Manage Metadata, Tags, and Labels

Without changing actual data in your files, you can use metadata, tags, and labels to annotate your files and trigger pipelines. You can add them in multiple places in the Tetra Data Platform (TDP).

Although metadata, tags, and labels seem to be very similar, they are actually designed to be used in very differently. For more information, read the Basic Concepts documentation. You manage metadata, tags, and labels in the Attribute Management page.
