Atlan allows users to "tag" assets with classifications. You can use them to identify key characteristics of assets or group them together for usage or data protection.

Directly classify an asset

To directly classify an asset:

  1. On the Atlan homepage, click Assets in the left menu.
  2. On the Assets page, click on an asset to view its asset profile.
  3. Under Classification in the right menu, click the + icon.
  4. In the popup, check the boxes to select one or more classifications for the asset.
  5. Next to your selected classifications in the popup, click the downward arrow to configure the propagation of your classifications:
    1. Click Hierarchy & lineage to allow propagation of classifications to the child and downstream assets. 
    2. Click Hierarchy only (no lineage) to allow propagation of classifications to the child assets only.
    3. Click No propagation to disallow any propagation of classifications.
  6. Click Done to complete your selections.
  7. Click Save to save your classifications.
