What/Who is a Source Owner?
For some asset types in Power BI (Report, Dataset and Dataflow), we can get information on who created or configured the asset. In Atlan, the "Source Owner" field reflects that value.
- createdBy field in the Power BI Report Schema
- configuredBy field in the Power BI Dataset Schema
- configuredBy field in the Power BI Dataflow Schema
Is it related to Power BI Workspace Admins?
No, it's granular data about the asset in question. We don't use workspace admin information to populate that field.
Do Source Owners need to be current Atlan users?
Not necessarily. The PowerBI API returns the email of the user, which is what we populate in the Atlan UI.
Which assets is it displayed for?
Why is it displayed for some assets but not others?
Because the API does not return that data for the other assets. See Reference Schema for more information.
