Understand View Lineage

Admins or users with ALL privileges for a dataset can see view lineage information on a view's Details tab.

View Lineage

View lineage currently only shows direct parents and children, as well as root base table information. It does not list grandparent or grandchild information in cases where the descendant chain is long.

Note: Only lineage for views created through Okera are visible. If Okera is connected to an external metastore, and views were created inside that metastore bypassing Okera, their view lineage is not displayed. Finally, dropping a dataset (table or view) and recreating it removes its view lineage.
