Examplesedit

Create a data view with a custom title:

$ curl -X POST api/data_views/data_view
{
  "data_view": {
     "title": "hello"
  }
}

Customize the creation behavior:

$ curl -X POST api/data_views/data_view
{
  "override": false,
  "refresh_fields": true,
  "data_view": {
     "title": "hello"
  }
}

At creation, all data view fields are optional:

$ curl -X POST api/data_views/data_view
{
  "data_view": {
      "id": "...",
      "version": "...",
      "title": "...",
      "type": "...",
      "timeFieldName": "...",
      "sourceFilters": [],
      "fields": {},
      "typeMeta": {},
      "fieldFormats": {},
      "fieldAttrs": {},
      "runtimeFieldMap": {}
      "allowNoIndex": "..."
    }
}

The API returns the data view object:

{
    "data_view": {...}
}
