Tags definition

A tag is a label that you can assign to a data asset. Tags can help you manage, identify, organize, search for, and filter datasets. You can create tags to categorize datasets by purpose, owner, environment, or other criteria.



Do not add personally identifiable information (PII) or other confidential or sensitive information in tags. Tags are accessible to all Sifflet users, and are not intended to be used for private or sensitive data.

Managing Tags

Tags can be created, updated, edited and deleted in the the Tags page.
To help you implement a consistent and effective tagging strategy, you have 3 tag types created by default:

Tag NameUse Case Example
Business CriticalUse this tag to highlight any Business Critical datasets that need to be closely monitored and rapidly fixed.
PIIUse this tag on tables that have personally identifiable information.
Non-ProductionUse this tag to highlight datasets used for tests.
