Add the name of the element, a description and synonyms and exlcusion terms.

You can add as many elements as you need, there is no limit.


You can create a list of synonyms for the element to help narrow the search when the process "Classification discovery" is launched.

For example, if you create an element "Name" as part of the classification GDPR, you can add all terms related to "name" such as Last name, First name, surname, etc...
This will help identifying potential attributes in the data assets that are associated with the name of a person.

Exclusions terms

As for the synonyms, you can also create a list of terms that will be excluded during the search. Exclusion could be useful for example if you would like to identify the name of a person but exclude all other name such as country name, spiece name, and so on.

All synonyms and exclusions need to be separated by a comma "," or semi-column ";".

The list of synonyms or exclusions should not exceed 8000 characters.
