What is a dataset?
A dataset is a source of data from your Zuora tenant.
Datasets can expose data from multiple related objects, including products, subscriptions, and customer accounts. Datasets can also expose calculated metrics such as monthly recurring revenue (MRR) net of discounts.
Zuora administrators can create datasets in support of analysts, executives, and other business users. After a dataset has been created, business users can interactively analyze the data that the dataset exposes.
As a Zuora administrator, you can create datasets hat expose only the data that your business users require. If you request data from multiple related objects, Zuora automatically performs the necessary joins and exposes the data in a format that is ready for immediate, meaningful analysis. Your business users do not need to spend time transforming the data or studying the details of Zuora’s object model.
