DataSets represent the data extracted from a data source; the extracted data is used as the foundation to create visualizations within Domo. The DataSet API enables you to import data from any source as well as export data to any destination. Leveraging the API allows you to not only import your data into Domo, but enables you to automate creating Personalized Data Permission (PDP) policies to restrict access to users or groups within Domo to only view specific data within a DataSet.
DataSet use cases
The DataSet API allows you to extend Domo’s data platform to support multiple use cases:
- Automate external processes to push smaller sets data that occasionally need to be updated into Domo data pipeline
- Export aggregated and transformed Domo data for statistical analysis or any need
- Create user and group access to data within a DataSet through API’s Personalized Data Permission (PDP) policies
- Automate external processes to manage DataSets and update intervals based on retrieving DataSets update information
