DataWorks supports real-time data synchronization. This topic describes how to create, commit, and manage real-time sync nodes.


The real-time synchronization feature is activated. Currently, the real-time synchronization feature is in the phased release stage. To activate this feature, submit a ticket.

Create a real-time sync node

  1. Log on to the DataWorks console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Workspaces.
  3. In the top navigation bar, select the region where the target workspace resides. Find the target workspace and click Data Analytics in the Actions column.
  4. On the Data Analytics tab, move the pointer over the Create icon and choose Data Integration > Real-Time Sync.
    You can also find the target workflow, right-click Data Integration, and then choose Create > Real-Time Sync.
