There are different ways to switch between different perspectives in the studio. They are as follows:

To switch between perspectives using quick access icons, do the following:

  • In the top right corner of the studio, select:



    open the Integration perspective where you have access to a set of components and routines dedicated to data integration.

    open the Profiling perspective where you can examine data in different data sources and design data cleansing analyses.

    open the BPM perspective where you can design business workflows using graphical tools.


The availability of the above perspectives in the studio depends on the license you have when you are working in a local project, or on the type of the remote project itself when you are working in remote projects.

It is also possible to use the [Open Perspective] dialog box as the following:

  1. In the top right corner of the studio, click the icon to open the [Open Perspective] dialog box.

  2. Select the perspective you want to access and then click OK.

    The selected perspective opens in the studio and an icon is docked in the top right corner.

  3. Do the same to open other perspectives from the dialog box and add quick access icons for them.

    You can manage the display of the quick access icons. For further information, see Managing quick access icons.

Alternatively, you may switch between perspectives using the menu bar:

  1. On the menu bar, click Window > Perspective.

  2. Select from the list the perspective you want to open in the studio.

    An icon for the perspective is docked in the top right corner of the studio.

It is also possible, using the Window - Show view... combination, to show views from other perspectives in the open perspective.
