Relationships as Fields

You asked, we listened. Our latest improvement is crafted from the desire to streamline the enrichment experience, making it easier to build, manage, and see important relationships. This capability allows metadata fields to be built using custom relationships between resource types, providing a more intelligent way to manage metadata and inspire users to build relationships. For example, if you cataloged your Teams and Data Products, you might want to create a relationship to show which teams govern which products (screenshot below). Your users might see and navigate to Team resources via Data Products, or vice-versa.

These new types of fields help users see, understand, and navigate relationships and show the knowledge graph at work. This enhancement compliments our flexible architecture that allows you to build custom Types, Fields and Relationships - deciding what to catalog and how best your users might want to navigate the related resources. This feature focuses on the philosophy that there are many kinds of relationships - some of which have an "attribute-like" utility, rather than just a related object. 

You can read more about how you might use this feature in our documentation. This is now available to all enterprise customers using either MDP or Catalog Toolkit for configuration. 

We hope you enjoy the new opportunities this enhancement brings to your catalog.

New collectors for Power BI Report Server and Amazon QuickSight

We’re excited to announce two new collectors: Power BI Report Server Collector and Amazon QuickSight Collector, which gather metadata from these systems and seamlessly bring it into the platform. This metadata helps both technical and non-technical users discover and understand their data quickly, govern their data with greater context, and increase trust in data by providing information about data health and transformations.

Both new collectors are available in Private Preview, please contact your Customer Success Director if you are interested in participating in a Private Preview program. More information is available in our product documentation: Power BI Report Server collector, Amazon QuickSight collector.
