Dictionary

Learn how to manage the data available in Kubit

Updated over a week ago

What is Dictionary?

Within Kubit you are able to analyze data shared from your warehouse, but where can you see all data that's available? Look no further than Dictionary.

In Dictionary you can see and manage:

  • All Events shared with Kubit

  • All Fields shared with Kubit

  • Saved items like Virtual Events, Filters, Measures and Binning

All items within Dictionary are separated by Schemas within Kubit. A Schema is the collection of data you are able to analyze together. Think of them like projects within your warehouse.

Rename Items in Dictionary

If events or items need to be renamed you are able to do this directly from Dictionary. Fields are currently not able to be renamed as their mapping is integral to Kubit's functionality.

Simply click the Name of the item you want to change the name of and type in the new name.

Once you rename something and the old name is being used on your report you must remove the old named item and re-add the renamed one before you can execute.

Update Descriptions from Dictionary

You are able to modify Event, Measure, Virtual Event or Saved filter descriptions directly in the Dictionary UI! Simply click the Description field and update the information as needed.

If you are sharing your Event Descriptions via your Cloud Data Warehouse you will not be able update them via the UI so we preserve the source of truth.

Virtual Events, Filters and Measures will be editable in the UI however.

See Descriptions in the Report Builder

You'll see those newly added descriptions in the Report builder when you hover over those items. This is great for adding context and confidence to end users and making sure they use the correct item in their analysis.

In order to modify descriptions you must have 'Edit' permissions on the object. I.e. if you try to update a Virtual Event but don't have permissions to edit them you will not be able to.

Tag Items in Dictionary

In addition to adding descriptions of your data items directly from the Kubit UI, you are now able to categorize your data to make discovery easier for your users. All of these actions can be performed in the Dictionary section of Kubit.

In Kubit you're able to add tags to:

  • Events

  • Fields

  • Measures

  • Filters

  • Virtual events

Tags are used as natural ways to group items into similar categories. An item can have multiple tags, think of it like adding a hashtag to a social media post.

Only users with Tag permissions are able to create or modify Tags. Kubit will assign Tag permissions to Admin and Governor roles. All users will see Tags.

Here is an example with some events:

Where Do I See Tags in Kubit?

Once you've applied your Tags to the items available in Kubit your organization will see these as groups of Events, Fields, Measures etc. in the selection widget.

Now users can see your data grouped into logical tags and better communicate how this data relates to your use cases, features and KPIs.
