Why is Pivot missing from the Splunk menu?

Explorer

I downloaded Splunk on my laptop (Windows 10).
The pivot menu is missing. Instead there is a dataset link.

Does it need to be turned on somewhere?

You navigate to Pivot through the Datasets page or through the Data model listings page under Settings. See Introduction to Pivot in the Pivot Manual for the details.

thanks, Yes I got a good view of pivot, I can access it from data model but, it does not explain why I cannot see in the top menu beside report. It was always there before, during training. is this because this is the latest 6.5?

See also Dataset types and usage in the Knowledge Manager Manual.

Data model objects are now classified as a type of dataset. You can open any data model dataset in Pivot from the Datasets listing page (which replaced the Pivot page).

If your search does not contain any data, the pivot icon will not be available.,if your search does not contain data, the pivot icon will not be available.
