Editing asset properties in a catalog

You can edit asset properties if you have sufficient permissions within the catalog and on the asset.

If you have the Admin role in a catalog, or you have the Editor role and you are a member or owner of the asset, you can edit these asset properties:

  • Name
  • Description
  • Format
  • Business terms
  • Tags
  • Owner
  • Classification

If you have the Editor role in the catalog and you are not a member or owner of the asset, you can edit an asset’s tags, but only if the catalog is not subject to data protection rules.

All catalog collaborators can rate and review assets and edit their own ratings and reviews.

To edit an asset property, go to the asset’s page and click the edit (edit icon) icon next to the property you want to edit.

To assign business terms or tags to a column of the asset, click on the eye (eye icon) icon and then click the edit (edit icon) icon to select the business terms from a list or add the tags you want to assign to this column.

You can assign the terms that are available in the catalog of the current IBM Cloud account.

You can also control access to an asset.
