Run a data lineage analysis for the Email Address report field to understand where it comes from.

Before you begin

You have been assigned a Viewer security role.

Procedure

  1. In the Data Flow tab, click the Diagram view.
  2. Click the Email Address element in BI reports and click the highlighter icon.
    In this graph, you can see the origin and transformation of Email Address.
  3. Click the arrow between the EMAIL and email_address elements.
    You can see the original data is coming from the NSR purchase order file. It has been extracted by a Talend Data Integration Job named ACME_S3_integration.
    The Job processed the data and stored the result in the email_address column of the anonymized_orders table.

Results

You are ready to understand what the Email Address field means.
