Add DQ Rules to Attributes

You can apply DQ evaluation rules directly to attributes in the catalog rather than just to terms, meaning that you can run the same evaluation in the catalog as in monitoring projects. This is especially useful, for example, in cases where results have been exported from monitoring projects, remediated in ONE Data, and now, you want to re-evaluate them from the catalog.

Add rule to attribute

  1. In Knowledge Catalog > Data Catalog, select the catalog item to which the attribute belongs.

  2. Select the Data Quality tab.

  3. Locate the attribute’s row in the table under the data quality results graph. Under Rules, select Add DQ Checks.

    Click anywhere on the attribute row to open the sidebar, where you can assign terms and rules to the attribute.
  4. Choose an existing rule from the options available. You can either:

    • View all rules using the All Rules tab.

    • View only rules suggested by AI, using the Suggestions tab.

  5. Select Assign Rule.


    Rules with multiple input attributes can’t be immediately assigned as you must select which attributes should correspond to which input.

    In the case of multi-input rules, you will see Configure instead of Assign Rule. Select Configure and follow the instructions in Configure multi-input rule.

  6. Publish the changes.

Configure multi-input rule

If you have a rule with multiple inputs, it is necessary to select which attributes should be used for each input.

To do this:

  1. On any attribute, select Add DQ Checks.

  2. Search for the rule from the list provided.

  3. Select Configure.

  4. Select which attributes should correspond to which inputs.

    When you are finished, select Add Check.


The rule is now active on the selected attributes.

Actions applied to a multi-input rule from one of the selected attributes are propagated to the other input attributes. For example, to pause a multi-input rule, you do not need to select pause on all instances, just on one input attribute.

Known issues

  • When a multi-input rule is applied several times to the same combination of attributes, DQ evaluation fails.

  • When a multi-input rule is applied twice to the same attribute and one of the instances of the rule is disabled, all instances of this rule will be disabled on the attribute.

Pause and activate rules

You can pause and reactivate rules regardless of how they were assigned: via terms or manually. When rules are paused, they are not evaluated and their results do not count towards the overall quality.


Delete manually assigned rules

You can also delete manually assigned rules from an attribute entirely: use the X icon and publish the changes. If you delete a rule by mistake, you can revert the change using the revert icon.
