Overview

For this specific integration (and all other Custom Integrations listed on the Collibra Marketplace), please read the following disclaimer:

  • This integration is a template that has been developed in cooperation with a few select clients based on their custom use cases and business needs.
  • While all effort has been made to encompass a range of typical usage scenarios, specific needs beyond this may require chargeable template customization.
  • With this in mind, we have made sure that the template is available as source code and readily modifiable to suit the client's particular use case.

Alteryx is a software solution that allows users to quickly access, manipulate, analyze, and output data. The way Alteryx builds workflows becomes a form of process documentation allowing users to see, collaborate on, support, and enhance the process. Data can be read and written to files, databases, and APIs.

This integration will extract the information about workflows from the configured Alteryx Gallery instance and ingest this information into Collibra as assets and relations. This information will be focused on the inputs and outputs of every workflow.

Use Cases

This integration allows the user to get visibility of the Alteryx workflows details and lineage by being able to visualize the inputs that Alteryx workflows are receiving (databases and files) as well as the outputs where the data is returned (writing in a database, a file or posting to a Tableau server). The integration also provides some information like the queries used to read the corresponding input data from a database.

Elements in Scope

The integration is designed to retrieve the following metadata from Alteryx:

  • Server: Identifies the Alteryx Gallery from where the metadata is obtained.
  • Alteryx Package: A .yxzp file is a workflow package that includes an Alteryx workflow (in other words, .yxmd, .yxmc, or .yxwz) and all its dependencies zipped into a single file. This is what is exported from Alteryx Gallery.
  • Alteryx Workflow: An Alteryx workflow which can be ‘Workflow’, ‘Macro’ or ‘Analytic App’ (.yxmd, .yxmc, or .yxwz)

Apart from the items mentioned above, the integration will generate assets for the following types of inputs and outputs in a workflow:

Inputs:

  • Database
  • File

Outputs:

  • Tableau server
  • Database
  • File
