Import Tags from External Catalogs

  1. Click the Governance icon in the left sidebar and select the Tags tab.
  2. Click Refresh External Tags.

Link an External Catalog to a Data Source

External tags will be automatically detected when you create a new data source that originates in an external catalog, or they can be linked directly in the data source here:

Custom REST Catalog Information

When using custom REST catalogs the GET/dataSource/page/{id} endpoint returns a human-readable information page from the REST catalog for the data source associated with {id}. Immuta provides this as a mechanism for allowing the REST catalog to provide additional information about the data source that may not be directly ingested by or visible within Immuta. This link is accessed in the Immuta UI when a user clicks the catalog logo associated with the data source.
