Creating a Workspace

This section explains how to create a new workspace where you can explore and analyze your data, apply transformations, and produce datasets.

You can create multiple workspaces and run analyses simultaneously. Running clusters and analyses in PrL incur costs that accrue against the processing resources provisioned to your organization.

Actions Available on the Manage Analytics Workspaces Page

The Workspace page is where you analyze your dataset. On the Workspace page you can:

  • Open an existing workspace in the current browser window, or in a new tab
  • Save a workspace
  • Add an exploration panel
  • Add a transformation panel
  • View a new dataset
  • View a new schema
  • View statistics about a dataset
  • Save a dataset
