Resource Lineage

Resource Lineage

Understanding Resource Lineage is crucial for maintaining the integrity and reliability of your Hashboard projects. This feature provides a comprehensive view of dependencies among various resources, enabling better decision-making when making changes.

Automatic dependency checks

Hashboard validates dependencies in real-time when you make changes that could impact a dashboard or other resources.

Examples of dependency checks

  • Deleting a measure or attribute used in a saved exploration triggers a warning and shows you which saved explorations would be affected by your change.
  • Deleting a data model that's in use shows all current usages.
  • When triggering a project build preview, downstream impacts of your changes are listed.
