Asset Status Tag

Mark data assets based on their state of completion and quality

โœ… What are Asset Status Tags?

How many times has someone complained to you that the data is incomplete or has issues? And how many times was your response, "It's still WIP" or "You're using the wrong data, use this verified catalog instead"?

Quite often, right? How convenient would it be if the data could answer these questions by itself!

The Asset Status Tags in Atlan solve for this. The tags help users to quickly identify if the data catalog is ready to use, has some issues, still has work pending, or has been deprecated.

There are 4 status tags that can be given to any data asset:

  1. โœ… Verified

  2. โš ๏ธ Work In Progress

  3. ๐Ÿšซ Issues

  4. ๐Ÿ—ƒ๏ธ Deprecated

โœจ Spotlight: These tags can also be used to quickly filter data assets on the Discovery page. This helps build users' trust for your data assets.
