Govern Add-On —formerly Taxonomy (SCHEMA)—is a paid add-on, available to Growth and Enterprise customers that gives instrumentation managers complete control over their instrumentation, and end-users more confidence and clarity in their data. You can find Govern Add-On taxonomy features by clicking data_management_icon.png and selecting Govern from the drop-down menu.

NOTE: Each project has its own schema configuration. 

Before you begin

  • You must be a Manager or Admin to make changes to events and the Schema.
  • The Schema features available for Starter plans include adding event descriptions, editing display names, and categorizing events. Users on Starter plans can also export their event schema.
  • Growth and Enterprise customers who purchase Govern Add-On have access to the Schema Initialization, Instrumentation planning, Data Validation and Transformations features.
  • Taxonomy API, which can help you programmatically maintain your event schema, is also available to Scholarship, Growth, and Enterprise plans. See article here for more details.
