Concepts > Workspaces


A workspace is a container that can hold collections, Query Lambdas and other workspaces. In this way, workspaces are analogous to folders whereas collections and Query Lambdas are analogous to files. Every resource must be part of exactly one workspace.

Nested workspaces are accessed by separating their names with dots (“.”), e.g. SELECT first_name, email FROM marketing.leads.web_signups will access collection web_signups in workspace marketing.leads.

If not specified, the workspace will be implicitly assumed as commons. so DESCRIBE users is equivalent to DESCRIBE commons.users.
