Viewing nodes in a table

You can select nodes on the graph and view them in a table (grid) so that you can display, search, filter, sort, group, change node or link data and export to a CSV. In the data table, a row represents a node (record) in the graph and the columns display the fields.

To view nodes in a table, do the following:

  1. Select nodes on the graph. In the bottom bar, the entity table or EID associated with the nodes appear as tabs.

  2. Click a tab to open the table.

  • To collapse the bottom bar, click the currently open tab.

  • To sort the records in the table, right-click a column header and select Ascending order or Descending order.

  • To reorder the columns, right-click a column header and select Move left or Move right.

  • To export a CSV from the table, select the records and click Export CSV.

Choosing the columns

By default, the table displays the Selected fields listed in the data model. You can select the columns that you want to see as follows:

  1. Right-click a column header and select Visible columns.

  2. Select the fields you want to view as columns.

  3. Optional: To quickly remove a column, right-click the column header and select Remove column.

Searching and filtering the graph nodes

You can search the nodes and then filter the graph to those nodes:

  1. In a table, in Filter, enter a search term.

  4. Optional: To filter the graph to show only the records you selected, click Make main selection and click Crop.

  2. Select Group column.

  3. Optional: To create a node on the graph that represents a group, select the group and click Make group selection.
