Rename lets you change the name of a dataset, column, or change the names of all the columns in a dataset to their synonyms.


Rename has several formats:

  • Rename the column <column> to <new name>. Note that you can rename multiple columns in the same step by adding more <column> and <new name> parameters as a comma-separated list.
  • Rename the current dataset to <new name>
  • Rename the dataset <dataset> to <new name>


Rename uses the following parameters:

  • dataset (required). The dataset whose columns you want to rename using their synonyms. Note that synonyms need to be configured using Annotate. Dataset names can contain up to and including 50 characters.
  • column (required). The column you want to rename.
  • new name (required). The new name you want to use. Note that this string cannot contain spaces.


If the dataset is successfully renamed, a the dataset reloads with its new name. You can then refer to the dataset by its new name when you use other skills.

If the column is successfully renamed, a sample of the dataset is shown in the display panel. You can then refer to a column by its new name when you use other skills.

Otherwise, an error message is shown.

To rename both the "PClass" column and the "Name" column in a single step, enter Rename the column Pclass to PassengerClass, Name to FullName.

To rename your current dataset to "MarketingData," enter Rename the current dataset to MarketingData.
