Reshaping Steps

Recipe steps that change the number of rows in the dataset have additional impacts on your dataset and its samples. These reshaping steps include the following transformations:

Samples:

When one of these transformations is applied and rows are removed from your dataset:

  • Any samples generated before the step was added are invalidated and cannot be used.
  • If you edit steps in your recipe before this added transformation, any samples that you generated after the step are invalidated and cannot be used.
  • A valid head sample is always available for use.
