What is a pipeline?

Pipelines are the core data exploration feature in Bruinen. Pipelines are step-wise queries that are compiled to SQL to run against the backing dataset(s). Each step represents a single transformation from the input of the previous step, and the output of each step is passed as input to the next step in the pipeline.

See below for the list of supported pipeline steps and their functionality:
