A feed brings data or web content in from a defined connection. For edgeData, some feeds parse data structures in order to bring in a tabular dataset.
Data Parsers are used within Feeds to parse document data such as CSV, JSON, XML, etc. These data parsers transform document data into a tabular data set which can then be used in visualizations. The following data feed types are available:
Downloading Data Sets
When working with Data Feeds and Data Transforms, the preview step will expose a Download option. This option will download a .csv version of the current data set.
Each of the Data Parsers also have an option to download raw data (a Download Raw button appears adjacent to parsing configuration). This downloads the unaltered raw document collected by the feed, which is sometimes useful as a reference while devising the parsing configuration.
Date values are stored in epoch time in ms on the server. When downloading a dataset, users can opt to convert date values to a different format so that it is easier to read. This is achieved using the Date Format option in the Save Dataset dialog.
