Query regarding Data Lineage for Kafka Topics in Atla


Query regarding Data Lineage for Kafka Topics in Atla

New Contributor


               Greetings and wish you are doing good ! I am using Hadoop 3.1 version. I am connected Atlas to our Enterprise Kafka Cluster. My objective is to visualise the metadata of the Kafka Topics within Atlas User Interface. With the above objective in mind, I would like to ask the following questions:

1. What kind of data lineage facility for Kafka topics is available in Atlas ? For example, I have some metadata listed in a Kafka topic and can I visualise the same in Atlas

2. Just like Hive tables, can we have a similar data lineage across Kafka Topics?

3. What kind of Data Governance use cases can be catered through Kafka in Atlas ?

4. Does Atlas uses Kafka to communicate with Rangers ?

Will appreciate for your feedback as per your earliest convenience please.
