I have two tables,
credit_memo_items and want to show each event individually and will thus do a insert (doing union in this case which is logically the same).
I know the key for both tables and am doing a union with them while sharing the same partition key
credit_memo_dd that I'll be using for the window.
I'm trying to use lag to fill up the rest of the null rows as shown.
The code for the second column looks as follows:
coalesce(invoice_nk, lag(invoice_nk, 1, '') over (partition by cm_dd order by event_at)) as invoice_nk
For some reason the third row shown in the picture is not able to interpret the previous lagged row and insert a value its row as a result. I presume it may have to do something where Athena does not actually execute the lag function recursively and takes the previous row in each partition literally and doesn't wait for the previous rows to get executed.
Is there a way to grab values recursively as I'm trying to do?
Here's the full query:
with cme as( with cm as( select -- change_log row_number() over (partition by id order by updated_at desc) r , cast(cm.invoice_id as varchar(99)) as invoice_nk , cast(cm.id as varchar(99)) as cm_dd , cast(cm.created_at as timestamp) as cm_created_at , cast(cm.updated_at as timestamp) as cm_updated_at from "postgres-replica-parquet".credit_memos cm ) select case when r = 1 then cm_created_at else cm_updated_at end as cm_begin_at , null as cmi_begin_at , invoice_nk , cm_dd , cm_created_at , cm_updated_at from cm ) , cmi as( with ci as( select -- ci.change_log row_number() over (partition by id order by updated_at desc) r , cast(ci.credit_memo_id as varchar(99)) as cm_id , cast(ci.created_at as timestamp) as cmi_created_at , cast(ci.updated_at as timestamp) as cmi_updated_at from "postgres-replica-parquet".credit_memo_items ci ) select -- row 1 is the snapshot when cdc first started null as cm_begin_at , case when r = 1 then cmi_created_at else cmi_updated_at end as cmi_begin_at , null as invoice_nk , cm_id as cm_dd , null as cm_created_at , null as cm_updated_at from ci ) , combined as( with all as( select * from cme union select * from cmi ) select greatest( coalesce(cm_begin_at, cast(date_parse('1970-01-01', '%Y-%m-%d') as timestamp)) , coalesce(cmi_begin_at, cast(date_parse('1970-01-01', '%Y-%m-%d') as timestamp)) ) as event_at , * from all ) select event_at , cm_begin_at as event_credit_memo_last_at , cmi_begin_at as event_credit_memo_item_last_at , coalesce(invoice_nk, lag(invoice_nk, 1, '') over (partition by cm_dd order by event_at)) as invoice_nk , cm_dd as credit_memo_dd from combined
And a snapshot of the full result:
Rows 3 and 12 should have the invoice_nk based on the credit_memo
cm is the subquery to grab the credit memos
cmi is the subquery to grab the credit memo items
combined is just to precompute the order by key in the window functions
Note that both are pulled from a database that has the full change log (CDC).
The end goal is to make one row for each event, I'm defining an event for the final table to be any time either credit memo or credit memo item undergoes a change. I would like to be able to snapshot the state of a credit memo combined with the credit memo item by windowing at the
event_at for reporting.
