Data source certification enables your data stewards to promote specific data sources in your Tableau deployment as trusted and ready for use. Certified data sources get preferential treatment in Tableau Server search results and in our smart data source recommendations algorithm so that they are discoverable and easily reusable. Follow along for a look of certification in action:
Edit the certification status of a data source on the details tab of the Data Source page in Tableau Server.
Project leaders, site admins, and Tableau Server administrators have permission to certify data sources.
Certification notes allow you to describe why a particular data source can be trusted. These notes are accessible throughout Tableau when viewing this data source.
Once certified, data sources display the certification badge and certifier under their titles so that users can quickly identify them.
After receiving certification, certified data sources receive preferential treatment in search results and stand out in data source lists in Tableau Server and Tableau Desktop.
The certification note is available nearly everywhere the certification icon is shown.
Certified data sources enable data stewards to promote specific data sources so that they are more discoverable by Tableau users in the organization. Try it out in Tableau 10.4 beta.
