Inputs and roll ups

The Profiling Step might take any number of inputs, which are shown in this panel (if there is more than one input). Additionally, each input can have any number of roll ups assigned to it - ways of grouping the data by specific parameters. For example, roll ups could be used to view data profiles by gender, department, or country.

For more information about adding multiple inputs and configuring roll ups, see Configure the Profiling Step, sections Input category and Roll ups respectively.

For information about how to create a profile, see Create a Data Quality Profile.

Depending on how it was configured, the profile contains a set of statistics, which can be divided into two categories:

  • Column Analyses - Learn how to read Basic, Frequency, Domain, Mask, Quantiles, and Group Frequency analyses.

  • Advanced Analyses - Learn how to read Primary Keys, Foreign Keys, Business Rules, and Dependency analyses.
