Is it possible to add other fields besides the alternate name and description in the alteryx connect description section?

Hi @dipika1 

 

My guess is that you're already aware that custom fields can be added to all asset pages and that your question is whether or not they can be aligned with the 'Descriptions' section?

 

Short answer is no

 

Custom fields can be added but they'll appear on the lower right of the page (below the fold). I'm not aware of any way to adjust its location on the page.

Is it possible to upload metadata in the connect description section using a metadata loader?

We are changing the column_comment in Teradata metaloader. We put a our data dictionary description into it and a couple more concatenated attributes. We put a <br> before the attributes to start them on a new line. 

 

So possible, yes.
