Profiling Session Step-by-step

    Working with CloverDX Data Profiler consists of these basic steps:

    1. Getting the data. Data sources which you can profile: a file (e.g. flat file, CSV or even multiple files at once), a database table or an Excel sheet (XLS/XLSX).

    2. Specifying metadata. Metadata describe the input data.


    3. Specifying metrics.


    4. Specifying sampling of the input data.

      Data Sampling

      Having performed this and all preceding steps, you have created a new Job (see the section called “Creating Jobs”)

    5. Running the job. This will produce a single Run.

      the section called “Running Jobs”

    6. Observing results of your profiling jobs.
