Data refinery preview data set should be controlled and managed by the user

The end user of Data Analytics project in WKC should be enabled to control the Data refinery preview data set interactively and select data source subset, which will produce representative and meaningful output results without the need of running the Data refinery on the full data set.

    We are working on providing more flexibility in creating the sample used interactively. Initially, this will simply be an ability to control how many rows are used, however, will expand to include options like generating a random sample.

    In the interim, a workaround is to create a random or stratified sample of your data set using the sample operation and then use this as the input when creating a refinery flow. Once the flow is created using this sample, the input can be reconfigured to the original data set to run as a job.
