Navigating the RAI Console

This short guide outlines areas of the Console, controls, and navigation model.

The RAI Console lets you manage databases, engines, users, and OAuth clients. It lets you upload data directly, explore data, and develop logical models in Rel.


console navigation overview

The RAI Console is divided into six main areas:

  1. Left Sidebar: Navigate between the Databases and Engines pages. With the Admin permission, access the Settings page to manage users and OAuth clients.
  2. Object Tree: List of data, models, and notebooks for the current database.
  3. Model Editor: Manage and edit models.
  4. Top Navigation Bar: Switch between accounts and engines.
  5. Query Editor: Issuing query requests, including queries that update base relation data.
  6. Right Sidebar: Open and close the Model and query editors, and upload data into the database.

When you open the RAI Console, it displays a list of databases that have been added to your RAI account. You can query databases using the Query Editor, develop logical models using the Model Editor, or build data story lines using the RAI Notebook.

When you open a database, it opens up in the same state it was in when you last closed it.
