Settings

Access Environment and Dataset Settings through several ways:

  • Dataset Settings button in Home page
  • Select a Dataset by name in the Datasets page
  • Manage Environments button at the top of the colorful Environment list

Use the dropdown window within the Settings Page to navigate between specific Environment(s) and Dataset(s) settings. The tabs in the display change depending on whether an Environment or Dataset is selected.

Environment Settings 

For Environments, the Settings page consists of the Overview, API Keys, and Markers tabs.

Environment Settings are not available if you are a Honeycomb Classic user.

Overview 

In the Environment Overview tab, view and edit the Environment’s description and its associated color.

Though an Environment’s color is selected at creation, the color can be changed at a later time. Select a new choice from a set range of colors in the Color section.

API Keys 

The API Keys tab lists the API keys associated with its Environment. In this tab, you can see each API key’s name, its key value, and what access it controls. Copy the key value in this screen by selecting the copy icon adjacent to the key value.

You must be a team owner to create and edit API keys.

Markers 

The Markers tab lists any Environment-wide Marker and its associated color. Markers display as vertical lines on graphs to mark points in time where interesting things happen, such as deploys or outages.

Modify a Dataset-wide Marker’s color setting by selecting the field under the Color column in the Markers tab. Alternatively, use the Marker Settings API.

Learn more about Marker configuration.

Delete 

In the Delete tab, a team owner can delete an environment. You cannot delete the last environment in your team.

Dataset Settings 

For Datasets, the Settings page consists of Overview, Schema, Definitions, Markers, and Delete tabs.

Overview 

In the Dataset Overview tab, view and modify the Dataset’s Description.

Default Granularity controls the default granularity seen after running a query, as well as the default granularity for this Dataset’s Suggested Queries in the Home page. Choose your Default Granularity from the options in the dropdown list. Queries in this dataset will not drop below the default granularity unless you choose to override it manually when making an individual query. Best practice is to set the default granularity with the interval at which data enters Honeycomb, which prevents the appearance of spiky graphs. For example, if your data enters the dataset at regular 30 second intervals, we recommend setting a default granularity of 30 seconds.

Suggested Queries are used for default Board settings.

This tab also gives information about your Events Retention and Usage, Daily Event Traffic, Event Latency History, and Event Rate.

Schema 

The Schema tab allows you to select whether nested JSON automatically unpacks, and lists the Dataset’s Unique Fields and Derived Columns.

Definitions 

The Definitions tab allows you to indicate which fields in your Dataset have special meaning in Honeycomb. Learn more about Dataset Definitions.

Markers 

The Markers tab lists any Dataset-wide Marker and its associated color. Markers display as vertical lines on graphs to mark points in time where interesting things happen, such as deploys or outages.

Modify a Dataset-wide Marker’s color setting by selecting the field under the Color column in the Markers tab. Alternatively, use the Marker Settings API.

Learn more about marker configuration.

Delete 

In the Delete tab, a team owner can delete a dataset.
