Hello All

Please suggest how to make Data dictionary in Alteryx?

 

I referred many links but could not find appropriate answer. This question has been asked to me in an interview and I failed to answer.

 

Thanks in advance.

hey @ArtiRajput 

I guess it depends on the context of the question. But when looking at data governance / Data Dictionary, the answer will be Alteryx Connect. The whole purpose of Connect is data cataloguing and governance of data.

If the question was surrounding a specific workflow/data, then theres potential the answer it is looking for is the Field Info Tool, which grants a vast amount of data about specific fields. This would be the route i would take if i were making a data dictionary on a specific workflow. 

Hope this helps!
