# **What is the Catalog Management feature**




Catalog Management allows you to view, manage, diagnose, and explore the data across all the Catalogs in your account. This feature consists of a suite of tools that covers the entire experience of managing the data integration process in a self-service manner, from the very beginning of feeding data into a Discovery catalog all the way through configuring and verifying the data in our [Search](🔗) and [Suggest APIs](🔗).

# **Where can you use Catalog Management**




Here are some examples of how you can use this feature:

  • View all Catalogs, including their usage data such as counts and sizes

  • View feed data as sent from the source system for debugging

  • Choose different configurations for data attributes in Search and Suggest APIs

  • Perform common management operations like copying and promoting configurations between Catalogs as well as changing common settings

  • View the current and historical job history for modifications to the Catalog

  • Search and explore data in the Catalog and see the corresponding Search and Suggest API calls at the same time

**Note:** The Catalog Management feature will supersede and deprecate existing DevStudio functionality related to Catalog data such as Feed Status, API Explorer, and Catalogs.
