In the Data Catalog application, users have the catalog of all the sources, but when users want to look into the details of certain sources and data domains, they have to apply filters again and again on different sections in the application to view the desired data so in order to save the time and effort we have Global filter where users can choose the sources and data domains as user settings at the global level to view the data in the application.
How to apply Global Filters:
To apply global filters navigate to the My settings Page, Select the Data sources and Data Domain that you want to add as Filter, and click on the save button.
