We are very excited to announce our newest metadata collection feature: Snowflake Tags & Policy harvesting!
The Snowflake collector can now harvest Snowflake object tags, Snowflake tag-based masking policies, and Snowflake row access policies. This new feature will enhance your data governance experience by allowing you to see if a tag or policy is applied to a table or column coming from Snowflake.
For instance, here is a screenshot from the data.world catalog showing how a Snowflake Tag-Based Masking Policy has been applied to sensitive data columns: routing numbers, bank name, and bank account number. In this view, you can also see the associated Tag (Classification:confidential), and technical details about the Policy, like the Policy Body which explains how the Policy works.
How can you use this new feature? There are 2 optional commands for harvesting this information within the Snowflake collector run. Read more about it in the Snowflake Collector documentation.
Stay tuned for more exciting governance features in the coming months!
