The Collector self-hosted by the customer

However, for security or infrastructure operations reasons, you may opt to use the Collector in your on-premise compute environment behind your own firewall. By doing so keep in mind that you cannot use the Connection Manager UI -- rather instead you will leverage the command line developer user experience for the Collector, which is documented in our Collector documentation.

The Collector ships as a Docker image which can be loaded and run with a series of command line (CLI) options. It outputs a file with the extension *.dwec.ttl that you can upload to manually, or you can have the catalog collector upload it automatically using an API token.
