Associate classifications with entities

  1. Select an entity. In the example below, we searched for all hive_table entities, and then selected the "tbl_privs" table from the list of search results. To associate a classification with an entity, click the + icon next to the "Classifications:" label.
  2. On the Add Classification pop-up, click the classification selection box, then select the classification you would like to associate with the entity. You can filter the list of classifications by typing text in the selection box.
  3. After you select a classification, the Add Classification pop-up is redisplayed with the selected classification.
    • Select the Propagate checkbox to add the classification, along with any associated attributes, to all downstream entities.
    • Select the Apply Validity Period checkbox to limit the classification assignment to a specified time period. Click Add Validity Period to specify additional validity periods.
    Click Add to associate the classification with the entity.
  4. The new classification is displayed next to the "Classifications:" label on the entity page.
  5. To edit a classification association, select the Classifications tab on the entity page, then click the Edit symbol for the classification.
  6. To remove a classification from an entity, click the x symbol on the classification label, then click Remove on the confirmation pop-up. This removes the classification association with the entity, but does not delete the classification itself.

    You can also select the Classifications tab on the entity page, then click the Delete (trash can) symbol for the classification.

  7. You can also associate a classification with an entity by clicking the + symbol for the entity in the Classifications column in a list of search results.
