Data Source Metadata Queries

Data Source Metadata queries return metadata information for a dataSource. These queries return information about:

  • The timestamp of latest ingested event for the dataSource. This is the ingested event without any consideration of rollup.

The grammar for these queries is:

{
    "queryType" : "dataSourceMetadata",
    "dataSource": "sample_datasource"
}

There are 2 main parts to a Data Source Metadata query:

property description required?
queryType This String should always be "dataSourceMetadata"; this is the first thing Druid looks at to figure out how to interpret the query yes
dataSource A String or Object defining the data source to query, very similar to a table in a relational database. See DataSource for more information. yes
context See Context no

The format of the result is:

[ {
  "timestamp" : "2013-05-09T18:24:00.000Z",
  "result" : {
    "maxIngestedEventTime" : "2013-05-09T18:24:09.007Z",
  }
} ]
