Manage labels

To create or view computed attributes with fields containing a given label, you must have access to that label.

Labels allow you to categorize datasets and fields according to usage and access policies that apply to that data. Labels can be applied at any time, providing flexibility in how you choose to govern data. Best practices encourage labeling data as soon as it is ingested into Platform, or as soon as data becomes available for use in Platform.

There is one single list of labels for a whole organization. To create a custom label, you will need Manage Usage Labels permissions on the production sandbox. Label deletion is currently not supported.

To create a new label, select the Labels tab in the sidebar and select Create Label.


The Create a new label dialog appears, prompting you to enter a name, an optional friendly name and an optional description.


When finished, select Confirm.
