Groups access management just got easier!

Organization admins will love our new Groups access summary feature that gives them a full view of the various access a Group might have - organization-wide or direct access to collections and data workspaces (datasets and projects).

To find this new view, go to your Organization and click on Members > Groups > Access summary


You will see two sections: 1) organization-wide group access provides the group access to the entire catalog or all of the workspaces beyond the member default and 2) the direct access control section provides a view of the access the Group has to individual collections or workspaces along with the level of access to each. Users can manage direct access from this view without having to visit each collection or workspace.


This new view makes Group access management much easier by providing a one-stop summary of Group access. You can read more about managing Groups in our documentation portal.

At data.world, our goal is to help organizations unlock the full potential of their data. If you're interested in learning more about agile data governance, please visit our website and book a demo or reach out to your customer service representative.  We look forward to helping you manage your data and transform the way your users discover it!

Announcing Lineage for BigQuery (and even more metadata!)

We are pleased to release enhancements to our BigQuery Collector! Now, you can harvest column-level lineage between views and tables, as well as more metadata about datasets, projects, tables, and views.

These enhancements will enrich your data discovery experience, helping you understand your BigQuery data better. For instance, now you can use the Explorer Lineage interface to view lineage relationships between tables and views to track data flows. New metadata highlights include Dataset Labels, Last Modified, Date Modified, Created Date, Table Partitions, and View SQL. 

You can see the full list of harvested metadata in the documentation. As always, please reach out it you have questions!

📣 Announcing our latest search enhancements

Over the past several weeks, we've introduced a set of search IMPROVEMENTS we want to share:

  1. Partial title search. Allows users to search for resources by entering just a portion of the title (3+ characters), making it easier to find the right data.
  2. More related metadata search. From the context of a resource page, this improvement allows users the ability to search and filter related resources based on all the searchable metadata fields of a resource - including custom fields - which means it is now easier to filter large lists.
  3. More camel case support. We have extended camel case support to our relationship filters. This makes it easier to find resources that have complex names that combine uppercase and lowercase letters.
  4. Updated column search cards. This update improves the column search experience by providing users with additional information about columns such as database and datatype, making it easier to understand what each resource is without clicking through and back between the detail pages.

At data.world, our goal is to help organizations unlock the full potential of their data. We're constantly improving search in order to better serve our customers looking to take data management and discovery to the next level.

If you're interested in learning more about our data discovery solutions, please visit our website and book a demo. You can also read more about our search features on the docs portal. We look forward to helping you manage your data and transform the way your users discover it!

Harvest Data Observability with Monte Carlo Collector!

We're pleased to announce our 2nd-generation Monte Carlo collector is now live for beta customers! Monte Carlo is a Data Observability Platform that lets users know about data problems (like broken pipelines), so they can proactively resolve issues. 

The Monte Carlo collector harvests both Incidents and Monitors, which inform users about the issue, when it happened, and where it happened.

For example, users can view relevant information about Incidents and Monitors, like Status, Count, the Date Created, as well as Owner and Severity. You can also open the specific Incident in Monte Carlo directly from the data.world platform. 

You can read more about the newest Monte Carlo collector in our documentation

Existing customers, please reach out to your data.world representative to learn more about becoming a beta user.

Configure browse cards for your organizations

Quick update! The browse card - a configurable, quick navigation card that directs end-users to a curated starting point - was such a hit with our private instance Enterprise customers that we've extended it so you can configure one for each of your Organization profile pages. Woohoo!

Read our Implementation Guide to get started.

Changes to default access for new Organizations


The latest change in a series of updates to access control now provides a more intuitive default experience for the All members group when building a new Organization. The default experience now restricts users from viewing catalog resources or datasets and projects - allowing only view access of datasets or projects shared with the organization or set as Discoverable. This change allows admins to set more granular access through user groups with different tiers of access, leaving the default All members group as the most restricted.

To give members more access, admin users can change the access configuration for the All members group or add members to groups with more access. 


You can read more about our "out-of-the-box" user groups on the Docs Portal.

More Bookmarks!

With our latest release, users are now able to bookmark even more things. Just click on the bookmark icon from search results on the Resources tab or directly on the detail page to create bookmarks for your metadata resources, insights, collections, datasets, projects and more.

As you click on the bookmark you'll see how many other people have bookmarked the page. Find the full list of your bookmarks on your bookmark page and your latest additions on your personal Action Center home page.

Updated documentation portal

We are excited to announce upcoming improvements to our help docs portal, including streamlining and consolidating our product documentation, cleaning up deprecated articles and links, and improving the navigation and search experience!
