Data Catalog API

Using the data catalog API you can extract data about projects and data models from AtScale. Then you can upload and use this data in third-party data catalogs.


To use the data catalog API you must have a special AtScale license. Ask your sales representative about obtaining a data catalog API-enabled license.


Enterprise data catalogs are essential tools in a self service-analytics infrastructure. They allow finding data from the various data sources available in an enterprise. If you want to integrate the models you created in AtScale with a data catalog, you can obtain the data using the Data Catalog API. This can be done directly or via connectors.

Using connectors

When using Alation or Collibra as a data catalog, you can benefit from using the connectors created by AtScale. For details, see the following documents:

Using the API

You can call the API by performing HTTP requests to the AtScale system and specifying what data you need. The system returns the requested details in SOAP format. Then you can upload the data to a data catalog.

For details on creating requests and processing responses with AtScale's API, see the API reference documentation.
