About collections
What is a collection?

A collection is a way to organize your catalog metadata resources into logical groupings and hierarchies. You can think of them like folders or directories. Collections have their own landing pages that can be configured to add sections and fields to provide context about the group of metadata resources in the collection.

You can also apply access control to collections, granting edit or administration access to the collection and the metadata resources contained within to a group or individual.

Where do I find collections?

On the Organization Profile Page you can view tiles for all of your collections. To manage all the collections in an organization, go to the Collections tab. Here you can use filters to narrow down the list of available collections and create new collections using the New button.

Click a collection on the Organization Profile Page to see resources that are assigned to that collection. The Overview tab has a Description of the collection and an About this collection section.

It also lists the tables, business terms, and analysis that are in the collection. Use the Info icon next to each resource to see the Information Card for that resource. It gives a brief description of the resource and the tags assigned to it. You can use this information to then decide if you need to navigate to the resource to explore it further.

On the Settings tab you can see who has access to the collection and give members and groups access to the collection. You can also delete the collection from here.
