Retire unused data products after 6 months
Unused data products create no value.
They require effort to maintain.
We retire data products that are unused for 6 months.
We warn the team, if a data product is unused for 5 months.
- Data catalog contains only high-valued data products
- Data Access audit logs (Cloud Audit Logs) must be enabled (enabled by default)
- How to actually retire a data product?
- How and when to archive data?
We do not want automated retirement.
The platform should add a tag for unsued data products and send emails to the ownership team.
- Check BigQuery audit log for usages per resource grouped by data products
- A dashboard with unused data products
