Data sets

Data sets let you document and track data lineage, ensure data integrity, and allow 3rd parties to write their insights securely back to a Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) project.

Data sets group and track data by its source. For example, a data set can contain all work orders originating from SAP. Typically, an organization will have one data set for each of its data ingestion pipelines in CDF.

A data set consists of metadata about the data set, and the data objects that belong to the data set. Data objects, for example events, files, and time series, are added to a data set through the dataSetId field of the data object. Each data object can belong to only one data set.
