Hi Peter, We have recently added RelationshipDefs, as the way to inject new relationship attributes into entities. The relationship def can specify whether tags propagate across the relationship and in which direction. The actual tag propagation is not in the code base yet, but is being worked on. Tag propagation will not result in copies of tags - that could be become difficult to manage - instead as you query entities, the Atlas code will derive the tags associated with an entity. We have not designed yet how to override this behaviour, when the propagation behaviour in the Def is not appropriate. I have not got the Jira number for this : by copy Madhan - do you have this for Peter.
We feel this feature will allow more consistent control on how tags are applied to entities and in what circumstances; it therefore simplifies tag authoring. all the best, David.

Hi All, I have a question about the possibility of Atlas automatically apply tags based on lineage relations. Let's suppose we have a hive table tagged as 'secret'. Can we have Atlas automatically apply this tag on all entities derived form this table, e.g. all views selecting from this table?
