Managing Tags

Audience: Data Governors

Content Summary: Tags serve several functions: they can drive Local or Global Subscription and Data Policies, they can be used to generate Immuta Reports, and they can drive search results in the Immuta UI. Governors can create tags or import tags from external catalogs in the Governance UI. Data Owners and Governors can then apply these tags to or remove them from projects, data sources, and/or specific columns within the data sources.

This document outlines step-by-step instructions for creating and viewing tags on the Governance page.

Creating Tags

  1. Click the Governance icon in the left sidebar, and then click the Tags tab.
  2. Click Add Tags in the top right corner.
  3. Complete the Enter tag fields.
