Important

The Fivetran collector can be run in the Cloud or on-premise using Docker or Jar files.

Note

Lineage for Fivetran

The Fivetran collector identifies the source columns that destination columns sourced their data from (via copy / load operation).

The collector catalogs all database sources and destinations. Cross-system column-level lineage is currently supported for PostgreSQL, SQL Server, and Snowflake.
