Data Browser#

Data Browser Overview#

The Data Browser provides all your Snowflake Schemas and datasets.

You can fade in or fade out the Data Browser by clicking "<<".

The Data Browser provides the following information:

  • an 'Upload File' button to upload data from your device
  • all of your Snowflake Warehouses, ordered alphabetically
  • all of your Snowflake Schemas and datasets
  • a filter option to browse more specifically through your data

The order within the Data Browser is the following:

  • Snowflake Warehouses are sorted alphabetically
  • Snowflake Schemas are sorted alphabetically
  • tables are sorted alphabetically
  • columns are sorted in the order defined in Snowflake's Schema

Browsing Datasets#

In order to find your needed dataset, you can enter your text in the search bar. Filtering is possible for databases, schemas and tables. Column filtering is not possible.

Find your matching entries listed below the search bar.

More Filtering Options#

You can filter the entries by the following criteria:

  • "All Datasets": all available datasets are displayed
  • "Added Datasets": shows added and in-use datasets for the actual Project

Data Grid#

Data Grid Overview#

The Data Preview are allows you to preview the selected dataset as well as provides the option to download the datasets as CSV.

To explore the columns of a dataset, click on "COLUMNS". This view presents the column names (table schema), their data type as well as metadata (optinal).

To view a data preview of the actual data and get insights like filtering or sorting the values, click on "DATA PREVIEW".

To view the profile information such as column metrics, click on "Profile".

To view and copy the SQL query for views, click on "SQL".

Column Metrics#

You can investigate column metrics in the 'Profile' tab for any data type. For each column a statistic can be shown.

To calculate a metric, switch to the tab "PROFILE". Click on "Calculate" in the required columns. The metric is displayed for the respective column.

Each metric shows:

  • Data type and column name
  • a green loading bar, that visualizes the ratio between available values and missing entries in the column, e.g. you have 500 values but 500 entries are missing, the bar would be half green and half red
  • total number of values and total number of empty entries
  • total number of unique values, if 5,000 values are calculated in the preview, a max. of 5,000 values can be reached. If there are only 5 different values out of 5,000 possible values, the 'Unique' would show '5'

Examples

Data Type Example Description
String This column contains 93 string values in total, 11 unique values and 100% of the values are available. The values are displayed (highest number on the left) in the chart.
Decimal This column contains 93 values in total, 0 empty and 79 unique values. The value for minimum price is 6.7, for maximum 45.4 and an average of 17.13. The values are presented from left to right in the chart (high to low).
Integer This column contains 93 integer values, 0 empty and 21 unique values. the minimal value is 15, maximal is 46 and the average is 22.37.
