Managing Datasets

Creating Datasets

  1. In the Datasets page, click the Create new button. The Create new dataset page is displayed.
  2. Enter a dataset name.
  3. Optionally, enter a description for your dataset.
  4. Click Create. The new dataset is created and displayed, ready to receive its content.

Uploading folders

A dataset can also be created by uploading an entire folder with its contents.

  1. In the Datasets page, click the Upload folder button. The Upload folder page is displayed.
  2. Click Browse for folder. A file explorer window is displayed.
  3. Select a folder to be uploaded as your new dataset and click Upload. Make sure the folder is unzipped. The file explorer window is closed.
  4. Optionally, back in the Upload folder page, enter a description for your dataset.
  5. Click Upload. A new dataset is created, containing all the files within the selected folder.


    Important:

    Please note that the following characters in files names are not supported:

    [ ] \)\) / : * ? " < >

    The following keywords are also not supported:

    batch, other, ignore

    Attempting to upload a folder with file names that have these characters will fail on those files.

Editing Datasets

You can edit a dataset's name or description along with its contents from the Datasets > [Dataset Name] page, by clicking Edit dataset.

Make Datasets public/private

You have the possibility to make a Dataset public. Doing so, the Dataset will be accessible via an endpoint (protected with an API Key) from outside of UiPath environment. This means that you can call it without the need to go through a robot connected to the specific tenant.

To do that, select Edit dataset or Create new dataset and select the desired option for the Make dataset Public field.

Deleting Datasets

You can delete an existing dataset from the Datasets page, by clicking the three dot button next to the desired dataset and selecting Delete.

Note: A dataset can only be deleted if it is not currently being used in an active pipeline.

Managing data within Datasets

Once a dataset is created, you can add files and folders to it. Data within a dataset can be later deleted or downloaded.

Uploading files

  1. In the Datasets page, select a dataset. The Datasets > [Dataset Name] page is displayed.
  2. Click the Upload files button. The Upload files to [Dataset Name] page is displayed.
  3. Click Browse for files. A file explorer window is displayed.
  4. Select one or more files to be uploaded into the selected dataset and click Open. The file explorer window is closed.
  5. Back in the Upload files to [Dataset Name] page, click Upload. The file(s) is/are added to the dataset.

Uploading folders

  1. In the Datasets page, select a dataset. The Datasets > [Dataset Name] page is displayed.
  2. Click the Upload folders button. The Upload folder to [Dataset Name] page is displayed.
  3. Click Browse for folder. A file explorer window is displayed.
  4. Select a folder to be uploaded into the selected dataset and click Upload. The file explorer window is closed.
  5. Back in the Upload files to [Dataset Name] page, click Upload. The entire folder is added to the dataset.

Deleting files

Files within datasets can be deleted one by one by clicking three dot button next to the desired file and selecting Delete.

To delete multiple files at once, select the check boxes next to them and click Delete selected items.

Selecting multiple files and then clicking on three dot button next on a single file will only delete that file.



Downloading files

Files within datasets can be downloaded individually by clicking the three dot button next to the desired file and selecting Download.

You can also download all the files within a dataset by clicking Download Dataset.



Note: Clicking on Download Dataset triggers a download request. It takes a few minutes for the packaged to be ready for download. When the package is ready, you can download it from the Export tab. You can also check the status of the request in the Export tab.


The download-ready datasets are automatically deleted after seven days.
