Bulk editing metadata

As the number of resources you have grows, it can be difficult to make changes to them and keep them all in sync. Fortunately allows you to select and edit multiple datasets, projects, or catalog resources at one time. As with editing a single resource, you can edit multiples of any resource to which you have write permissions. The edits you can make are to the metadata for the resource--you cannot edit the data itself.


This feature does not support:

  • Modifying the contributors to a dataset

  • Modifying relationships to and from catalog resources

Bulk editing is available for the following resources in the application:

  • Datasets

  • Projects

The following additional resources are available only for organizations with the Enterprise license:

  • Tables

  • Analysis

  • Subtypes of Glossary, Tables, and Analysis resources
