Dataviews Table

Dataviews appear in the same Project as the experiment that stored the Dataview in the ClearML Enterprise platform, as well as the DATAVIEWS tab in the All Projects page.

The Dataviews table is a customizable list of Dataviews associated with a project. Use it to view, create, and edit Dataviews in the info panel. Dataview tables can be filtered by name or name fragments and / or ID, by using the search bar.

Dataviews table

The Dataviews table columns in their default order are below. Dynamically order the columns by dragging a column heading to a new position.

  • DATAVIEW - Dataview name.
  • USER - User creating the Dataview.
  • CREATED - Elapsed time since the Dataview was created.

Customizing the Dataviews Table#

The Dataviews table can be customized. Changes are persistent (cached in the browser), and represented in the URL. Save customized settings in a browser bookmark, and share the URL with teammates.

Customize any combination of the following:

  • Dynamic column ordering - Drag a column title to a different position.
  • Filter by user
  • Sort columns - By experiment name and / or elapsed time since creation.
  • Column autofit - In the column heading, double click a resizer (column separator).

The following Dataviews-table customizations are saved on a per project basis:

  • Column order
  • Column width
  • Active sort order
  • Active filters

If a project has sub-projects, the Dataviews can be viewed by their sub-project groupings or together with all the Dataviews in the project. The customizations of these two views are saved separately.

Dataview Actions#

The following table describes the actions that can be performed from the Dataviews table.

ClearML ActionDescription
View detailsDataview details, including input datasets, label mapping, augmentation operations, and iteration control. Click a Dataview and the info panel slides open.
ArchiveTo more easily work with active Dataviews, move a Dataview to the archive. See Archiving Dataviews.
CloneMake an exact copy of a Dataview.
Move to projectTo organize work and improve collaboration, move a Dataview to another project.

These actions can be accessed with the context menu (when right-clicking a Dataview or clicking the menu button Menu in a Dataview's info panel).

Some of the actions mentioned in the chart above can be performed on multiple Dataviews at once. Select multiple Dataviews, then use either the context menu, or the bar that appears at the bottom of the page, to perform operations on the selected Dataviews. The context menu shows the number of Dataviews that can be affected by each action. The same information can be found in the bottom menu, in a tooltip that appears when hovering over an action icon.

Viewing, Adding, and Editing Dataviews#

To view, add, or edit a Dataview:

  1. Do one of the following:

    • Create a new Dataview - Click + NEW DATAVIEW.
    • View or edit a Dataview - In the Dataview table, click the Dataview.
  2. To edit sections of the Dataview, follow the steps on the "Modifying Dataviews" page for the following:

    1. Selecting Dataset versions
    2. Filtering frames
    3. Mapping labels (label translation) (if appropriate for the data and experiment)
    4. Label enumeration
    5. Data augmentation (if appropriate for the data and experiment)
    6. Iteration controls

Cloning Dataviews#

Create an exact editable copy of a Dataview. For example, when tuning an experiment, clone a Dataview to apply the same frame filters to different Dataset versions.

To clone a Dataview:

  1. Do one of the following:

    • In the Dataview table, right click a Dataview and then click Clone.
    • If the info panel is opened, click Menu (menu) and then click Clone.
  2. Select a project or accept the current project, enter a name, and optionally enter a description

  3. Click CLONE.

Archiving Dataviews#

Archive Dataviews to more easily manage current work. Archived Dataviews do not appear on the active Dataviews table. They only appear in the archive. After archiving, the Dataview can be restored from the archive later.

To archive a Dataview:

  • In the Dataview table:
    • Archive one Dataview - Right click the Dataview > Archive.
    • Archive multiple Dataviews - Select the Dataview checkboxes > In the footer menu that appears at the bottom of the page, click ARCHIVE.
  • In the Dataview info panel - Click Menu (menu) > ARCHIVE.

To restore a Dataview:

  1. Go to the Dataview table of the archived Dataview or of the All Projects page
  3. Do any of the following:
    • In the Dataview table:
      • Restore one Dataview - Right click the Dataview > Restore.
      • Restore multiple Dataviews - Select the Dataview checkboxes > Restore.
    • In the info panel, restore one Dataview - Click Menu (menu) > Restore.
