Published Apr 26 2023 10:59 AM 5,990 Views

We are announcing the tags feature in Microsoft Purview Data Catalog. Tags are a form of metadata that can be added to assets in order to label or categorize them. Similar to social media hashtags, tags are free-text words that can be used to associate multiple pieces of information with a single asset. Users can utilize tags to easily locate and retrieve data assets as needed, providing valuable context for anyone who needs to access them. Examples of tags include project names, cost centers, or other relevant keywords that help to organize and differentiate data assets.


Data stewards can now categorize or label data assets in Microsoft Purview Data Catalog using the tags feature.
