Managing a transformation dataflow

This part covers the processes needed for data transformation such as adding a dataset, editing transformation rules, and creating a data snapshot with transformation results.

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.
