Re: Better way to clean up state when connect
you said the Stream B which comes from a file will be updated unpredictably. I wonder if you could share more about how to judge an item (from Stream A I suppose) is not in the file and what watermark generation strategy did you choose?

I tried to use watermark to clean up the state of inactivate ID, but the Stream B updates is unpredictable so I want to keep everything in state until I found the item is not in that file any more.
