Act on Metadata Overview

DataHub's metadata infrastructure is stream-oriented, meaning that all changes in metadata are communicated and reflected within the platform within seconds.

This unlocks endless opportunities to automate data governance and data management workflows, such as:

  • Automatically enrich or annotate existing data entities within DataHub, i.e., apply Tags, Terms, Owners, etc.
  • Leverage the Actions Framework to trigger external workflows or send alerts to external systems, i.e., send a message to a team channel when there's a schema change
  • Proactively identify what business-critical data resources will be impacted by a breaking schema change

This section contains resources to help you take real-time action on your rapidly evolving data stack.
