The Data Catalogue helps users track their reports and assets, and displays their relationships on Network Maps.
Reports and objects pulled from their data sources are Assets in the BI Catalogue, but are termed Entities in the Data Catalogue.
Users can find all Entities listed under their Entity type on an Entity Board.
Users can tag information to Entities using Custom Attribute fields and view all of these attached attributes on the Entity Board. The Entity Board can go into Edit mode to edit many Custom Attributes at once, and then provides the option to select filters derived from these attributes.
These Custom Attributes are also visible on the Network Map in a side panel when a user selects individual entities. Network Maps demonstrate connections between Entities and can also be viewed in Hierarchical form.
There are four ways the Data Catalogue incorporates into the BI Portal depending on the user’s application roles.
