Setting a Row Identifier in the Socrata Data Management Experience

When using the import and edit experiences, Row Identifiers can be set while in a draft of a dataset.

To get started open a revision and select 'Edit' from the action bar, from there, navigate to Review Data:

From the dataset preview, select a column you are looking to set as a row identifier by opening the menu dropdown and clicking the option. 

NOTE: Date column types cannot be used as a row identifier.

Once that is complete an ID icon will appear next to the column data type:

If desired, you can also hide the row identifier column through the same menu dropdown you used to set it.

Finally, update or publish the draft and the dataset will now have a row identifier!
