Table management

Last Updated: Apr 26, 2017

Manage Data Tables categorizes data tables and enables management over the information and actions for different tables in various categories, allowing developers to manage their own data tables. On the Manage Data Tables page, you can perform the following actions on your tables: setting lifecycle, managing tables (including modifying the table’s category, description, field, and partition), hiding tables/unhiding tables, and deleting tables.

Introduction of table category

My favorite tables

This section displays the list of favorite data tables of the current user. You can also “Remove” a table from the list.

My recently used tables

This section displays the recently used tables of the current user. You can perform table lifecycle settings, table management (including modifying the table’s category, description, field, and partition), hiding tables/unhiding tables, and deleting the table’s operations here. For detailed operation descriptions, see the “Manage Tables” chapter.

My tables

This section lists the data tables that the current user has created within the organization. In other words, the tables with the current user as the Owner.

You can perform fuzzy searches for tables by searching table name or project. The operations available here are the same with those for “My recently used tables”.

Tables of the production account

This section lists the tables with owners configured as “Computing Engine Accounts” (that is, the production account) with an ODPS access identity. The operations available here are the same with those for “My recently used tables”.

My managed tables

If the current user is a project administrator, all the data tables in the projects managed by the user will be displayed on this page. The administrator can perform various operations on the tables, including modifying the table owner.
