The dataset list can be searched, grouped, and sorted by clicking the appropriate icon on the upper left of the list panel.

You can also create a new dataset by clicking the plus icon in the upper right of the list panel.

If a dataset was created or modified by another user and those changes are not visible in the dataset list, clicking the refresh icon will update the dataset list.

Dataset Tools

Clicking on a particular dataset opens it in the main view and gives access to various tabs with information and tools for working with that dataset.

  • Details
    displays dataset metadata such as the resource id, creation and last modification dates, and an activity history log.

  • Schema
    provides a tool with two modes for viewing and editing the dataset’s JSON schema. Users can use a visual editor (“Guided”) to create and edit the schema, or edit the raw JSON via a text editor (“Raw”). Editing modes can be toggled by clicking the appropriate mode button in the upper right of the editor area.

  • Ingest
    allows the dataset to be appended, overwritten, or created by either uploading a file or pasting data in plain text pipe-separated values format (PSV).

  • Peeper Report
    displays general statistics of a dataset and summary statistics and distributions of fields within a dataset.

  • Explore
    allows the user to build a guided query for the dataset. This tool can also prepare selections of a dataset for downloading in a specified format.

  • Browse
    displays the data in a dataset in a tabular format or in raw format as delimited plain text.

In addition to viewing and editing the dataset, operations affecting the entire dataset can be performed with the icons to the far right of the tabs.
