How to catalog metadata

Metadata is cataloged using either:

  • The Connection Manager - data.worlds GUI for creating and managing data connections, is a simple interface used to create connections for both catalog ingmetadata and accessing remote data from a virtual connection. The databases that can be configured with the Connection manager are listed in this table.

    Here is an example of the Configuration Manager interface:

  • The data.world Collector - a data.world program created to catalog metadata that is either run from a Docker container or from a jar file. We recommend that you run it from inside a Docker container. If you cannot use Dockerwe can provide you with a .jar file containing the correct Collector version for your implementation. See our data.world Collector FAQ for more information about the Collector.
