View and Interact with a Custom Context Table

In the Overview tab of the Context Management service, click the name of a specific custom context table to open a detail page for that context table. The context data contained in the table is displayed. The table columns represent the context table attributes. Each row represents a context data entity.

You can interact with the data in a custom context table detail page in the following ways:

  • Filter the Data – To filter the data in the context table, enter a value in the Search field at the top of the table. You can search for full or partial values from any column. The table will filter to display only the rows that match the search criteria you entered. To remove the filter, delete the search value.

  • Filter Data by Source – If you are viewing the details of a filtered context table, you can also filter the data by the source type. Click the filter icon (icon-filter.png) in the Source column header and select the data source for which you want to view records. You can choose to view records from any of the source context tables or view only manually added records.

  • View Attributes – To view the values for all the attributes of a single data entity, click anywhere in a specific row on the detail page. An Attributes panel opens on the right.

  • Edit the Values of a Record – To edit the values of a single record, click the options icon (icon-options.png) on the far right side of a specific data row and select the Edit option. An Edit Record dialog box opens. Edit the values you want to change and click Save Edits.

  • Delete a Record – To delete a single record, click the options icon (icon-options.png) on the far right side of a specific data row and select the Delete option. When prompted, confirm the deletion.

  • Manage Columns – To configure which of the available attribute columns are displayed and in what order, click Manage Columns in the top right corner of the table. A dialog box opens where you can configure the column display as follows:

    • Remove a column – In the In Use panel, either click the minus icon (icon-remove-attribute.png) or click and drag an attribute to the Available panel.

    • Add a column – In the Available panel, either click the plus icon (icon-add-attribute.png) or click and drag an attribute to the In Use panel.

    When you're satisfied with the column configuration, click Apply. The changes to the column display are saved.

    Note

    If you remove a column from the display, context table records can no longer be filtered based on values found in that column.

  • Delete the Whole Context Table – To delete the entire context table, click the delete icon (icon-delete-table.png) in the top right corner of the page. When prompted, confirm that you want to delete the table. You can opt to remove any custom attributes that are not used in another context table.

  • Edit the Configuration of the Context Table – To make changes to the attributes of a context table, click the edit icon (icon-edit-table.png) in the top right corner of the page. A Configuration panel opens on the right. For more information, see Edit the Configuration of Custom Context Tables.

  • Add Data to the Context Table – To add additional rows of data to the context table, click the plus icon (icon-add-data.png) in the top right corner if page. You can opt to add data by uploading a CSV file or to add data manually.
