Catalog collector change log


Collector v2.110

hash: 98583ecda023782df1e08a0f2347a536e239186dcca3936d16c67ae1f6aad0f6

  • Internal release.


Collector v2.109

hash: 6602f313506e5eb3ea74c296994f7e4d7bd56845c6f2b35e6d1d4cde5f402832

  • Snowflake policy fully-qualified names are being written to the title instead of to the description property.


Collector v2.108

hash: b81a221abff982a356a21c4430f80da1e4459f0c3ead2d4f4f51a8f1d45c5604

  • Added --post-process-sparql cli option to remaining collectors. This option allows the user to pass in a SPARQL query to post-process the catalog graph created by the collector prior to it being written to the filesystem and/or uploaded to the API.

  • The option to use the credential file for BigQuery no longer allows use of -c . It must be specified with --credentialFile.


Collector v2.107

hash: 4a33db022e92488914d1f088d4041a31d76883706ae13a88bf1a0e8aa67eaa51

  • Fixed an issue where MS SQL Server database objects referenced from PowerBI did not always link to those objects harvested by the SQL Server collector due to mismatched IRIs.

  • Added --post-process-sparql cli option to some collectors. This option allows the user to pass in a SPARQL query to post-process the catalog graph created by the collector prior to it being written to the filesystem and/or uploaded to the API.


Collector v2.106

hash: 0ac22da04737fbcaaac0da9d076eaf92e3cdd870c85544dd16a556f54a8900a8

  • Fixed defect in which boolean properties that appeared in the global_options section of a dwcc config file were not properly recognized.

  • Updated the Google BigQuery collector to coin IRIs for database objects that align with IRIs coined by other collectors.

  • dbt collector now writes catalog records for each Snowflake tag and policy.


Collector v2.105

hash: 427443cadbc21a3e26f095a4c054f6193bf3c2b96d257cdb22b57abd061bad68

  • The PowerBI collector now supports the ability to include specific workspaces for cataloging via --include-workspace. The collector continues to allow exclusion of specific workspaces with --exclude-workspace. Use of --include-workspace takes precedence.

  • The dbt collector now supports harvesting of dbt projects/artifacts that specify Snowflake as the target database.

  • The dbt collector now correctly coins database object (e.g., database, schema, table, column) IRIs that align with IRIs coined by the JDBC collectors. Previously, if the case used for identifiers in dbt artifacts did not match the target database’s default collation, the IRIs would not align…they do now.


Collector v2.104

hash: 0b01f8c379e52f3167577a6fd1e5ad2f8d2f3d73871797ae3859b79f83bf5c29

  • Updated the Monte Carlo collector to add a --bigquery-credentials-file option, in order to standardize the option since the dbt collector has a --bigquery-credentials-file option (note the --big-query-credentialFile still exists in Monte Carlo, this is a new alias for the same option).

  • The Snowflake collector now harvests Tags, Masking Policies, and Row Access Policies, and associate these resources with the database objects to which they apply. There are new CLI options in order to include these: --tag-collection and --policy-collection.

10-14-22 Collector v2.103

  • With this release the Athena collector is no longer a JDBC collector--we harvest metadata by accessing the Athena API directly, rather than going through a JDBC driver. This means that it is no longer necessary to provide a JDBC driver when running the collector.

1-10-22 the Collectorv2.65

Digest: ed08cdd21a374c30456de0989076f5180bc4187ca998358b051807e521fd44e6

  • This release adds a new option for the MANTA collector, --manta-max-parallel-scenarios. Specifying this option and passing an integer value will configure the MANTA API to export the specified number of scenarios in the MANTA graph in parallel. The default value is 4; adjusting this up or down can improve performance.

1-5-22 DWCv2.64

Digest: 45b72798b0602885790388331a75db1f4286b15bf57b21f30f416eda79041571

  • The Athena JDBC driver is no longer bundled with the Collector as we have discovered that the Athena driver itself has a dependency on a vulnerable version of log4j. Customers that use the the Collector Athena collector will now need to supply their own driver and put it in the jdbc driver directory (as is done with other collectors for which we don’t distribute a driver).

12-15-21 the Collectorv2.62

Digest: sha256:2cd579e09f4eee94e141e8cf7e4e40e9a9b8803029df1be7112d67d62ef33b9e

  • The Oracle collector now supports connecting to the database via SID (instance ID) or Service Name. Service Name is the default. If a connection via SID is desired, pass the SID as the value of the -d/ --database option and add the --oracle-sid-mode option (flag).

12-13-21 the Collectorv2.61

Digest: sha256:bd0ba96208d714ecef4131867cf5d16372be0a33f416c1d6bd01f132c8517323

  • Updated the BigQuery collector to support current Google Cloud API enhancements.

  • Added a new Information Schema Collector. This collector runs via the {{catalog-information-schema}} command and is notably cataloging four CSV files that are provided to the collector via a {{--csv-file-directory}} parameter rather than connecting to a database. This collector is an option for customers with tricky DB setups that do not allow them to authenticate or establish connections to their DB via our normal the Collector collectors.

12-2-21 the Collectorv2.59

Digest: sha256:051f76748be1c6cf2c7557600dde71a39e1b822c9e49120881ce938f1c8c2b80

  • Verified the Manta collector works with MANTA R34.

  • Released the config file command.

  • Modified the Tableau collector to remove schema and database names from table names.

  • Updated the BigQuery collector to support cataloging all datasets in a project at once by default, and to be able to use cli options to select specific datasets in a project as well. With this last change, the  --dataset param is no longer required. The help text has been updated with new messaging to reflect these changes.

11-10-21 the Collectorv2.58

Digest: sha256:82ebc1cec46f70de000aa94695359bd28d65c2782afc362c9ce14fadc04eae07

  • Added a new collector for Hive (as an alternative to catalog-hive) that uses only the Hive metastore--it does not connect to the Hive server directly. 

  • The PowerBI collector now harvests workspaces and identifies other assets as being in workspaces

  • the Collector now emits “catalog events” into the catalog graph. These capture details about the cataloging process itself, including selected configuration options with which the Collector was run, and summary statistics about the catalog. The ingest process will soon extract this information from catalogs at ingest time and send them to segment for downstream analysis.

11-1-21 the Collectorv2.57

the Collector v2.33 Adds support for harvesting intra-database lineage from manta scans, and accommodates changes in MANTA R32 (aka 1.32). We no longer support MANTA versions earlier than MANTA R32.

the Collector v2.32 This release adds in collector support for Vertica db.

the Collector v2.31 Issued fix to ensure alignment of identifiers for databases referenced by Tableau and Looker collectors.

the Collector v2.30 Installed a config file-driven configuration (as a hidden feature for now). Issued a fix for handling empty powerbi objects returned by the API

the Collector v2.28 Bugfix release

the Collector v 2.27 Added the optional CLI option tableau-graphql-page-size to the Tableau collector which allows the user to set a number of objects to be included in each page of paginated queries.

the Collector v2.26 Updated the PowerBi collector so that if a report is unavailable via the API it will be logged, and cataloging will continue on the rest of the repository.

the Collector v2.25 This release includes better and more user-friendly error handling and reporting. We have also added an enhanced collection of Tableau metadata via the Tableau Metadata API (graphql endpoint). New metadata includes data sources, databases, fields, metrics, and many more inter-object relationships.

the Collector v2.24 the Collector is now distributed via Dockerhub Additionally there are changes to the Tableau and PowerBI collectors, and the ability to change the level of error messages written to the console and log file, and a new subcommand to display the the Collector license text.

For Tableau:

  • The Tableau collector now emits RDF in which the object of `dct:creator` is a `dwec:Agent` instead of a string literal. This means we write additional details about the Tableau account that created the dashboard, via properties of the `dwec:Agent` resource. These details include: account name, account “full name”, and account email address (if they are populated in Tableau).

For PowerBI:

  • The PowerBI collector writes resources representing powerbi “data sources” that are now of a PowerBI-specific class, rather than `dwec:DataArtifact`.

Logging changes:

  • It is now possible for users to set the level (severity) of log messages written to the console and log file. By default, we write “info” level messages; users can choose to write only errors (level=“ERROR”), errors+warnings (level=“WARN”), or all messages including debug trace (level=“DEBUG”). This is useful if we want to have customers run the Collector with debug logging turned on, for troubleshooting problems etc.

Display the Collector license information:

  • License information for the Collector is now available as a subcommand of the Collector. To get all licensing information, run the command docker run -it --rm datadotworld/dwcc:X.XX display-license where X.XX is a version of the Collector greater than or equal to 2.24.

the Collector v2.23 Internal release

the Collector v2.22 Internal release

the Collector v2.21 fixed some timeout issues with Looker collector when fetching images from the Looker API. Fixed an issue with cataloging reports and dashboards based on user workspace permissions in PowerBi.

the Collector v2.20 With this release our Tableau collector now supports cataloging of workbooks and non-dashboard views as well as harvesting tags on workbooks and views. FIxed an issue in the Looker collector where preview images returned from looker api were missing.

the Collector v2.19 Includes a clean-up of the embedded help commands for several collectors and:

  • Fixes an issue with the Tableau Server collector when cataloging multi-site server instances.

  • Adds --tableau-site parameter to enable user to restrict cataloging to a single site (not required, by default all sites in the instance are scanned). Value provided to --tableau-site can be a site ID or name.

the Collector v2.18 The tableau collector now has a flag option --tableau-skip-images which skips the harvesting of preview images for views. Usage is like this:

... catalog-tableau --tableau-api-base-url= --tableau-username=admin --tableau-password=password -a sc-test3 -n tableau-test --tableau-skip-images

the Collector v2.17 Adds a collector for Presto

the Collector v2.16 This release:

  • Adds the parameter --all-databases to the Athena collector so that it can catalog all the databases accessible from the logged-in account.

  • Fixes some issues with datatypes for dwec:externalUrl predicates.

the Collector v2.15 This release contains the following:

  • The Tableau collector formerly had a CLI parameter --tableau-project-id which could be used to catalog only assets in the project with the specified ID. The parameter is now --tableau-project and takes either a project ID or project name

  • Update to the MANTA collector to accommodate a minor change in the MANTA API with v 1.31. Customers who have updated their MANTA instance to v 1.31+ will want to use the Collector 2.15+.

  • The Looker collector now works for non-admin Looker users; however, when the Collector is run by a non-admin, the emitted catalog will not contain any information about databases used by Looker analysis assets (access to database information in Looker requires admin permissions).

  • All JDBC collectors now populate two new properties for dwec:DatabaseColumndwec:columnDefaultValue  and dwec:columnIsNullable, which contain the default value for that column in newly inserted rows, and whether the column can be null, respectively. (Note that only some databases/drivers provide this metadata…we put it in the catalog if it’s there).

the Collector v2.14 Adds a collector for Looker. Minor update to the script that includes available versions in the error message if you don’t supply a version.

the Collector v2.13 Adds cli params with this version so it now possible to pass arbitrary driver properties through to the connection

the Collector v2.12 Adds collector for SAP (formerly Sybase) SQL Anywhere metadata collector

the Collector v2.11 Improves the Dremio collector’s handling of data sources nested within multiple layers of folders, and fixed a minor issue with the Dremio collector’s harvesting of lineage metadata from the Dremio graph API.

the Collector v2.10 Adds a collector for Domo and JDBC database collectors can now catalog all schemas in the database at once (default remains to catalog only user's default schema).

the Collector v2.9 Adds Tableau Server collector and extended the OpenAPI collector to include a few additional schema property metadata properties.

the Collector v2.8 Adds Infor ION data lake collector. Optimized collection of JDBC metadata (performance improvement).

the Collector v2.7 Adds a collector for PowerBI.

the Collector v2.6 Adds the Manta collector.

the Collector v2.5 Upgrads Java runtime.

the Collector v2.4 Extends handling of OpenAPI collector parameters and responses.

the Collector v 1.20 Addresses some memory issues and open-cursor leaks.

the Collector v.1.19 Adds writing statements to the catalog graph indicating that the catalog was the Collector by the Collector (with a version). We also added the ability to write database schema objects to the catalog graph.

the Collector v1.18, Allows you to specify alternate organization permissions and upload locations when performing an automatic upload of the metadata.

the Collector v.1.16 and the Collector v.1.17 Address issues with the SQL Server cataloger.

As of the Collector v1.12 we can support not only Glue ETL jobs, but also Glue Data Catalog tables and columns.

With the Collector v.1.11 you can:

  • Upload generated catalogs via the --upload / -U command-line parameters

  • Upload the the Collector log when uploading generated catalogs with --upload

  • Fetch an organization's current catalog with the fetch-catalog command

In the Collector v1.10 we added support for AWS Glue and AWS Athena including cataloging ETL jobs associated with an AWS account. There is no need to mount in a jdbc drivers directory as the Glue cataloger uses the Glue API, not JDBC.

dwc v.1.9 is a bug cleanup release.

It is now possible with the Collector.1.8 to use jdbc drivers on classpath as well as those found in user-specified JDBC Driver Directory (drivers in directory have higher precendence than classpath drivers).

the Collector v.1.7 is a bug-fix release

the Collector v.1.6 adds the support for arbitrary jdbc data sources and the ability to build one-off docker images for testing, demos, etc.,

With the Collector v.1.5 we add support for Oracle.
