What are the requirements for dataset column names in the Engine?

This article will detail the requirements for column names in a dataset within the Engine.

In a dataset, the column names must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be unique (column names are case insensitive)
  • Can only contain letters, numbers, and underscores.
  • Must not contain any special characters
  • Must start with either a letter or 1 underscore
  • Must not be an empty string

Tip: When importing new data, the Engine will automatically help to rename any column names that does not meet the requirements. Changed column names are highlighted in blue.
