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.

Collibra provides some methods to copy or move assets to a different community/domain within the same instance or to another Collibra instance.

First is using the Export button where you can select a number of assets to export to a CSV/Excel file and then eventually import it to a selected domain using the Import button. This require some formatting and mapping to make sure that the assets are importable to a different domain. With this approach, you can retain the same identifier for each asset or create a new asset with new identifier. However, you need to make sure that the operating model is consistent.

Another method is the Backup/Restore, which is used to copy the full backup of data let us say from the higher environment to a lower environment of Collibra. This method retains the identifiers and will guarantee consistency on the operating model. However, this is only limited to copying data from a backup and cannot be used to copy a specific set of data. It also requires additional configurations to make sure it points to the correct source or system, not the previously configured settings.

The above methods allows the Data Steward and Data Custodian to find and understand the data they wanted to bring to different instances.

A question that might pop on your mind is what if you are only interested to bring a smaller or selected content? Say the use case is the business want to copy a content from a container such as sub community or domain to one or more containers representing a line of businesses and located to a different instances, we may call this as Federated use case. The Export/Import button might work but it requires manual intervention and will become tedious for the user specially doing it for an N number of times? You might think of using the Collibra REST API to build an orchestration or abstraction layer to automate all of these but there will be some complexities behind consuming the Collibra APIs (i.e. Output Module and Import API).

The intent of this integration is to provide a utility to be able to copy the community/domain content from one environment to another, whether from DGC or DIC, knowingly the complexity of consuming a number of APIs.
