The upgrades can be accessed through the Environment page, where you can track the upgrade details with live view of the logs. You will also be able to check the status of the Repository Service through Environment as well. After completing an upgrade, your new license will need to be uploaded to Console and configuration edits will be required.

Installing the DGC on a Windows Server

Instructor:  

Rich Pinder, Support Engineer

Objectives:

  • Examine installation process of the DGC on a Windows server
  • Analyze troubleshooting the DGC installation process
  • Inspect newly-installed DGC instance

Description:

This course will cover how to install the DGC on a Windows server. First, we’ll cover how to download the DGC installer. Then, we’ll discuss the installation process including port values, memory values, and necessary directory and context paths. Finally, we will show how to connect to the newly-installed DGC.

SSL for Collibra DGC and Console

Instructor:  

Bhupinder Calotia, Technical Support Lead x Cloud Ops Engineer

Objectives:

  • Identify the benefits of enabling HTTPS
  • Utilize the steps to enable HTTPS access to Collibra DGC & Console
  • Plan how to disable HTTP access after SSL is running

Description:

This course will focus on enabling SSL access to Collibra DGC and Collibra Console. We’ll identify the requirements you will need to enable HTTPS, and demonstrate how to configure HTTPS, or SSL access to your on-premise installation of Collibra DGC. We will list the steps to package your certificate and private key to a P12 package, and examine how to disable normal HTTP access after you’ve gotten SSL working. Lastly, we will make use of the existing certificate you used for DGC to enable SSL on Collibra Console.

Unattended DGC Installation on Linux Server

Instructor:

Chris Agrinsoni, Support Manager

Course Objectives:

  • Utilize unattended installation process
  • Apply execute permissions
  • Distinguish settings for shell installer and installation config files

Description:

An unattended installation on a Linux server allows you to define all the settings the installer would normally ask ahead of time so you can run the installer in one fell swoop. We’ll start by downloading the correct installer for the intended DGC version and upload it to the Linux instance. The download will contain two files, the DGC 5.60 Linux installer, which is a shell installer, and the installation config file. We’ll set permissions to execute and begin to run the installer. Next we’ll begin editing the installation config file, which is in JSON format. Examples of the parameters include repository memory, minimum and maximum memory for the DGC and DGC ports. After all settings are complete the installer runs, we’ll log into Collibra Console and start the default environment. This will launch the DGC for the first time and we’ll also address licensing issues at this time.

Collibra Platform as a Managed Service Hosted in the Cloud

Instructor:

Tom Dejonghe, Senior Director of Transformation

Objectives:

  • Explain Collibra Platform as software-as-a-service
  • Compare cloud and on-premise configurations
  • Summarize on-premise migration to cloud

Description:

Choosing the Collibra Platform 5.7 to be delivered as a software-as-a-service with the cloud solution offers numerous beneficial capabilities.  The benefits offer better scalability, high availability, and overall better performance experience for your end users. Collibra cloud also offers more capabilities to our cloud customers than on-premise, including reporting data-as-a-service and Automatic Data Classification. The Next Generation Platform will only be available to our cloud customers. Migrating to 5.7 and upgrading to API v2 now will clear the pathway to upgrade to the upcoming release of the Next Generation Platform.

Performance Improvements

Instructor:

Yuri Manders, Inbound Product Manager

Course Objectives:

  • Compare concurrency tests of 5.6 vs 5.7
  • Summarize reduced history size
  • Explain summary lineage diagrams

Description:

In this course, we will address several performance improvements in the 5.7 release. The improvements include scalability, illustrating improved response times with growing volume and hardware, and the repository and backup sizes have been reduced due to reduced history size. Disabling automatic hyperlinking has resulted in a significant performance leap, and the new summary lineage node is a collapsed boxing node, where all contained nodes and edges have been removed. This results in diagrams that render more quickly with less demands on the client side.
