Learn about the alerts section of your Fivetran dashboard.
There are two types of automatically-generated alerts in your Fivetran dashboard - Tasks and Warnings. View both on the Alerts page of your Fivetran dashboard.
We create a Task in your Fivetran dashboard when a problem on your end is breaking a connector or transformation in your account. When we create a new Task in your dashboard, we also generate a notification email. Click on the Task in your Fivetran dashboard or view your notification email to learn about the problem and read instructions about how to fix it.
Tasks fall into one of the following categories:
- Data source connection problem: Your data source is not connected correctly (for example, the setup tests in your Fivetran dashboard failed).
- Data source configuration problem: Your data source is not configured correctly for Fivetran to use (for example, the Fivetran user doesn’t have adequate permissions to access your data).
- Data source file problem: Your source files are not configured correctly (for example, some of your tables have null primary keys).
- Destination connection problem: Your destination is not connected correctly (for example, you did not finish your destination set up in the Fivetran dashboard).
- Destination configuration problem: Your destination is not configured correctly for Fivetran to use (for example, you have exceeded your destination’s storage quota).
We create a Warning in your Fivetran dashboard when there are issues with your connector that you may need to fix, but that are not disrupting your data syncs. Click on the Warning in your Fivetran dashboard to learn more about the issue and determine whether or not you need to take action.
Warnings fall into one of the following categories:
- Excluded tables: We were unable to sync certain tables (for example, you have an object with the
queryable:falseproperty in the source so Fivetran is not able to retrieve information for it and reports it as ‘non-queryable’).
- Excluded files: We were unable to sync certain files (for example, you added a new table for which Fivetran does not have permissions yet).
- Excluded columns: We were unable to sync certain columns (for example, you are still using a column that has been deprecated by your application’s API).
- Change tracking issues: We encountered incomplete change tracking data, which we use for our incremental syncs (for example, your database administrator turned off your change tracking mechanism).
