The building block of a data model. Each data model is composed of one or more data model datasets. Each dataset within a data model defines a subset of the dataset represented by the data model as a whole.
Data model datasets have a hierarchical relationship with each other, meaning they have parent-child relationships. Data models can contain multiple dataset hierarchies. There are three types of dataset hierarchies: event, search, and transaction.
Data model datasets are listed on the Datasets listing page along with CSV lookup files, CSV lookup definitions, and table datasets.
Prior to Splunk Enterprise 6.5.0, data model datasets were referred to as data model objects.
