Using alias

Cloudera Data Visualization provides you with an option to alias fields to remove uninformative field names (or overly informative expressions) from the visual.

To set the alias, follow these steps:
  1. Click the field you plan to modify to open the FIELD PROPERTIES menu.
  2. Under FIELD PROPERTIES, click Alias.
  3. Enter the alias in the text field.
  4. Click REFRESH VISUAL to see the changes.

    Fields that use an alias have a green dot on the Alias menu.

    To remove an alias from a field, repeat the previous steps and clear the text field under Alias.
