Reproducing the Issue

1. Persist the view and check the run details.

  • 123456 records inserted into the data persistence table for the view "<view_name>". Memory used: xxx GiB.

2. Preview the view in Data Builder check the result, the number of records is different with the number shown in the run details log. Some cases the number is less, some cases the number is 0.


This is because there is a Data Access Control is configured on the view.

For the above example, there are 123456 number of records persisted into the data persistence table for this view. But according to Data Access Control, user does not have the authorization to view any data records. As a result, view preview in Data Builder shows 0 data record.
