A Glossary is a list of terms 🏷️ that are created and tagged to data assets for better organization and faster search.
We don't deny that the task of linking each data asset with its respective glossary terms can become a bit daunting. Hence, to make the process easier and simpler, say hi 👋 to the Atlan Bot 🤖
The Atlan Bot supports your efforts by intelligently linking glossary terms to data assets based on their column names.
Let's see how 👀
The Atlan Bot uses specific algorithms to auto-suggest glossary terms for data assets, and it keeps learning on its own over time.
It maps columns with all business glossary terms created in Atlan. A string search and Levenshtein scoring is used on all string permutations in the column headers and glossary terms. The term with the highest mapping score with a column header gets mapped to that column.
Click on the data table you want to auto-classify from the Discover list.
Click on the "Profile" tab (third tab from the right).
Click the blue button on the right-hand side. As soon as you click it, a configuration setup modal will open up.
Change the configuration if you want to, and click on "Update".
The data quality profile will run and send all recommendations to the "Requests" tab. It will go through the same approval flow as when a user recommends a glossary term.
The veto power still lies with the humans—the bot is just there to assist with the repetitive tasks!
