Hi, Dataiku community,

Can we rename any dataset somewhere in the middle of the flow if I were to?

I don't see any options for such. Is it possible or not?

    Hi @PANKAJ

    Is it possible, however not recommended.

    With the dataset open, you have to go to the 'Settings' Tab, and then 'Advanced'. At the bottom you'll se the section "Danger Zone" and the option you are looking for:


    But is dangerous because it can create unwanted problems when running the flow.

    If you really need to change the name, I could recommend the steps shown in the next screencast:

    Hope this helps!
