To classify data sources by folder

If files/tables with the same name are registered, it is impossible to identify on the data sources list.
Our client would like a feature that to classify data sources by folder as like "All Schemas, Tables and Views".

Hi @Suzu ,

 

I am not sure that I follow. Could you please provide more details? E.g. what is the purpose and what the user experience should be? Especially I am not sure what does "to classify data sources by folder" mean.

Hi @VojtechT ,

 

Thank you for your reply. 

The client said "if files/tables with the same name are registered, it is impossible to identify on the data sources list". He would like to classify files/tables as identify them easy.

Hi @VojtechT ,

 

@Suzu have similar use cases.  If we are working on a project we may want to know what additional assets are related to a particular folder, as that folder may be an entire project.  This would help provide context around seemingly unrelated data sources or sources/outputs that have not been connected yet.  Having this searchable would also help with batch created files where the only difference is the file suffix.  Using the path as metadata I could now attach the pertinent information to the path instead of each file.
