Exposing table and column definitions

I have been unable to find a straightforward means of exposing table and column definitions to my Metabase users. I have seen a lot on using a Rest API, but that seems like a LOT of work. Is there a simpler way of exposing these definitions through Metabase?

And, if so… is there any import capability for pulling in definitions from, say, a .csv file? Or has a import program been developed by anybody?

Thanks very much.

Hi @PeteS

I’m not quite sure what you’re looking for, but it sounds like Reference, which can be accessed through “Browse data” > “Learn about our data” (or directly in the URL /reference)

As for importing and exporting the metadata, that’s possible via Serialization in the Enterprise Edition:
