What is a Dataflow Automation RecordSet?
RecordSets are storage locations for data saved within Dataflow Automation. These RecordSets and the actions associated with them are the foundations Dataflow Automation.
Each RecordSet should be meaningful and serve a purpose, but they are not bound by any specific table structure.
Recordsets have a few direct actions including those shown in the screen shot below.
Recordsets can feed data into other Recordsets as shown below.
PLEASE NOTE: The most common use case will include a filter or aggregation setting on the secondary Recordset.
As an example, you may have weather data and metrics on the number of times the coffee machine was used at work stored in the same RecordSet. The structure of the weather data doesn't match the structure of our coffee machine data, and that's OK.
Dataflow Automation is designed around the principle of unstructured data.
