Combine all your forces to make your data profile as rich as possible!
Metadata is crucial to understand the context behind the data. All the meta information enriches the data asset and makes it more useful.
Who has the most information about the data? The person who is using or working with it the most. That's why crowdsourcing metadata is crucial to democratize the data initiatives in any organization.
Atlan allows users to suggest glossary terms for a data asset, based on their know-how of its usage inside the organization.
However, these suggestions can be either approved ✅ or disapproved ❌ by the Admin or Steward.
A user can request to add a glossary term by following a few easy steps.
This option is below the TERMS section on the data asset's preview page.
Select the terms you want to recommend, and click the blue "Request" button.
You can check all your requests under the "My Requests" tab on the user profile page.
