Pipeline outputs

Viewing output data

From the Run log use the output selector to navigate to pipeline outputs from either the current run or previous runs.

Filters

Apply filters to the output data preview to understand your data better.

Viewing data from previous pipeline runs

To view outputs from previous pipeline runs, click the run number and browse previous runs. The popup shows the time and status of the run. Selecting a previous run will open the associated run log. From here you can view the validation or mapping reports or use the output selector to view the data.
Exporting outputs
When a pipeline is run it creates output datasets which can be:
Sent to your Data Repo
to be used in other pipelines, to be queried and visualised in Quantemplate Analyse, to be shared within your organisation or extracted from Quantemplate using our APIs.

Downloaded as CSV files.

Shared with other organisations
you belong to within Quantemplate.


  To export datasets:
1.
  Navigate to the run log.

2.
  Click the ‘Export datasets’ button.

3.
  In the popup, the ‘Export to datasets’ tab lists the outputs in your pipeline. In the field underneath each output name, select a location to export to. To overwrite an existing dataset within your Data Repo, select it from the suggested list and press ‘Update’.

4.
  Alternatively, create a new dataset in your Data Repo by entering a new dataset name and pressing ‘Create’.

The pipeline creates cleansed and mapped CSV files which can be sent to your datasets repo by clicking the Export button.
Individual outputs can also be exported to the data repo from the output preview, by clicking on the export/download button.
From here further analysis can be carried out in
Tip
By default, all stage outputs appear in the list of pipeline outputs available for export. Stage outputs which will not be exported can be removed from the list by disabling them in the stage editor. Removing unneeded stage outputs will also accelerate the pipeline run time. See Exporting stage outputs for details.
Downloading outputs
  To download an output dataset as a CSV file
1.
  Run the pipeline.

2.
  Go to the outputs tab.

3.
  Select an output to view via the navigation trail.

4.
  Click the download button.

5.

Extended character set (UTF-8) support may be required if your data contains characters outside the ASCII character set. This is likely to be the case with accented characters, special punctuation or non-Latin alphabets. UTF-8 support will reduce compatibility with Excel and other systems. For advice on opening UTF-8 files in Excel, see here.
Sharing outputs
Output datasets can be shared with other organisations in Quantemplate which you belong to. Whenever the pipeline is run and the output datasets are updated, the other organisation will receive your updated data.
To share output datasets:
1.
  Run the pipeline.

2.
  Click on the export button and export the output datasets to your Data Repo
(see   Exporting datasets).

3.
  In the export popup, go to the share outputs tab.

4.
  Select the organisation you wish to share your datasets with.
5.
  Toggle on the outputs you wish to share.

6.
  To share with more organisations which you belong to, click the plus button.
