`Dynamic` Schedule Type no longer supported on Views

Monte Carlo has identified an issue with custom monitors that use Dynamic schedules on VIEW table types. Currently, Dynamic schedules require freshness information to function correctly, which isn't available for VIEW tables.

As a result, these monitors have defaulted to running every 48 hours. To ensure consistent monitoring and to avoid future issues, we will automatically update all affected monitors to fixed schedules with a 48-hour interval starting yesterday, April 24th. Additionally, we will implement a new validation rule to prevent Dynamic schedules from being applied to VIEW tables.

  • If you NOT are using MaC: No action is needed unless you wish to adjust the frequency of your monitor schedules to shorter than 48 hours.
  • If you are using MaC: Starting yesterday, April 24th, you will be unable to edit these monitors through MaC without switching to a fixed schedule due to the new validation rule. If you attempt to apply without having changed any of these monitors, it will still work! However, once one of these monitors are edited, if the schedule is not also modified, the apply will throw an error. We recommend updating your monitors to fixed schedules to avoid disruption.
