A test deploy will deploy the pipeline with data tracing enabled, and then tear it down automatically. The pipeline will be torn down if it errors, or when it receives the first batch of data, or after 30 seconds of waiting for data; whichever comes first. Any operators with an error will be highlighted, and the data being outputted by each operator can be seen by selecting a given operator. It is recommended that before deploying a new pipeline, a test pipeline is run to ensure correctness or for debugging.
Errors in operators
When viewing data for a given operator, the data being viewed is the data as it leaves that operator. However, when a operator errors the input data is displayed.
