Manage data tables

Last Updated: Dec 11, 2017

The Manage Data Tables module categorizes data tables and enables management over the information and operations for different tables in various categories, allowing developers to manage their own data tables. On the Manage Data Tables page, you can follow these steps on your tables: setting the lifecycle, managing tables (including modifying the category, description, field, and partition of a table), hiding and unhiding tables, and deleting tables.

Table category overview

My favorite tables

This section lists your favorite data tables. You can also remove the table from your favorite list.

My recently used tables

This section displays the tables that you recently used. You can set the table lifecycle, manage tables (including modifying the category, description, field, and partition of a table), hiding and unhiding tables, and deleting tables. For details, see the Manage tables section in this document.

Individual account table

This section lists the data tables you have created within the organization. In other words, the owner of the tables is the current logon user, you.

Production account table

This section lists the tables with owners configured as Computing Engine Accounts (namely, the production account) with a MaxCompute access identity. The operations available here are the same as those for My recently used tables.

My managed tables

If you are the project administrator, all the data tables in the project spaces you managed are displayed on this page. As an administrator, you can perform various operations on the tables, including modifying the table owner.
