Tableau Prep Conductor and Tableau Catalog are part of Tableau Data Management. In this blog, we will drill down into Tableau Catalog.
Tableau Catalog integrates features like lineage and impact analysis, data discovery, data quality warnings, and search into Tableau applications (Figure 1).
Tableau Catalog supports data lineage including databases, tables, flows, workbooks, sheets and owners (Figure 2).
Tableau Catalog also supports data certification. After certification by data owners, a data source gets a green check mark on its icon. Certified data sources rank higher in search results and are added to recommended data sources (Figure 3).
Users can also set Quality Warning messages on data assets such as data sources, databases, flows, and tables. Quality Warnings include Deprecated, Stale Data, Under Maintenance, and Sensitive data (Figure 4).
Overall, Tableau Catalog combined with Tableau Prep Conductor forms part of Tableau Data Management, which is fit-for-purpose for Tableau customers.
