Data Object Metadata

Use metadata to keep your data objects organized, as your projects grow larger and more complex.

Metadata makes it easier to keep your projects organized. While some metadata is pre-set and can't be changed, you can set values for the following metadata fields:

  • Name: an arbitrary UTF-8 string

  • Properties: a key-value store

  • Tags: a collection of strings

User-defined metadata is particularly useful in search queries.

Project-specificity of metadata

User-defined metadata is project-specific. So within different projects, the same object can have different metadata.
