Bulk Management

Bulk Management feature in Amorphic allows the users to edit the metadata(s) for their resources in a bunch. This feature helps in saving time for the user where otherwise it would have take a long time to edit resource metadata one at a time.

Amorphic Bulk Management provides the following capabilities:
  • Users have the option of selecting the resource-type from the dropdown on the top.
  • Once selected, all available resources of that resource-type are displayed on selection console. All the resources are disaplyed in a sorted fashion for Selection. The sort criteria varies for each resource-type.
  • User can select multiple resources and to send to edit metadata console.
  • In the edit metadate console, users have the option to either update a property of all the selected reources at one go or edit one-at-a-time as well.

Currently, Datasets is the only available resouce-type. Other resouce-types may get added in future.
