Searching metadata tags

The SQL Editor in Hue provides a search text box where you can search on the metadata tags or classifications that are associated with your databases, tables, and columns.

You can search for tags or classifications in either the Hive or the Impala editors.

  1. Go to Query Editor > Impala or Hive.
  2. To locate the tags or classifications in Apache Atlas, in the metadata search box located just to the right of the Query drop-down menu, type a tag: or classification: facet followed by its name. For example, type classification: wine as shown in the following image:

    After you type the search facet and the tag or classification name in the search box, the <database>.<table> where the tag or classification is found is returned. Click the <database>.<table> to view the tags and classifications that have been defined for it.
