Atlas Automated Tagging using rules on column data

Explorer

I am trying to use Atlas to automate tagging and classification of tables' columns using data inside the column and matching it with specific rules.

For example: I would like to have a rule for phone number with the following regular expression: ^(\([0-9]{3}\)|[0-9]{3}-)[0-9]{3}-[0-9]{4}$

This regular expression will be able to match US phone numbers like (555)555-5555

I would like to tell Atlas to classify any column where the data match the above regular expression as private data with tag "Confidential" or "Private".

Does Atlas handle such thing?

Re: Atlas Automated Tagging using rules on column data

Not natively with current functionality, but you may be interested in a product called DataGuise.

If you rolled your own solution of identifying which entities satisfied such a condition, you could use the Atlas API to associate tags with those entities, please see this HCC answer.

This is a nice Idea to post to HCC.

Thank you for your answer. I looked at the product you mentioned above and also at another one called waterline data. They are both promising, but I was tying to see if the functionality is already in atlas and require some tweaking to make it work as expected. I believe the REST API works great if I develop some machine learning models to predict column data types and associate tags to them.

How do I post this idea to HCC?
