Creating a dataset
When adding data to InfoSum, you’ll first need to create a dataset. A dataset is the basic repository for the data and any supporting assets, such as permissions. This quick start will explain how to create a dataset.
You can create a dataset using the New Dataset button on the Datasets tab, or use the plus sign shortcut in the top right which appears on every page throughout the Platform. You will then be taken to the form below.
On this page, you will need to:
- Add a Private ID, which will be used to reference the dataset in queries
- Add a Public Name, which will be visible to other users if you send a permission
- Add a Public Description
- Select a project (if required)
- Set an expiry date
- Select the type of dataset (if prompted)
The final step is to select Create, then you will be taken back to the Datasets tab. This is your home for viewing, editing and deleting your datasets.
Now you've created the dataset, we will look at accessing the secure import location called a Bunker.
