Popular Tables Configurations

The required entity definitions for Atlas can be applied using amundsenatlastypes.

Amundsen has a concept of popular tables, which is a default entry point of the application for now. Popular Tables API leverages popularityScore attribute of Table super type to enable custom sorting strategy.

The suggested formula to generate the popularity score is provided below and should be applied by the external script or batch/stream process to update Atlas entities accordingly.

Popularity score = number of distinct readers * log(total number of reads)
