Find field original name

Is there a way to find the name a field has in the original datasource before it was renamed in the dataprep ?
I have tables with many columns and it would really be helpful

Hi Martin - I don’t think this is possible using the the UI.

Depending on your datasource type you may have an option through the API using DescribeDataSet. A big gotcha will be that the API does not support CSV/Excel.

For some datasources RDS/Redshift you can run this command in CLI which will show you the original column names and the data transforms (renames)


aws quicksight describe-data-set \
--aws-account-id=[account id] \
--data-set-id=[data set id]

Sample Output:
