Data type details

CDP Data Visualization provides URL access to ArcViz server objects.

The Admin API uses specific JSON definitions for each Data Type:

  • Users
  • Groups
  • Roles
  • Segments
  • Filter associations API
  • Workspaces

Note that we deliberately chose not to document the details of creating datasets, connections, and visuals. They are all highly complex structures, and should be created directly in the CDP Data Visualization application, through the graphical user interface.

For the GET requests, many returned fields are only informational, and cannot be updated through subsequent POST requests.

Some fields are themselves complex structures that contain sub-fields. The update logic that merges the supplied input fields with the existing data applies to the top-level fields only. For example, the role type contains a privs field, which is a list of individual privilege records. To update the privs field, you must supply the entire list, not merely the individual list element.
