Overview

Datasets are the core component of Redivis. Datasets contain various metadata and documentation, as well as one or more tables with data and a versioned history.

All datasets have their own page and are uploaded by either a user or an organization. Datasets can be added to projects to join with other datasets across Redivis.

Some components of a dataset may not be available to you until you are granted access, while others are completely public for you to use.

You can create your own datasets to use in your projects and share with colleagues.

Version

All datasets start with their version tag as v1.0 if they contain data, and v0.1 if they don't. As data is modified over time, a dataset's version will be incremented. Clicking the version dropdown menu in the top right corner will allow you to view this dataset as a previous version, or compare it to another version.

Bookmark

You can bookmark this dataset to keep track of it. All bookmarked datasets will appear in the datasets list of your workspace.

Documentation

Editors can use this space to include long-form information about the dataset. Embedded pictures, links, and headers are all supported. Some parts of the documentation might only be visible to you if you've attained for a certain access level.

The Tables tab contains each table in this dataset, alongside its summary statistics and information.

If you have metadata access to the dataset, you will be able to view the list of variables, variable metadata, and summary statistics on individual variables.

If you have data access to the dataset, you will also be able to see a cells preview of the dataset and run custom SQL queries.

Applying for access

Your current access level to the dataset will be displayed in the box at the right of the dataset page. If you don't have data access to the dataset, you will be able to "Apply for access", opening the access modal where you can view and submit any requirements necessary to gain access.

Adding to a project

If you have data access to a dataset, you will be able to add it to any of your projects (or create a new project with the dataset in it). Click on the "Add to project" at the right of the page to add this dataset to a project.

‚ÄčProjects are a powerful tool that allow you to merge, query, and analyze datasets from across Redivis, all within a collaborative data pipeline environment.

Downloading

You can download this dataset's metadata in the right menu. You will also be able to view API endpoints for this dataset to help you interact with it programmatically.

You can view any table download options by clicking the Download option in the menu on any table. From here, you will be able to download the raw data (requires data access).

Note that some datasets may have additional export restrictions, preventing you from downloading the dataset even when you have data access.
