1010data Insights Platform file structure

The DataBlazer command line tools all require an understanding of the basic file structure in 1010data Insights Platform.

TenUp, TenDo, and Data Hauler require that you have an understanding of the file structure of 1010data Insights Platform. The commands all require a path to a 1010data Insights Platform table or directory.

For example, part of the TenUp command is identifying the complete path and name of the new table to be created in 1010data Insights Platform. 1010data Insights Platform tables are expressed as follows:

pub.demo.retail.item

where pub is a top-level parent folder, demo is a subfolder of pub, retail is a subfolder of demo, and item is the name of the table. Each directory level is designated by a period (.).

In the 1010data Insights Platform Object Manager, you can view the graphical representation of pub.demo.retail.item:

Note that the title of the table in the Object Manager differs from the name of the table. In this case, the table's title is Sales Item Detail, while the table's name is item. Names are unique identifiers for directories, tables, and columns. They must be lower case, begin with an alphabetic character, and are restricted to alphanumeric characters and underscores. In the command line tools, you always use the table's name. The internal file structure of the selected table is displayed on the lower left corner of the Object Manager window.

In order to create a new table in the pub.demo.retail directory called newtable, you would identify it using the full path, as follows:

pub.demo.retail.newtable
Note: You must have the appropriate permissions to upload to the folder where you're attempting to save your new 1010data Insights Platform table. You can check your permissions through the 1010data Insights Platform user interface. See View object information for more information.
