Allow the ability to query the metadata stored from data discovery - or provide canned reports

Our data stewards have to filter through thousands of tables and columns to determine authoritative data that we want to ingest into our Unified Data Fabric we are building in Cloud Object Storage. Having he ability to query output from data discovery would greatly assist in focusing on a smaller list of columns to curate the data and determine authoritative data.

Here are the data tabs they would like to query...
- Column Properties

- Data Quality

- Rules

- Data Classes

- Governance

- Data Types

- Formats

- Frequency Distribution

    Hi David, thank you for submitting the idea. Do you mind elaborating on your use case a bit more? I don't quite follow the flow you have in mind.

    Are you trying to filter on the metadata from data discovery to identify list of assets to add to your unified data catalog?

    In WKC catalogs, columns are handled within their data asset. We don't store columns as separate individual assets.
