rdomo How to append data

I'm trying to append data to a data set (created via rdomo) using the rdomo package.

I've tried with the ds_update function but it looks like it's replacing the data.

Is there any other function I can use?

    Have you tried passing in 'APPEND' as the update method parameter in your ds_update function?

  • yes I've tried but it looks like the function accept only 2 parameters.

    I've tried update_domo <- domo$ds_update("ds_id",my_dataset,"APPEND") but it doesn't work

    From R help:

    Usage

    ds_update(ds_id, df_up)

    Arguments

    ds_id Data set id (from url in Domo).

    df_up Dataframe to upload.

    I was hoping it mirrored the pydomo package but doesn't appear to be the case. What you could do is configure an ETL to do a recursive append every time your rdomo dataset is updated in Domo.

  • I'll give it a try. Thanks! It would be great to have this function in the package btw.

    @hello_data if you're getting into scripting outside of Domo I'd take a look at the Java CLI in addition to rdomo or pydomo.

    this might be a clean low code way to push data into Domo
