๐Ÿ—ƒ๏ธIdentifying datasets dependencies

Using dataset dependencies is a great way to:

  • Understand the impact of an action on a dataset (edit, delete, duplicate...) on other datasets and visualizations

  • Navigate between depending datasets

  • Identify unused datasets (not tied to any visualizations) to clean them

To see dependencies on a dataset, check the dependency column within the dataset list in the DataHub, Dataset section.

For a given dataset you will find the depending:

  • Datasource(s): connector or files used by the dataset or a parent dataset

  • Parent dataset(s): dataset(s) used to create this dataset or another parent dataset

  • Child dataset(s): dataset(s) created on top this dataset or another child dataset

  • Home or stories: home tiles or story charts using this dataset or a child dataset
