    With Column lineage in BQ - do we need to have all of the potential datasets included in our instance in order to show the lineage to them? For example, our main data is all in one dataset X. Those are the only tables we want to surface to our users. But the tables and columns in X pull data from Dataset Y. Which is not selected to ingest in Secoda. Will column and table level lineage show the link from Dataset X to Dataset Y even though it's not being ingested by Secoda?

    Hey Justin, you’re correct that you’d need both Dataset X and Dataset Y to see column lineage from Dataset X to Dataset Y. One thing to mention is we’re doing some updates on the column lineage parser this week based on feedback from users last week when we released column lineage which will improve the column lineage from where it is today.

    Sounds good - will we be able to click into column lineage from the columns view at some point?

    When you say “columns view” it would be good to show a screenshot just so I’m sure of what you’re talking about. The main way we’ll be displaying the column lineage is through the toggle on the “Lineage” tab. If you had suggestions we’re always open to them!

    On the Columns tab of the Tables view, it seems natural for me to be able to click on something there next to a column and be shown the lineage for that column somehow.
