Re: Fire and Purge with Idle State

Hi shkob1,

Currently, the idle state retention time is only used for unbounded operators in sql/table-api. The unbounded operators include non-window group by, non-window join, unbounded over, etc. The retention time affects neither sql/table-api window operators nor DataStream operators.

Best, Hequn

Idle state retention time - is it needed at all if im using purge? will it
become relevant only if a session is both never-ending AND never has more
