Dataflow Descriptions

@mattchandler

At a glance I can see a creator's commentary about a dataset in the dataset description field.  This can likewise be done with cards and Redshift/MySQL dataflows in their respective description fields.  But seemingly not with Magic dataflows for some reason.  If that doesn't exist, can we have it added?  Since we have multiple MajorDomo- and minor Domos, it's nice to see quickly what's going on with the dataflow inventory without delving into the code or transforms to see why a dataflow was created.

  • Thanks for the feedback @AS — that's a great suggestion. I'll work with the team on getting a description field added for Magic ETL.

  • @mattchandler Hi Matt - I have started using the new governance tables, and this definitely makes the topic of dataflow descriptions resurface.  The SQL dataflows have descriptions, but not Magic ETL.  Now that we can generate reports on our metadata, this description field being available would be quite useful.
