Specifying default aggregation field for a dataset in NLS
In Data Visualization, you can specify which field's values report the default aggregation.
When a search phrase does not specify an aggregate measure, Data Visualization reports results of a default column as an aggregate. In the majority of cases, this default column is Record Count, a default aggregation measurement generated by the system.
In this example, inspection_score is selected to illustrate this functionality.
- Navigate to the Fields page on the dataset page.
Click Edit Fields.
Click Edit Field for the field that you want to use as
Choose a Default Aggregation type from the drop-down
- Click APPLY.
- Navigate to the Search Modeling page.
Select the Default Aggregation Field from the drop-down
- Click SAVE.
If you type 'inspection score' in the search bar you get an average score as a result.
