Register new data

After setting up your new sales organization, you may want to protect additional data for additional areas within your organization such as for the Marketing team or HR. During this section of the tutorial, we will walk through how to onboard new data so that you can grant access and protect data for multiple use cases.

What are crawlers?

A crawler automatically connects to your data source and pulls any discovered datasets into Okera.

Database Creation

  1. Navigate to the Data page and select create a new database.

  2. Create your new database called hr and add any description relevant to your downstream users.
