Dataset Overview Page#
The Overview page summarizes the dataset’s characteristics, links to dataset management pages, and provides a means to share permissioned access to the dataset’s API endpoint.
Here are the various parts of the overview.
The following fields include an example request and general dataset details.
Example request is a clickable REST endpoint URL that returns the dataset’s last row. It’s a helpful starting point to base data queries on.
Rows: Row count
Dataset size: Storage space used by the dataset, including its indexes
Created on: Dataset creation timestamp
Last updated: Timestamp of last data modification
Detected symbol: Dataset property mapped to IEX Cloud’s symbolic metadata graph. This associates the property’s values with equivalent supported financial identifiers. See Understanding Datasets for complete details.
The Edit button opens a page for viewing and modifying the dataset and its schema.
The Ingest button opens a page for loading additional data into the dataset from configured data sources.
The section’s main area shows an example
GET /data request and the resulting response.
The top of the section has two buttons:
API Docs opens the dataset’s API documentation page.
Share Docs opens a page for copying a shareable API docs URL, including a permissioned, public token for accessing the dataset’s API.
