The 2020.4 release brings several features such as Notification Queue, new Custom Field type, the Alteryx Designer Tool Details section for analytic workflows, many improvements for metadata loaders, and more.
Since the introduction of Custom Fields in Connect allowing to define your own fields (for example to assign Terms and fill in respective values), we have received many questions on whether you can automatically load these fields. As of now – in Connect 20.3 - the answer is YES; you can do it for database assets! In this article we will show you how.
In this article, you will learn how to update data assets in bulk using the import and export feature in Connect. In our examples we'll be updating data asset owners and changing the group membership of users by exporting, updating, and later importing an XLS file.
