Access to Table Descriptions


I was wondering if there was an API or some way to add or access the different data fields within a DB? For example there are different fields I can fill out in the UI like “Description, Why this table is interesting, Things to be aware of about this table.” Is there a way to modify / access these fields apart from simply editing them in the UI?


Yes. Pretty much everything you see and do in Metabase is accessible through the API and in the documentation. Turn on your browser developer stuff and you’ll see all the requests.
