Concept | Searching Dataiku items¶
Dataiku provides multiple ways to search for datasets, recipes, projects, and other Dataiku items.
The Data Catalog is the recommended way to search for datasets in Dataiku. In the Data Catalog, which is in the Applications menu, you can find curated data collections, view information about datasets, reuse them in your own projects, and import tables from external connections.
On the top right of your Dataiku instance, the Global Search bar enables you to quickly find and navigate to many different types of Dataiku elements. It searches across several sources including help pages, recent items, screens and settings within the product, and datasets.
After entering your search keywords, you can view and filter results in three categories: Dataiku items, Navigation, and Help topics.
Within DSS items, you can filter by type of item — such as dataset, insights, projects, recipes, and statistics worksheets — or by projects, tags, or users.
In Navigation, you can view administrative settings such as plugins. In Help topics, you can find and filter reference documentation, tutorials, and other resources.
Search DSS Items¶
Search DSS Items, found in the Applications menu, is another way to search across projects and data sources in Dataiku. Search DSS Items allows you to explore DSS items in further detail than you can through the Global Search bar.
To manage search results, you can sort or apply filters by type of item, associated projects, tags, and contributors. Select any item to view details such as projects, tags, and schema. Click on an item name to go directly to that item.
In this lesson, you learned how to search for assets in a Dataiku project by using the Global search and the Catalog. Continue getting to know the basics of Dataiku by learning about collaboration.
