Adjust a dataset scan schedule

  1. In the Dataset dashboard, click the stacked dots icon of the dataset you wish to edit.
  2. In the Scan Schedule tab, uncheck the box to Use Data Source Default Schedule, then adjust the scan schedule as needed.
    If you wish to trigger Soda scans externally, select Schedule Externally in the Dataset Scan Schedule field, then copy the JSON or CURL snippet to use outside Soda Cloud to send a POST call to
  3. Save your changes, then wait for Soda Cloud to complete the next scan of your dataset according to the new scan schedule you set.
