Mapping properties

Mappings#

Models have mappings that let the system understand the data in a better way. It's basically a list of string to dimension pair as follows:

mappings:
event_timestamp: occurred_at # dimension name
user_id: anonymous_id

event_timestamp:#

If this model is a time-series data, you can set the value that points to a dimension with the timestamp type, and the Explores will have a date picker and enforce the user to set the value of the date picker in the UI.

user_id:#

If your model represents user data such as a customer event type (ex: pageview or transaction), you can set the mapping dimension the unlock features such as funnel and retention explores.
