Configure casing

Before you load your data, you should consider the type of casing you would like your data to reflect. The case sensitivity for source data strings is preserved in the display. So, the visual display of results is identical to the input case that is loaded.

The casing will remain lowercase in other parts of the application, such as when you ask a question or filter.

It is important to note that string casings aren’t applied globally, but by column. So datasets will have different string casings as long as they’re in different columns. Tables that are already compacted will keep their lowercase format. In these cases, to get the specific string case that you want, you would have to truncate related tables and reload them.

To take advantage of case configuration, you need to have ThoughtSpot Support enable it on your cluster for you. In addition, title casing should be disabled for string casing to properly work.
