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.

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.
