Data Sets Browser

The Data Set tab enables you to browse Data Sets, files and directories in this project. It is mostly used as a file browser for the project’s HDFS subtree. You cannot navigate to directories outside of this project’s subtree. For a quick preview of a file, go to the Datasets menu, navigate to a file, right click on that file and choose the Preview option. A pop-up window will appear with a small preview of the file. The picture below illustrates the Dataset Browser with a new sample dataset. You can add new datasets by pressing the Create New Dataset button. A valid data set name can only contain characters a-z, A-Z, 0-9 and special characters ‘_’, ‘-’ and ‘.’ but not ‘__’ (double underscore). There are also reserved words that are not allowed in data set names. A complete list of reserved words can be found in section Data set name reserved words. You can edit the datasets by right clicking on them. A README file is auto-generated for every dataset.
