Chapter 5. Managing the Atlas Business Taxonomy (Technical Preview)

The taxonomy feature in Apache Atlas enables you to define a hierarchical set of business terms that represents your business domain. You can then associate these taxonomy terms with the metadata entities that Atlas manages. This hierarchical business catalog makes it easier to organize and discover data stored in Hadoop.


The Apache Atlas Taxonomy feature is a Technical Preview and is considered under development. Do not use this feature in your production systems. If you have questions regarding this feature, contact Support by logging a case on our Hortonworks Support Portal at
