Datasets - Parameters and Joins together

Greetings everyone.
Loving the Dataset Parameters feature and it is speeding up data retrieval from large data sets.

We need to find out how to join two datasets, both of which are using dataset parameters with custom SQL, that draw from two different RDS’s in the same VPC. When the conventional method of using the ‘Add Data’ feature drops the second dataset onto the field, we can not see the added datasets preview without getting the ‘Something Went Wrong’ message. Which is also preventing the joining of the two.

On their own, these datasets work great. The need is to create a visualization that has these two joined on their common column.


Hi @thudnut

I don’t know if you can do that yet. However, I would suggest reaching out to AWS to confirm / see if there are any errors happening.

I would recommend filing a case with AWS Support where they can dive into the details. Here are the steps to open a support case. If your company has someone who manages your AWS account, you might not have direct access to AWS Support and will need to raise an internal ticket to your IT team or whomever manages your AWS account. They should be able to open an AWS Support case on your behalf. Hope this helps!
