Create Asset Collections

About this task

You can group data assets into Asset Collections. This enables you to organize data based on business classifications, purpose, protections needed, etc.


You cannot edit Asset Collections after you have created them. You would delete the Asset Collection, and create it again.


From the Asset Collection page:

  1. Click the Add Asset Collection button.

    The Add page opens.

  2. Fill in the following information:

    Field Name


    Example Value


    Enter an appropriate Asset Collection name. This name cannot be duplicated across the system. (Mandatory)

    Customer Profiles, Sales Assets, Financials


    Describe the purpose or intent of the Asset Collection. (Mandatory)

    Contains customer profiles: data assets for US and WW.


    Assign the Asset Collection to one Datalake. Choose from a list of available Datalakes. (Mandatory)

  3. Add assets to the Asset Collection:

    1. Click Add Assets.

      The Asset Search window opens.

    2. Search for assets using Basic or Advanced search.

      Basic Search

      Advanced Search

      Advanced search uses facets of technical and business metadata about the assets, such as those captured in Apache Atlas, to help users define and build collections of interest. Advanced search conditions are a subset of attributes for the Apache Atlas type hive_table.

    3. Click Done.

      All assets that display from the search result will be selected, with the exception of greyed out assets; assets can only belong to one Asset Collection at a time.

    4. Click Next.

      The Summary page opens.

  4. Click Save.

    You are returned to the Asset Collections home page.
