Collect() commands and CDS

Team,

 

I need to be absolutely sure that using Collect() does not require CDS services.  Our organization cannot afford that.  I have used Collect(), but there was not any kind of message or otherwise if this command had anything to do with CDS.  I wont be happy if they are, to be honest.

 

Thank you.

Re: Collect() commands and CDS

I can confirm that the Collect function does not require CDS. You can use it to insert data into any of the supported tabular data sources (SharePoint, SQL Server, Excel, etc.). It can also be used to insert data into local collections.

Did you see any place that indicates that using Collect requires CDS? If so, can you let me know where, so I can communicate to the appropriate owner to fix that? Thanks!

@CarlosFigueira,

 

There was no indication of it, however, I was reviewing the licenses for my organization, and if it did require CDS, we were going to have a huge problem.  The cost of Plan 2 is comopletely cost prohibitive and I use collect() heavily!

 

Thank you for confirming.
