About the automations

Data governance teams govern large volumes of diverse data with hundreds, sometimes thousands of stakeholders. Much of that work is manual and time consuming, such as metadata enrichment and managing data access requests. The Data Governance application enables governance teams to more effectively manage tasks and engage stakeholders.

The Data Governance application enables automations and automation-driven workflows. As part of the Data Governance application, automations called Eureka Bots reduce the amount of manual effort needed for data governance tasks, helping to increase productivity, engagement, and trust. Data Governance Powered By Eureka Bots combines automations with’s Knowledge Graph architecture to create an application that is simple, flexible, and interactive. This new application – part of’s Data Catalog Platform – enables data governance teams to be more productive, customize workflow, and engage stakeholders in data governance processes.

Note that all automations currently update the information in the base layer. The automations get the information from the flattened catalog (user+base layer), but saves its results into the base layer, so that if there are any values set in the user layer, the automation does not override them.

The Data Governance application comes in two tiers.

How does the application work?

Automations and automation-driven workflows are both available in the Platform’s Automation gallery. Tasks can be claimed and managed from a dedicated UI. The application also includes built-in reporting to enable data governance teams to manage progress and prioritize efforts.


Only Organization administrators can view, configure, and run automations.

  • From the Organization profile page, configure automations and automation-driven workflows using the automation templates available in the Automation templates section.

  • Manage the configured automations from the Automations section of the page. This section provides a breakdown of your automations, categorizing them into active automations, those that have been configured but not yet enabled, and archived automations that are no longer in use.

  • Claim and manage data governance tasks in one place.
