Note

This button is only visible if there are no fields selected. If you have selected fields, the Generate Dashboard button will be visible in its place.

Auto select fields

Siren Investigate begins testing the fields with each field being analyzed for relevance against a number of heuristics, for example, whether all values are unique - which indicates a potential ID field and unlikely to be relevant for visualizations.

Auto select report.

After all the fields have been analyzed, a test report is displayed.

Auto select report.

This report shows all the fields in the Discover data, which fields are selected as most relevant, the field type, the visualization selected for that type, the relevancy score and any notes on why the field was or was not selected as a relevant field.

You can add and remove fields you would like selected using the check boxes on the left.

When you are ready, click Ok to select the fields.

After the fields have populated the Selected Fields list, you are ready to generate a dashboard.
