New hierarchy-based discovery experience for BI assets
Introducing hierarchical discovery patterns for your Tableau, Power BI, and Looker assets! Atlan now supports a hierarchy-based discovery experience for data source fields and calculated fields for Tableau data sources, columns for Power BI tables, and fields for Looker explores and views.
The following enhancements are currently supported for the above BI assets:
- A new Fields tab in the asset sidebar — similar to the Columns tab for SQL assets.
- A new Field Preview section in the asset profile — similar to the Column preview section for SQL assets.
- Opening a BI field asset in a new tab will lead to a view of the parent asset profile with the child asset displayed in the sidebar.
With these enhancements, users will now be able to view logical parent-child relationships for their BI assets as well as easily discover field assets for their BI data sources for documentation and lineage analysis in Atlan.
Get more context for your BI assets with this enhanced discovery experience — and don't forget to share your feedback!
