - The fetch process end time - Filterable column.

- Ignored Users - The number of users that were not seen by the source in the last X hours (X is defined in Adapter Advanced Settings).

- Error Details - The details of errors - displayed when the status is Connection Failed or Fetch Failed.
Sometimes the Fetch process might take a long time, and you therefore want to stop the Fetch process of an adapter connection.
To stop the Fetch process
- From the Adapter Fetch History page select the adapter or adapters that you want to stop. The Actions menu is available.
- Click the Actions menu and select Terminate Fetch.
The system terminates the fetch process of the adapter connections selected if they are in the middle of the fetch process.
A message is displayed in the Adapter Fetch History pane showing that the adapter fetch was terminated.
Terminate Fetch only stops the current Fetch process. If you do not want this adapter connection to be fetched in the future, you need to set the adapter as inactive in the Adapter page
You can see which adapter connections were terminated by filtering by Fetch Terminated in the Fetch Status dropdown.
You can filter on the values to be displayed in the table. You can then use the filters to create queries based on the filters and also save them as queries which can be used later on. Read more about queries based on filters.
