How create new dataset with the schema of an other existing dataset ?

I have a CSV dataset with a schema. I want to extend this dataset. So I want to create new dataset with the same columns. How can I do that ? How can I export the schema of the initial dataset ?

Thanks for your responses.

Hi @Val1,

One way you can do this is by creating a managed dataset (+Dataset > Internal > Managed Dataset) as your target dataset and utilizing the Python APIs in a notebook to get the source dataset's schema/set the target dataset's schema. Please see our documentation on get_schema and set_schema.

I've provided sample code below.

import dataiku
client = dataiku.api_client()
project = client.get_project("projectKey")
#get the source dataset schema
source_dataset = project.get_dataset("source_dataset_name")
source_schema = dataset.get_schema()
#set the target dataset schema
target_dataset = project.get_dataset("target_dataset_name")
target_schema = target_dataset.set_schema(source_schema)

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks!

Jordan
