Path override

A path override is a type of query metadata, which instructs InfoSum Platform to use a particular path when executing the query.

Using a path override, you can override InfoSum Platform's automatic choice of path and keys

For example, you might have a pair of datasets with two possible keys: one containing relatively out-of-date data, and one containing data that is known to be current. Normally, InfoSum Platform will select the key with the higher key fill rate. Using a path override, you can tell InfoSum Platform to use the more current key, even if its fill rate is lower.

If you are using the Query Tool in the Platform, you can set a path override as an advanced option. If you are using the Platform API, you can set a path override using an API parameter.
