Release note 09.04.17

QUERY VALIDATION

We've implemented a system to help you generate queries with a meaningful sample size of data. For instance, if you add more than three entities (e.g. Case, Sample, File) without applying any filters, the Data Browser prompts you to add one or more properties with specific values to narrow your query before continuing, as shown below.

The Data Browser similarly prompts you to add filters if you create a query that has symmetrical branches without any filters applied, as shown below.

TABLE OF RESULTS IMPROVEMENTS

The table below the Data Browser contains further details about your query. In addition to the List view and Analyticsview, we've introduced a Details view.

The Details view displays details about a selected entity in the context of your query and consists of three panels. The first panel details the inbound and outbound connections for the selected entity in the context of your query. The second panel displays a list of UUIDs corresponding to that entity that match your query. If a specific UUID within the second panel is selected, the third panel displays the metadata corresponding to it.

This new Details view enables you to explore the connections and relations between entities in your query more easily and thus ensure that your query is identifying the data you need to meet your research goals.
