Data Set Details View
To see the content of the data set the user will open
Data Set Details View, that contains
Data View section. If no reporting plugin has been configured as a
Smart View will preset the content of data set.
If there is only one file
/ directory in a directory listing of selected data set, this directory will be drilled in without the need of user interaction. If, for example the data set consists only of one directory
original/, the viewer will automatically navigate to it. If in
original/ there is only one file
original/dataset.tsv, then the content of this file will be shown. If, on the other hand, the directory
original/ contains 2 files
original/dataset2.tsv, then the listing of directory
original/ will be shown. That is: the viewer will automatically drill in as long as there is only one choice.
Smart View with Main Data Set
OpenBIS administrator can specify a
main data set file pattern for each data set type. If the specified pattern resolves to exactly one file for given data set, then this file is shown as the
main content of the data set and will be shown automatically as the "Smart View" of a data set.
main data set pattern for given data set type
T, go to
Data Set->Types->(select T)->Edit->Main Data Set Pattern. It can be defined as a regular expression (e.g.
regex:.*\.png) or as a simplified regular expression (e.g.
*.jpg). To make resolving
main data set faster,
Main Data Set Path can be defined. As a result, only files matching given path will be considered while looking for a
main data set.
Main data set pattern may also be used by the the reporting plugins (like TSV Viewer), helping them decide which file should be used to create the report.
