Create a dataset#

To create a dataset:

  1. In the left navigation bar, go to Search Search icon > GO TO SEARCH AND BROWSE > Datasets.

  2. Select Create dataset + in the top left.

  3. In the Create dataset view, under Dataset name, enter a name for the new dataset.

  4. Select the Dynamic checkbox to create a dynamic dataset. If you leave it deselected, the created dataset is static.

  5. From the Workspaces drop-down menu, select one or more workspaces to include the dataset in. To remove a selection, go to the item(s) you want to remove, and click the cross icon .


    When you manually create a dataset, you must assign it to a workspace.

    You cannot create datasets that do not belong to any workspaces.

  6. To store your changes, click Save; to discard them, click Cancel.

    To access additional save options, click the down arrow on the Save button:

    • Click Save and new to save the current data or configuration for the item you are working on, and to create a new item of the same type right away.

      For example, a new dataset, feed, policy, rule, task, or workspace.

    • Click Save and duplicate to save the current data for the item you are working on, and to create a new prepopulated copy of the same item, which you can use as a template or a blueprint to speed up repetitive manual work.

By default, new datasets are static.

  • To create a dynamic dataset, select the Dynamic checkbox, and specify a valid search query string in the Search query field.

    See Search query syntax.
