However, because of this reason, there are some restriction on how you can name the pipeline. Following points need to be ensured while choosing a name for your pipeline:-
Considerations for naming data pipelines
Datachannel also creates a temporary table with the following naming convention [prefix] + "_tmp_" + [pipeline name]. For the example above the temporary table would be
fb_tmp_ad_performance_age_gender. This table is used as a staging table for data insert and should not be used by you for any analytical / downstream purposes.
In case you envisage creating multiple reports of this type for different accounts / clients (in case of agencies), you can choose to create a template out of this report. This will allow you to skip selecting all the options when you create a similar report next time. In order to do so, click the Save as a Template button and give your template a name.
