We had a accidental delete and trying to track down the transaction where it is coming from. We do not have backups to recover. Any Ideas how we can track and recover from this situation.

  • Depending on how far back your metadata goes, you should be able to track down the source.
    Find the query that caused the delete in the query_profiles or query_requests table. Query_requests goes back further, I think. You can search for the query in the "request" column. Find the session_id of that transaction. And then, if you're lucky, you'll be able to find the corresponding session from the user_sessions table.

    Incidentally, if you need to try to recover the row, you can try an "at time" or "at epoch" query. Basically, something like: "AT TIME 'time' SELECT * FROM bla" or "AT EPOCH ## SELECT * FROM bla" - each is a sort of historical snapshot of the deleted record prior to its delete vector getting removed. But by the default, this window is pretty small, so it might not be available anymore, depending on when the delete occurred, and how active the system is.
