Use filters to refine the overview of all your available assets.

You must have access to at least one data lake to search and filter your results. By default, a data lake is already selected for you if you have access to it.

You can further refine your search results using filters as follows:

  • Owner - From all the owner names that appear, you can select the owner to further refine the results and display those search results with the selected owner.
  • Type - Select a database to view all the assets stored in that type of database. By default, only the following options are visible:
    • Hive Table
    • HBase Table

    Additional Type filters can be added by clicking + Add New Value.

  • Entity Tag - Use entity tags to refine your search results. You can add business metadata as entity tags in Atlas and use these tags to refine your search results and view the details of the required data asset.
  • Created Within - You can choose to refine your search results of assets within the data lake to view the data assets created within the last 7 days, 15 days, or 30 days. You can also add custom values such as 5 days or 10 days to view specific information.
  • Created Before - Depending on the time when the assets were created, you can choose to refine the search results and view data assets created before 1 day, 7 days, or 15 days. You can add custom values to view data assets created before the days of your preference such as 8 days or 12 days.
  • Column Tag - You can search for the following type of table assets by tags that have been applied on their children entities, that is, columns or column families using the column tags filter:
    • Hive
    • HBase
  • Glossary - You can filter assets based on business glossary terms. You can search for any asset without any entity type restrictions.

Click Clear for any filter to clear the selection. You can use a combination of filters to view the required data assets.
