Data Quality Warning History

When Tableau Catalog is enabled in your environment, site administrators can see how data quality warnings are being used on the site using the pre-built admin view, Data Quality Warning History.

For more information about Tableau Catalog, part of Data Management, see "About Tableau Catalog" in the Tableau Server(Link opens in a new window) or Tableau Cloud(Link opens in a new window) Help.

From the Site Status page, select the Data Quality Warning History dashboard:

Data Quality Warning History Admin View

The dashboard shows how many data quality warnings are active over a period of time. It also shows how many warnings have been changed (created, updated, and deleted) over that same time period.

Under the line charts are the details about the data quality warnings, including:

  • Date and Time - When the warning was created or last changed.
  • Content Type - The type of asset the warning is set on, such as a database, table, or data source.
  • Content Name - Name of the asset the warning is set on.

  • Status - If the warning is active or inactive.
  • Type - Warning type can be Stale data, Warning, Deprecated, Sensitive data, or Under maintenance.
  • Visibility - The warning can be configured to have normal (the default) or high visibility.
  • Message - The message the warning creator wrote to display to users when they see the details of the warning.
