Manage data tables

Last Updated: Mar 26, 2018

The Manage Data Tables module categorizes data tables and helps to manage information and operations for different tables in various categories. This enables the 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 more information, see the Manage tables section in this article.

Individual account table

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

You can search for the tables by table names and filter the tables according to the projects where the tables belong. The operations available here are the same as those for My recently used tables.

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 such as modifying the table owner.
