  • Schemas
  • Tables
  • Views
  • Columns
  • Primary keys
  • Foreign keys

You require a license to download and use JDBC drivers. Please contact your sales representative or Customer Advisory Manager for more information.

The license fee for JDBC drivers depends on the number of Connected Systems. This can be any data source which you register on Collibra Platform using any certified JDBC driver available on Collibra Marketplace.

This license fee covers metadata ingestion and basic profiling, regardless of volume and amount of tables or columns. In the context of the SQL Server driver, the Connected System is the SQL Server database.
