3. How long does it take for the data to be imported into Zoho Analytics? 

After setup, you might have to wait sometime for the initial fetch to happen. This depends upon the amount of data being imported, and also the response time of your Amazon S3 server. You will receive an email notification once the import is complete. If the workspace is accessed before the initial fetch, it will not display any data.​

4. Can I import data from the views created in Amazon S3?

You can import data from tables, external tables, managed tables, views, and virtual views available in your Amazon S3 database into your Zoho Analytics workspace.​

5. Will the foreign keys defined between the tables in the cloud database be linked in Zoho Analytics as well? 

When importing multiple tables, the foreign keys defined between the tables in the cloud database will be linked in Zoho Analytics using lookup columns. However, if you import one table at a time, the foreign keys will not be defined. In such cases, you can manually link the tables in Zoho Analytics using the lookup column functionality. To learn more about lookup columns, click here.    

6. Is it possible to change the data type of the columns imported into Zoho Analytics?  

While changing the column's data type in Zoho Analytics, ensure that it is compatible with the column's data type in the cloud database, for successful data synchronization. Therefore, it is recommended to change the data type both in Zoho Analytics and in your cloud database. To learn more about changing the column type in Zoho Analytics, click here
