Discover View

Discover View

View tables, manage primary key-foreign key relationships, configure profiles, and update columns for masking in the
Discover
view.
The following image shows the
Discover
view in a Project:
The Discover view contains the Table, Profile, Columns, and Files views. In the Tables view, you can view the name and description of the tables in the source data. The details panel contains the Properties, Columns, and Constraints views. In the Properties pane, you can view general table properties for a selected table. The properties include owner name and table classification. The Properties panel also includes a relationship overview graphic that shows relationships between the selected table and other tables in a source.
The
Discover
view contains the following views:
Tables
View the tables in the data source. Select a table and view the relationship between the table and other tables in the project. View the columns in a table. Define primary key and foreign keys in tables.
You can disable physical primary key columns when you do not need the composite primary keys or entity relationships. In the
Tables | Columns
view, you select a row with a physical primary key and enable or disable the primary key from the
Actions
menu. You can also edit the precision of a source table column based on the values that you need in the target column.
Profile
Define a profile for data discovery. Configure the profile to find columns for data domains and possible primary key-foreign key relationships between tables.
Columns
View the results of a data domain profile. Maintain data domain assignments and define similar column values for value cascades.
Files
View a list of XSD files in the project. Select a file in the list to open the file information in a separate tab. You can perform data subset, data masking, and data generation tasks on XSD sources.
