Collaborate on data monitoring
Last modified on 31-May-23
One of the main benefits of using Soda Cloud is the ability to collaborate with your teammates on the work to monitor and maintain data quality. Including multiple perspectives yields a more robust interpretation of “good quality data”.
Integrate with Slack
As an Admin on your Soda Cloud account, integrate your Slack workspace in your Soda Cloud account so that Soda Cloud can interact with individuals and channels in the workspace.
- In Soda Cloud, navigate to your avatar > Organization Settings, then navigate to the Integrations tab and click the + icon to add a new integration.
- Follow the guided steps to authorize Soda Cloud to connect to your Slack workspace. If necessary, contact your organization’s Slack Administrator to approve the integration with Soda Cloud.
- Configuration tab: select the public channels to which Soda can post messages; Soda cannot post to private channels.
- Scope tab: select the Soda features (alert notifications and/or incidents) which can access the Slack integration.
Invite your team members
Invite the members of your team to join you in your work to monitor data quality in your organization.
In Soda Cloud, navigate to your avatar > Invite Team Members and fill in the blanks.
When your team members receive the invitation email, they can click the link in the email to create their own login credentials to access your Soda Cloud account directly. Refer to Default roles and groups to learn more about the default access rights Soda Cloud assigns to new users.
Note that if your organization uses a single sign-on (SSO) identity provider to access Soda Cloud, you cannot invite team members in Soda Cloud. Instead, contact your IT Admin to request access to Soda Cloud using your SSO. See also, Single Sign-on with Soda Cloud.
Share test results and filtered views
Collaborating as a team on Soda Cloud means you can quickly share the lastest test results for a dataset with others.
- In Soda Cloud, navigate to the Datasets dashboard, then select the dataset you wish to share.
- Copy the URL of the dataset, then paste it into a message to the teammates who have access to your organization’s Soda Cloud account.
Create and manage Incidents
Create an Incident in Soda Cloud to track your team’s investgation and resolution of the data quality issue.
If you have integrated your Soda Cloud account with a Slack workspace, you can use an Incident’s built-in ability to create an incident-specific Slack channel where you and your team can collaborate on the issue investigation.
- Create a new agreement to establish an agreed-upon expectation of good-quality data.
- Connect Soda Core to your Soda Cloud account.
- Organize your datasets in Soda Cloud to facilitate your search for the right data.
- Set notification rules that apply to multiple checks in your account.
