Why do I have duplicate PDTs?

Userlevel 5

Last tested: Apr 4, 2020

PDTs can be shared by multiple models. When duplicates show up in the Admin PDT panel, the following could be the culprits:

  • Datagroups used to persist the PDT are defined differently in different models.
  • The models use a different connection.
  • Defining some models to be case sensitive, while others are not. This might change the where clause in the PDT SQL.

Duplicates also occur when we have include: *.view syntax across all of the models. To avoid this, one way is to create folders that hold the required views, and then including references to the folders, like like so: include: "/folder_name/*.view.lkml"
