Grouping Columns in Visualization

The ability to group columns within the Visualization Data Table makes organizing your data a breeze!

Once your data is in the Visualization tool, you can:

  • click the Settings button in the corner of the Data Table
  • select the Parameters tab
  • click “Add Group” at the bottom
  • give each Group a name
  • drag up to 6 columns into any Group

Comparing Data in Visualization

The “Comparison” tab gives you the ability to see your data (complete with the Group organization, if defined) in a grid or card view.

Note: The Comparison grid view and the Data Table share the same set of settings. So it respects the list of columns you have chosen to display, uses any customized column names, and retains any color rules you’ve defined for the data columns. Use the filters and graphical selection to refine which records are displayed in the Comparison table.

GET Exports API Call

To see a list of all New and Started exports for a specific user, you can now call:

    GET /api/v1/vaults/<vault_id>/exports

This will return an array of all API and user initiated active exports. Once an export is complete or cancelled, it will no longer show in the list.

DELETE Exports API Call

The DELETE Exports API call will now cancel any active data export you’ve submitted via the API.  The syntax is:

    DELETE /api/v1/vaults/<vault_id>/exports/<export_id>

This API call will return JSON indicating a “status” of “canceled”.

    {  "id": 18765',  "status": "canceled" }

Helpful hints:

  • If the “status” is any other value, something has gone wrong when canceling the export.
  • If HTTP code 405 is returned, the export was not in a cancelable state (Note: It may have already been canceled or downloaded).
