Storage management is a part of Flow UI. You can access it
Storage in Flow UI’s main navigation.
In the Storage console, you can browse kexes and tables, preview, delete, truncate and copy tables and delete kexes.
To minimize warehouse usage, we do not query the tables every time you
try to access them in the Storage console, but instead cache the storage
tree. If you want to see the most recent changes within the storage,
you have to either refresh the whole storage tree using
Refresh Storage button or refresh parts of the tree by either pushing
Refresh list of kexes or
Refresh tables in <kex> buttons.
If you select a kex in the browser without selecting any of the tables,
you may open
Actions menu to delete the kex.
Once a table is selected, you are presented with table details, such as its creation date, size and row count.
At the bottom of the page there is the table schema with column names and their data types.
Table preview button, you can preview a 100 random rows
from the table.
Actions menu you may copy the table, truncate it (delete all
rows) or delete the table completely.
