Azure Purview is unified data governance solution to maximize the business value of data. Using Azure Purview, you can create an up-to date Data Map using automated metadata discovery including technical metadata and classifications. The metadata can then be further enriched with AI-powered classifiers, associated with business glossary terms and specify experts and data owners. This process, essentially, makes data more trustworthy and valuable to data consumers across the organization. 


In order to help you streamline this process even further, we recently launched the capability for Azure Purview to bulk edit data assets at scale. In just a few clicks, you can now prepare a list of the data assets to be edited and then modify classifications, terms, experts as well as owners for the selected list with a single action.


How does it work?


Step 1: Prepare a list of data assets to be bulk-edited.

You can prepare the list either by searching on the assets and selecting them in search result page or doing to the asset details view and selecting the same.

Step 2: Once the list is ready click on “View selected” to review the list and remove any data asset which is accidentally added to the list.
