Iterate through the following steps for a set of metadata.
- Retrieve metadata: Retrieve metadata to review for classification (e.g. the full profile of a data asset).
- Calculate classifications: Use the retrieved metadata’s profile to calculate its classifications based on custom logic.
- Enrich metadata: Apply the calculated classification back to the metadata.
For example, automatically classify personally identifiable information as PII, or propagate a sensitivity classification from an upstream data element to all derived downstream data elements.
Automate classification of data assets, for consistency and to reduce human effort.
