Your list of datasets can become quite long over time, but the application offers you different ways to efficiently search among them.

You can use faceted search to intuitively combine several criteria and search among your list of datasets. To illustrate how you can benefit from a well documented inventory and a good use of custom metadata and other attributes, you will perform a search based on the new custom attribute that you have just created and applied.


  1. On the left of the dataset header, click the Go back arrow to return to the dataset list.
  2. Click the funnel icon and then Basic to enable the faceted search.
    You will be guided at each step to add the available facet, operator and values to search for.
  3. Click the Add filter icon to start creating your facet.
  4. From the list that opens, select Custom attributes > To clean as facet.
    This menu lists all the custom attributes definitions available on the account. For now, it only displays the one your previously created.
  5. From the list of values that correspond to this attribute, select yes and click Apply.
    In will be automatically set as operator , because you will have to choose from a list of existing values. Depending on the facet, the list of available operators will differ.


Only the datasets matching the filter from your search remains in the list. The logical operator between two entries in a badge is or, while the logical operator between badges is and. Each badge can be edited afterward by directly clicking the part you want to change.
