Data Refresh

In the bottom left part of the Data editor, you can find the toolbar with actions: image

Refreshing is necessary if the database contains changes made by other users working on it simultaneously with you, and you want to see them in your DBeaver window. To refresh data manually, right-click anywhere in the data table and click image on the context menu or press F5.

Auto refresh

You can also schedule auto-refresh to happen regularly. To auto-refresh the database on schedule:

Click on the arrow in the auto-refresh button image. Now you can configure auto refresh in the two following ways:

1 - Use a predetermined duration

You can select via choosing an available predetermined period in the context menu.


2 - Set your duration

You can set your time duration between refreshes. To do that, select image.The Auto-refresh configuration dialog box will open:


a) Set Interval in seconds.
b) Select the Stop on error checkbox if you want the refresh to stop when it encounters an error or clear it if the refresh should ignore mistakes.
c) Click OK.

When you perform either of these two alternative options above, the system starts refreshing the data as scheduled, and the Configure auto-refresh button changes to the Stop auto-refresh button image. To stop the auto-refresh, click the Stop auto-refresh button or the arrow next to it and click Stop on the auto-refresh menu.
