External assets from the Tableau Catalog can now be moved into projects so end users can maintain the metadata rather than just admins.
Tableau release notes External assets can now be moved into projects. This change democratises metadata curation by utilising existing project permissions to allow more users to manage descriptions and data quality warnings. This removes site admins as a potential bottleneck and gives metadata ownership to users who know the data best. Additionally, this makes external assets more discoverable for content creators.
