Use Case



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).

While the driver is free, using it in Collibra’s product is paid as we did certify that the driver works correctly in our platform. Before using, please verify you have purchased a Metadata Connector license. 

This Netezza JDBC driver is provided by Netezza and can be used in Collibra Catalog.

To register Netezza-provided sources, use the section ‘Collibra provided drivers’ in Collibra Catalog. 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.

Using this driver to ingest and profile metadata on the Collibra Platform is payable and covered by a license.

    • Schemas
    • Tables
