Manage a dataflow¶
A dataflow is the unit of processing a dataset. A single dataflow can be associated with multiple datasets to perform transformations. That is, a dataset must belong to a dataflow for transformation rules to be applied. It forms a relationship such as a “join” or “union” with other datasets.
As shown below, the dataflow details page shows the dependency among all datasets in a dataflow, and the transformation rules applied to each dataset.
The following subsections cover the processes involved in defining a dataflow, such as adding a dataset, editing transformation rules, and creating a data snapshot with transformation results.
The Dataflow menu can be accessed under MANAGEMENT > Data Preparation > Dataflow on the left-hand panel of the main screen.
- Add a dataset
- Edit rules
- Rule types
- Create a data snapshot
