Create a field viewer

You can open a field viewer as a callout from a dependency map or as a standalone visualization from the Admin menu.

Create a field viewer from a dependency map

When you open a field viewer from a dependency map (as shown in Opening Field Viewers ), the viewer is populated automatically based on the log source, transformation, or dimension that you right-click. For a log source or a transformation, the fields in the viewer are inputs or outputs of the log source or transformation. For a dimension, the fields are inputs of the dimension. You can add and remove fields as desired.

Create a field viewers as a standalone visualization

When you open a field viewer as a standalone visualization, you can create a Log Processing Field Viewer or a Transformation Field Viewer. The viewer is blank, and you must add the desired fields to the viewer. For a Log Processing Field Viewer, you can add fields from the Log Processing.cfg file or any Log Processing dataset include file. For a Transformation Field Viewer, you can add fields from the Transformation.cfg file or any Transformation dataset include file.
For more information about configuration and include files, see the Dataset Configuration Guide .

Add and remove a field

To add a field to a field viewer
  • Right-click within the field viewer and click Fields > < field name > > < instance > .
    -or-
  • Right-click within an existing column in the field viewer and click Fields > < field name > > < instance > .
Field name refers to the field’s name, and instance refers to where in the dataset configuration the field is used, such as a dataset processing stage or a transformation. Some fields are used in multiple places within the dataset configuration (for example, a field can be modified by multiple transformations), so you must select which instance of the field to add to your field viewer.
In the list of available fields, an X appears to the left of any field already displayed in the viewer.
To remove a field from a field viewer
  • Right-click within the column for the field that you want to remove and click Remove Field .
