Indicators in the dataset list When you open your list of datasets, you have the following columns and indicators:
  • The quality bar detailing the repartition of empty, valid, and invalid records across the dataset. Hover over each color to access the exact percentage and records number.
  • The rating score on the dataset based on its quality and other personal criteria. The rating score that you see in the dataset list is an average of the scores applied by all the users who have access to the dataset.
  • The Talend Trust Scoreā„¢, represented by the Shield icon, gives you an overall score of the quality and completeness of your dataset. It aggregates several indicators such as the quality, or the presence of a rating score or certification.
Sharing The sharing dialog lets you assign a role to other users when sharing connections, datasets, or preparation folders with other users. The Viewer, Editor, or Owner roles all come with different levels of permissions on the actions that can be performed on shared objects.

The role you have assigned someone can be updated anytime. You can also remove yourself from the list of contributors on a specific shared object.
