The lineage harvester is a connectivity tool that allows you to create a technical lineage. The lineage harvester collects metadata from your data sources. Collibra then analyzes and processes the metadata, and creates new Table and Column assets in Data Catalog, with names that match those of the data objects in your data sources. If you integrate a BI tool, new BI assets are also created.
You can download the lineage harvester from the Collibra Community downloads page.
- If you want to use technical lineage via Edge together with the lineage harvester, ensure that you use the lineage harvester version 2023.04 or newer. For more information, go to Migrate the technical lineage of a data source.
