User Guide


Terms are words used within your organization to describe business concepts in plain language. Adding them to the platform ensures consistent use of those words throughout your organization. Terms also lend meaning to physical assets and their fields and give them context. When data consumers are browsing assets, terms allow them to understand the business meaning and semantics of the physical asset. Examples of terms could be “account type,” “customer level,” or “credit risk rating.”

As a data guardian, you create terms for others in your organization to use as they add and search for data.
