Incremental Queries



  • Must accept a date via @submission_date query parameter
    • Must output a column named submission_date matching the query parameter
  • Must produce similar results when run multiple times
    • Should produce identical results when run multiple times
  • May depend on the previous partition
    • Should be impacted by values from a finite number of preceding partitions
      • This allows for backfilling in chunks instead of serially for all time and limiting backfills to a certain number of days following updated data
      • For example sql/moz-fx-data-shared-prod/clients_last_seen_v1.sql can be run serially on any 28 day period and the last day will be the same whether or not the partition preceding the first day was missing because values are only impacted by 27 preceding days
