Create a Workspace

The workspace is where you organize, analyze and present data. Before you load any data from any source (data warehouse, CSV) into GoodData, you must create a workspace.

Each workspace should correspond to a specific set of unique data. For example, if you have four sets of data from four different customers that you plan to create analytics for, you should create a workspace that corresponds to each customer.

Finding Your Workspace's ID

Each workspace has its unique workspace ID. Depending on your workflow, you may be prompted to enter your workspace ID to accomplish a task.

To access your workspaces and find their workspace IDs:

  1. Click your name in the top right corner. 
  2. Click Data Integration Console.
  3. Click Workspaces.
  4. Click the workspace that you want to use.
    The Workspace ID displays.

Tip: Workspace ID is also a part of your workspace's URL, for example, https://secure.gooddata.com/admin/disc/#/workspace/example12345678987654321.

When working in GoodData, you will be asked to use your domain URL or the workspace ID of a workspace. We suggest that you note them down. For more information about using a workspace ID, see Find a Workspace ID in the primary GoodData documentation.

If you require an authorization token, see Find the Workspace Authorization Token in the primary documentation.
