The Data Catalog is your data assets' source of truth. It allows you to:
- Find the asset you're looking for and thoroughly understand it thanks to business and technical context
- Identify unhealthy assets and troubleshoot detected data quality issues
- Quickly access assets you're in charge of
- See a breakdown of your assets across various dimensions (technologies, health, usage, owners, etc.) to optimise your costs by keeping a clean data fleet
Assets that show up on the Data Catalog page depend on the domain selected in the dropdown menu in the top right corner of the page.
The list shows all data assets that correspond to the applied search and filters. By default, there are 50 items per page - this number can be customised.
For each single asset, you can see your asset's:
- Description, which can be automatically extracted from your data source and/or manually edited by your team on Sifflet
- Quality status
- Data source name
- Data usage
Clicking a specific asset redirects you to the dedicated Asset page.
Hovering any asset on the list displays an overflow menu at the far right end of each asset row allowing you to:
- Apply auto coverage to the asset
- Edit the tags and description of the asset
- Copy the data asset ID
By default, the search is performed on assets' name and description.
You can optionally tick the
Search on fields checkbox to also have the search performed on field names and descriptions for
Tables & Views assets.

You can filter on some specific integration technologies or directly on your data source names.
Asset quality status is based on whether or not the asset is covered by monitors as well as on the severity of the incidents impacting the data asset:
- Urgent incidents: asset has at least one configured monitor & asset has at least one ongoing incident with a
- High risk incidents: asset has at least one configured monitor & asset has at least one ongoing incident with a
- No incidents: asset has at least one configured monitor & does not have any ongoing incident.

You can filter on the owners assigned to your assets.
