Viewing metadata collectors summary page

The metadata collector summary page shows a list of all the collector runs feeding data into an organization's Catalog. Use this page to see the sources powering your catalog as well as the status of the most recent run.

  • This page lists the collectors run using the Connection Manager and the collectors that are run on-premise.

  • Collector runs appear on this page when the metadata harvested by the collector is successfully uploaded to the ddw-catalogs dataset.

  • The page displays all collector runs for collector version 2.60 and higher.

To view the metadata collectors summary page:

  1. On the Organization profile page, go the Settings page.

  2. Go to the Metadata collectors section. The following information is available for each run of the collector:

    • Data source What the collector was run against.

    • Target: The specific target from which metadata is collected. For example, name of DB/Schema for database sources or Name of project/workbook etc. for non database sources.

    • Run location: The House icon indicates that the collector is run on-premise. The Cloud icon indicates the collection is run using the Connection Manager.

    • Destination: Collection where collected metadata resources appear. Click the collection name to navigate to the collection page. If you do not have access to the collection, you may see a 404 error page.

    • Status: Hover over the status to see exact completed time, run time, and number of resources collected.

      • Complete (green color): collector run successful, without exceptions.

      • Complete (yellow color): collector run successful, with exceptions. Click View messages to see the list of errors. Exceptions are not uncommon and likely just mean that the collector has an issue accessing a particular table.

      • Failed: Collector run unsuccessful. Click View messages to see the list of errors.

  3. Click the Help me set up a collector button to launch the Collector wizard that helps you generate the YAML file or CLI command for running the collectors. This wizard is available for a subset of collectors for now. You can find the Details for each collector are available on their respective collector pages.
