Articles, Glossaries, and Tags

Articles are Alation objects intended for long-form written content and are often used to detail data policies, document terms and concepts, or to share analytical insights.

When writing an article, you can @-mention any piece of data, a user, or a saved query and directly embed that information. When you @-mention a piece of data in an article, that article will automatically appear on the Catalog page of the mentioned Alation object under Relevant Articles. You can also embed images and videos into articles.

For more information, see Working with Articles.

For best practices about writing articles, refer to Write Articles to Retain Tribal Knowledge.
