Ability to View Fields

    Hi Dave,

    When there are records available at a node's output pin the Data Viewer shows the fields at an output pin and the corresponding data type. Currently (at Dataverse 3.1.6) you cannot view the metadata at an output pin when there are zero records. This will be available in the next release.

    If you want programmatic access to the metadata, the Get Metadata node allows you to obtain the metadata for the output data set of a preceding node. You can also access the metadata within a Transform node, see the Python API help text in the Python scripting > API and script bindings section of your installation's Help or online here.

    Regards,

    Adrian

    Hi Adrian,

     

    Thanks but using the data viewer you get the fields spread across the display along with the data rather than a concise drop down list as before when this feature was selected. It is very difficult to get a snapshot of the total breadth of fields available in this way,

    For example, it is very difficult currently to compare the fields of two input pins joining in a cat to determine if there are subtle differences between the types causing the cat to fail.

    Is there a road map for having this functionality added to Data3Sixty? We have clients that have also asked about viewing the fields on an output pin similar to the functionality shown below.

    Yes this is a roadmap candidate for later this year.
