Data Explorer

Data Explorer enables users to easily validate their data and quickly build their Process Query Language (PQL) queries. Data Explorer is an asset in Studio.

As the main target audience for the Data Explorer are Data Analysts and Engineers, it is only visible inside Studio. Business Users can’t access it in Apps. If you’re a Data Engineer, Data Explorer allows you to validate data in a Data Model and run a quality check on it before you pass it on to your Data Analyst. If you’re a Data Analyst, Data Explorer can help you get a thorough understanding of your data before you start building automations and dashboards.

Data Explorer lives on top of a Knowledge Model, so you can easily save KPIs, filters and records to your Knowledge Model.
