The Netezza JDBC driver can be used in the Collibra Catalog in the section ‘Collibra provided drivers’ to register Netezza sources. Leveraging this driver, Collibra Catalog will be able to register database information and extract the structure of the source into its schemas, tables and columns.
Collibra JDBC drivers can retrieve the following technical metadata from the source:
- Primary keys
- Foreign keys
This driver is not downloadable from a public website. You will need to retrieve the JDBC Driver available as part of your Netezza server installation. The JDBC driver can be copied from your Netezza database server, the JAR file is typically located in <netezza_installation_directory>/kit/sbin/nzjdbc3.jar (For example, /nz/kit/sbin/nzjdbc3.jar).
The driver has been certified with the username/password authentication for the following:
- Ingestion of technical metadata from the source.
- Profiling of the registered data source and calculate statistics that describe the data.
Data Profiling is not supported for tables with columns of National Character types (NVARCHAR and NCHAR).
Profiling of such tables will fail with an error as follows:
Table 'XXX' profiling/sampling was skipped for an unknown reason. Please check jobServer logs for more details.
Within the JobServer logfile the following detailed error:
job.catalog.DataSourceReader$ - SQLException trying to read table XXX: org.netezza.error.NzFeatureNotSupportedException: netezza.feature.not.supported
- Collibra Platform 5.7.5 and newer
- Netezza 7.2 and newer
