Discover and manage data and other AI assets using Catalog Explorer

Databricks Catalog Explorer provides a UI to explore and manage data, schemas (databases), tables, models, functions, and other AI assets. To open Catalog Explorer, click Catalog icon Catalog in the sidebar.

Catalog Explorer is the main UI for many Unity Catalog features. For more information on Unity Catalog, see What is Unity Catalog?.

You can use Catalog Explorer to view schema details, preview sample data, and see table and model details and properties. Administrators can view and change owners, and admins and data object owners can grant and revoke permissions.

To learn about data loading, see Load data into a Databricks lakehouse.

To learn more about data objects, see Data objects in the Databricks lakehouse.


The Catalog Explorer UI is not live in all Databricks workspaces. For information about the previous UI, see Explore and create tables in DBFS.
