Event Property Catalog

Similar to the Event catalog the property catalog helps you to track and to document the properties of all events in your data warehouse.

The event properties are added and removed right after you add or remove an event table. The stored event properties in the catalog cannot be crated or removed manually.

Use cases

Maintaining the display name and the description fields of the event property records can help you to

  • map the technical abbreviations and raw property names to human readable labels

  • explain the meaning of an event property with a description

All features

Listing event properties in the catalog

The Events properties tab on the catalog page will list the stored event properties in the catalog of the selected workspace.

The table contains the following columns:

  • Property name: This is the column name of the event data table. Nested data structures (eg. struct, json) are represented in the <column name>.<field key> format.

  • Display name: the event property will be referenced with this value on the explore page, charts, tooltips, etc...

  • Description: this value will be shown as a description on the explore page

  • Events: list of the events having a property with this name. Click on the link to navigate to the Event catalog page with a predefined filter showing the clicked event. Only the first 7 events are listed.

You can filter the table by using the 'Select an event' dropdown or using the free text search input filter. The list of the event property catalog table will be updated while you are typing.

To clear all filters click on the 'Reset filters' link.

Some workspaces may have a lot of event properties. Use the pagination to browser all of your events.

Updating display name, description

To change either the display name or the description of an event property catalog record just click into the input field and enter the desired value. The changes will be saved right after you stopped typing. Errors will be shown on the top of the page.
