Dataset properties

The dataset definition and properties can be checked at any time in the dataset properties panel.

Information noteNote: This feature becomes available for Talend Cloud Pipeline Designer and Talend Cloud Data Preparation users when Talend Cloud Data Inventory is enabled for the account.

The dataset properties can be accessed from the following locations:

  • From the dataset list:
    Dataset list showing a selected dataset with the 'Edit this dataset' option highlighted.
  • From the dataset detailed view:
    Properties of the 'Aircrafts' dataset.

This page is a direct way to check, or modify some fields that have been filled during the dataset creation, and that need to be updated.

The properties that are available in the form depend on the dataset type, and can include for example:

  • The name of your dataset
  • The input of your test datasets
  • The record and field delimiter, enclosure, and escape character, or encoding of a CSV file
  • The table and query for database datasets
  • The Salesforce modules, columns, and conditions
  • The HDFS URL

You can click the View sample button to preview a few records of the new sample before validating and generating it.
