Concept | Searching Dataiku items

See the video version of this article

Dataiku provides multiple ways to search for datasets, recipes, projects, and other Dataiku items.

Data Catalog

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.

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.
