How to know where is stored a loading process?

Hi! As a big user of Good Data APIs, we implemented methods to properly create and delete source connections to our Amazon S3 containers.

Still, I’m blocked by a conflict that I’m not sure how to solve : I cannot delete a datasource which should not be used anymore in our domain because a “loading process” is built in top of it (a technical layer, before the schedules definitions if I understood correctly).


I found in the API that project by project, I can list all the loading process that has been declared in each : I cannot find back in any of my projects this blocking process (despite I’m administrator of the domain).


Is there a way to get directly to a loading process knowing its ID, or listing all the loading process existing in a domain? And may my issue come from the fact that some projects or some loading processes may exist in a domain and the administrator is not allowed to see them?

So frustrating because I do have the id of the loading process that is blocking me :


Just don’t know what to do with it...


If anyone faced this issue already, thanks in advance!

Hi Quentin,

I am afraid, there is no easy way to list all the processes under the certain Domain right now, but you can use this API call to list data loading processes for a project.
If you are unable to see this particular one, it might be caused by a fact that you are not the Admin of the project where the process is running now.

Delete a Data Loading Process


Hello, thanks for your tips. In fact, I was able to have an hint with a domain administrator API that lists all the workspaces in the domain, and I could find even the ones that are not active (i.e. not visible in the web portal). They are in ARCHIVED or DELETED state.

Unfortunately I cannot check if a loading process exists on these ARCHIVED or DELETED workspaces (i don’t have the rights).


But could this be the explanation? Could a DELETED or ARCHIVED workspaces that were using an existing datasource prevent deleting this datasource?


Thanks for the precision!

Hi Quentin, 

The reason you are unable to delete the data loading process is that it is tied to a deleted workspace. We have a ticket open internally regarding this limitation and we are working on making it possible to delete a data source even if it’s tied to a loading process in a deleted workspace. In the meantime, I have gone ahead and undeleted the workspace “AuvergneSeramikOld” so you can delete the data loading process (feel free to delete it after this is done). Please give that a try and let us know if you are now able to delete the datasource.




Thanks for this precision, it’s very clear. I did succeeded into deleting my data source correctly now. Then deleting my project.


Thanks for the help!
