Metadata collection, including optional Technical Lineage Server

Docker microservices (or Java application in the case of the Technical Lineage Server) are deployed in the customer environment by the customer. These services only transmit metadata to data.world:

  • Source system descriptive information

  • Schema information such as tables and columns

  • Object-oriented descriptive information such as the titles/names of dashboards or reports and when they were created

Transmission of this information is over HTTPS with optional custom SSL certificate support. This information is non-sensitive in nature, and can be managed by data stewards, data governance, and data security professionals in your organization for further curation and access control.
