Atlas - Import metadata from a file (e.g. csv, excel)?

Atlas - Import metadata from a file (e.g. csv, excel)?

New Contributor

Hi,

Is it possible to import metadata into Atlas from a file?

For example :

- To populate a business glossary?

- To populate a catalog, e.g. populating hdfs model?

 

Thanks

Hello @Christ ,

 

Yes, it is possible. You can write a custom script or java code(atlas-client) that would extract the metadata from your source file and use the below REST APIs to insert it into Atlas.

For eg here, you can see a spark atlas connector -

Hope these documents help -
