What's New in April 2024

This month, we’re excited to bring you a host of new features and improvements designed to enhance your data catalog experience. Discover a seamless search with our improved global search modal, stay informed with our enhanced Notices UI, manage platform tags more conveniently in Metaphor, and gain better insights with enhanced asset browsing across domains.

Improved Global Search Modal

Experience a seamless search with our enhanced global search modal. The streamlined layout allows you to quickly find data and effortlessly switch between search modes, making your search experience smoother and more efficient.

Enhanced Notices UI

We’ve updated our Notices UI to ensure that important data incidents or deprecation alerts are prominently displayed. These alerts are now front and center on any data asset page, search results, and Asset Hierarchy pages, keeping you informed and up-to-date at a glance.

Platform Tags in Metaphor

Metaphor has enhanced the visibility of platform tags from Snowflake, Power BI, dbt, Tableau, and more, by displaying them directly in the catalog. Users can now browse tags on the Tags Landing Page and easily search using the operator tag: (e.g., tag:"PII"), making tag management more convenient than ever.

Enhanced Asset Browsing Across Domains

While browsing through assets in a domain, users can now see other domains or data products a given asset is also used in. This new feature provides greater context and insight, enabling better data discovery and more informed decision-making for your business.

About Metaphor

The Metaphor Metadata Platform represents the next evolution of the Data Catalog - it combines best in class Technical Metadata (learnt from building DataHub at LinkedIn) with Behavioral and Social Metadata. It supercharges an organization’s ability to democratize data with state of the art capabilities for Data Governance, Data Literacy and Data Enablement, and provides an extremely intuitive user interface that turns even the most non-technical user into a fan of the catalog.
