Introduction to the OWOX BI Workspace

What is OWOX BI Workspace

The Workspace is the main interface of the OWOX BI platform. After authorization, you land on this page and start working on the product. First, we suggest you create your new Pipeline, then Streaming, and finally, Transformations.


After setting up everything you need in the OWOX BI, on the workspace you will find all Fully-managed pipelines, Streaming, and Transformations in your OWOX BI project.



How it works

Here you can choose one of two views: Diagram and List. The Diagram view is opening by default. Use this switcher to change the Workspace view.



Diagram view

The Diagram view presents an automatically generated diagram that visualizes the interactive data flow of your project items. This provides a comprehensive overview of your project, allowing you to easily identify and troubleshoot any issues that may arise.

Data flow elements

Depending on the list of configured Fully-managed pipelines, the diagram shows the following elements:

  • Blocks with an advertising service icon and the name;
  • Blocks with a Google Analytics icon and a Web Property name, where costs are imported;
  • Blocks with a Google BigQuery icon and the project's and dataset's names.
  • Blocks with the Web Property name specified in the hit streaming settings.
  • Blocks with the Pipeline title.
