How-to | Add a dataset to the feature store#


Completing this tutorial requires a Dataiku instance, version 11 (or above).

Before you can add datasets to the Feature Store, an administrator must grant you the “Manage Feature Store” permission in Dataiku.

To add a dataset to the Feature Store, you promote it to a feature group, which is the term for a dataset that has been flagged for reuse in other projects and machine learning models.

Sharing will be smoother if you first enable the Quick sharing feature, which allows other users to freely use this object in their projects without requesting permission. If you want users to request permission before using the feature group, you can leave Quick sharing off.

To enable Quick sharing:

  1. From the Flow, select the dataset you’d like to add to the Feature Store, and navigate to the Actions tab of the right panel.

  2. Select Share.

  3. Toggle Quick sharing to On and click Share.

Dialogue box to turn on quick sharing of a dataset.

Now promote the dataset to Feature Group status so it will be included in the Feature Store.

  1. Select the same dataset and navigate to the Actions tab.

  2. Select Publish.

  3. Select Feature Store: Promote as Feature Group; then Promote.

The dataset icon in the Flow now includes two new badges — an arrow and a checkmark ribbon, indicating that it is both shared and has been promoted to Feature Group status.
