System worksheets and views

Starting in May 2022, ThoughtSpot rebranded pinboards as Liveboards. For backward compatibility, we currently support internal processes and external methods that use the older naming convention.

Learn about the system worksheets that ThoughtSpot provides.

Most of the monitoring information in System Health comes from system worksheets and views which administrators can view, but not modify. The underlying tables are protected system tables that cannot be accessed directly. However, administrators can create new, custom monitoring reports from the worksheets and views.

To list the system worksheets and views:

  1. Go to the Data tab.

  2. Choose All and All types.

  3. Enter System User in the search field.
