The Behavior MetaInfo tool returns pertinent information about installed Behavior Analysis datasets.

Tool Configuration

Choose a Dataset: Select the Dataset to use. Each dataset has its own Profiles and Profile Sets that are specific to the selected clustering system. These datasets require a current subscription and license. Please contact your Alteryx account representative for more information regarding compatible datasets.

For best results, keep your datasets consistent with each Behavior tool. Choosing "Most Recent Vintage" rather than a specific dataset ensures the most current dataset is used and won't require updating your workflow. You can easily specify the dataset in multiple tools at once with the Workflow Dependencies to ensure consistency throughout your workflow.

Set the default dataset from User Settings. Go to Options > User Settings > Edit User Settings and click the Dataset Defaults tab.

Select the MetaInfo to return. Many of the items are specific to the dataset specified.
