Tag Management

Use custom Tags to group data and indicate data quality.

Data Managers and Admins can use this page to learn how to create and add tags to data.

Create Tags

You can create new tags from the All Tags page by clicking + New Tag, next to the page title.

Create custom tags with different colors and icons to distinguish them from each other at a glance.

Organizing tags

Tags in Select Star are defined to be flexible so you can design your own process when cataloguing your data. This section explains the two types of tags we make available: Category and Status tags, Tag ownership, and how to structure a tag collection.

Types of Tags

Select Star has two kinds of tags: Category tags and Status tags.

Use Category tags to group information relevant to a department or project. You can have a Sales or Marketing tag to group information relevant to those departments.

Category tags can be applied to high-level datasets, like tables and dashboards, but not to columns.

Use Status tags to indicate data quality. You can mark any datasets or fields as Certified, Sensitive, Deprecated, or any other status you'd use to define the state of the data.

Status tags can be applied to any data down to the column level.

Folder Structure

Tags can be organized into a folder like structure by dragging one tag into another. This can help you structure your tags in multiple levels.

Tag Owners

Assign an Owner to your new tag. Tag Owners can be thought of as Business Owners, meaning they are responsible for maintaining the tag documentation.

Owners can be either Teams or Individuals. You'll be able to see what team an individual is part of in the dropdown.

When your tag is created, Data Managers and Admins will be able to edit the description. Use the tag description to indicate what kind of data can be found in the tag.

You may want to describe the department or project which uses a specific Category tag.

Or you may outline procedures for handling data with Status tags.
