Working with Tokens

Tokens

Tokens are parameters or variables which act as containers for data. Tokens can be categorized into Global or Local and can be used across different contexts in the application. Global Tokens, are automatically generated and available in all sections of the application. Local Tokens are defined by the context in which they are generated and are available in specific sections of the platform.

Types of Tokens

System Tokens: Standard and provided by the system.

User-Defined Tokens: Custom tokens defined by users in the context they are in.

Data Tokens: Automatically generated from the rows/columns within a dataset and used to reference values from the data.

Metric Tokens: Automatically generated from the metric attributes such as value, threshold, comparison value.

Tokens Suggestion Box

From this box you can also access the Tokens Management Modal by clicking on Add/Manage Tokens
