So far, I have seen two approaches when it comes to implementing 3rd party DG tools with Connect.
First is to do a complex loader using SDK and go for full integration.
Second is to push just a URL to the technical piece in Collibra to Connect. I.e. when people need to know more technical details about an asset, they open a link to it.
Collibra is a full-fledged data governance platform and typically contains a lot of metadata that is not interesting for business users/ analysts and LOB users. So possibly the second approach may work better.
We are also using Collibra as our Data Governance platform. I just found out about Alteryx Connect. Would it be possible to use the Alteryx connectors to extract metadata which would then be loaded directly into Collibra (not Alteryx Connect). Basically I would like to use only part of the Alteryx Connect product (the connectors) and not the metadata repository part.
