This document outlines the different types of packaging and query execution capabilities available in Query Service.
Adobe Experience Platform Query Service can be divided into two capabilities based on the query patterns that can be executed:
Query Service capabilities are packaged with the following products and add-ons:
The following table outlines the key Query Service entitlements based on how they are packaged:
|Query Service Entitlement
|Packaged with Platform-based applications
|Packaged with Data Distiller
|Query Pattern Supported
|Ad hoc queries only
|Use Case Supported
|Maximum Execution Time
|Query User Concurrency:
With the Data Distiller SKU, you also get an additional user and query concurrency, which can be used towards the execution of ad hoc queries. The Data Distiller SKU includes:
|Accelerated query and reporting usage
|Yes - Concurrent accelerated queries allow you to read data from the accelerated store and display within your dashboards. A dedicated entitlement for storing reporting models and datasets in the accelerated store is also provided.
|Data lake storage capacity
|Your total storage entitlement is dependant on your platform-based applications licenses. For example, Real-Time CDP, AJO, CJA, and so on.
|Yes - An additional storage entitlement is provided to persist your raw and derived datasets for Data Distiller use cases beyond a seven-day data expiration date.
Your data lake storage capacity is measured in terabytes (TB) and depends on the quantity of Compute hours that you have bought. Please check the product description for more details.
|Data export allowance
|Your total export entitlement is dependant on your platform-based applications licenses. For example, Real-Time CDP, AJO, CJA, and so on.
|Yes - An additional export entitlement is provided to allow for the export of derived datasets created using Data Distiller.
Your annual data export allowance is measured in terabytes (TB) and depends on the quantity of Compute hours that you have bought. Please check product description for more details.
|Query Execution Interface
|Query Results Returned Via
|Derived dataset stored in data lake
|CTAS and ITAS queries only generate success messages as the query output is stored in derived datasets.
|Read Dataset Capacity
|Write Dataset Capacity
|Query Alert Setup Capacity
Access control for Experience Platform is administered through the Adobe Admin Console where product profiles link users with permissions and sandboxes. See the access control overview for more information.
In order to use Query Service, the Manage Queries permission must be enabled within Admin Console. This permission allows users to execute ad hoc and batch queries. Detailed instructions for requesting access to the product profile Manage Queries permission have been outlined in the manage permissions for a product profile and manage users for a product profile documents.
After purchasing the Data Distiller add-on, the Write Dataset permission must be granted. This permission allows Data Distiller users to execute batch queries.
The following table outlines the effects of the Manage Queries permission:
|Manage Queries (without write data permission)
|Provides access to execute ad hoc queries
|Manage Queries (with write data permission)
|Provides access to execute batch queries
Sandboxes are virtual partitions within a single instance of Experience Platform. Each Platform instance supports multiple production and non-production sandboxes, each maintaining its own library of Platform resources. Non-production sandboxes allow you to test features, run experiments, and make custom configurations without impacting your production sandboxes. For more information on sandboxes, see the sandboxes overview. All Query Service entitlements are shared across all sandboxes.
