Add collection level attributes beyond name?


Collections have an attribute called “name”. Can I add additional attributes like “category”? How? I’m referring to attributes of the collection, not properties of the documents in the collection.

hi @moruga123 !

You cannot add metadata for your collection other than the name itself, as you mentioned, and the description.

Can you elaborate more on why this would be an interesting feature for you?

One possible solution to “filter” your collections (assuming this is what you want to do), would be using the description property to add some unique filter tags, and filter those out after getting the collections list.

Let me know if this helps.
