When you create a dataset, the system suggests an aggregation type for the columns that contain measures. The aggregation type is based on the column name. If a column name is not recognized, then the default aggregation is set to Sum. The following aggregation types are available when creating a dataset:

  • Sum
  • Average
  • Count
  • Minimum
  • Maximum

The aggregation type that is defined at the time of a dataset creation is a default type for that measure in a visualization. More aggregation types are available when clicking a measure in the widget settings pane. For details, see About aggregation for measures.
