 In the Designer Cloud® application, the WASB browser enables you to browse, specify, and filter the files to which you have access in the HDInsight cluster to which the Designer Cloud Powered by Trifacta platform is connected. 

The WASB browser appears when you choose to import a dataset from WASB. See Import Data Page

NOTE: Interactions with WASB are determined by user permissions and features enabled in the Designer Cloud Powered by Trifacta platform. For more information, see Using WASB.

Figure: WASB Browser

Browse WASB:

Use the links and icons to browse for files and folders in the WASB tree structure. Use the breadcrumb trail to back out.

NOTE: Avoid using the Back button on your browser, which exits the WASB browser without applying changes to your configuration.


  • Click the Plus icon to select all readable files in this folder.
  • Click the text link to open the folder and browse further.

    Tip: When you open a new folder, a reference to it is added to the Path value. You can modify the path value manually, which may be a faster way to navigate up a deep directory structure.

    Tip: Sizes are displayed next to files. They are not displayed next to folders.


Click the Plus icon to select this file.

Specify WASB Path:
