Manual freshness thresholds are now set only from Assets > Freshness

Users can now manage their freshness thresholds - whether automatic or manual - all from Assets > Freshness. To see this drawer, click View Details on the Freshness widget in Assets. User can then click Edit and choose between:

  • Automatic: ML will determine the threshold, and the user can choose between High/Med/Low sensitivity.
  • Explicit: User will determine the threshold
  • Disable: Freshness monitoring will be turned off for the table.

Freshness thresholds set through Assets > Freshness will follow the notification routing and grouping logic of out-of-the-box freshness monitors, regardless of whether “Automatic” or “Explicit” thresholds are selected.

These changes are geared to give users one place to manage the freshness thresholds for a table, instead of being fragmented across different experiences for out-of-the-box freshness and Freshness Rules.

We will continue investing in easy and scalable ways to deploy manual thresholds. But we don’t think that the old experience for Freshness Rules is the right path. As a result, we’re removing the ability to create the old-style Freshness Rules through the UI. Existing Freshness Rules will continue to function, and users can continue to create them through Monitors as Code. More details to come.
