Deleting a dataset

In Cloudera Data Visualization, you can delete a dataset without removing the data from the database.

  1. On the main navigation bar, click DATA.

    The Data view appears, open on the Datasets tab.

  2. Find the dataset that you want to delete, by either scrolling through the list or using the search function.
  3. On the row that represents the specific dataset, click the Delete (trash) icon to delete the dataset.

    In this example, the Cereals dataset has been selected, which contains 1 visual.

    The Delete Confirmation modal window appears.

    It contains information about all related dashboards and linked and unlinked visuals that will be deleted with the dataset:

    • Snapshot with an icon indicating whether the artifact is a visual or a dashboard
    • Title
    • ID
    • Related Visuals / Parent Dashboard(s) list the number of related artifacts and their IDs.
      • For dashboards, Related Visuals include the IDs of visuals that they contain.
      • For visuals, Parent Dashboard(s) include the IDs of dashboards where they appear.
    • Created date
    • Last Updated time period
    • Modified by username
    • Workspace
  4. After you reviewed the listed dashboards and visuals, type DELETE in the confirmation text field, and click Delete.
