Workflows are the key components to model your data processes in your Collibra Platform. They are composed of tasks linked together on a logical schema. They can be executed sequentially, conditionally, alongside, and so on. The tasks are assembled together in a BPMN file (Business Process Model and Notation) and can be manual, such as a user task, or automated, for instance script tasks. This combination makes the workflows highly customizable and powerful.
Workflows are business user-friendly
Workflows are integrated
Workflows are highly configurable
Workflows are interoperable
Workflows are shareable
Learn about the workflows prerequisites, install Eclipse, a widely used open source Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for developing Java applications, and the Flowable Eclipse Designer.
Create a simple workflow to display "Hello World!" in Collibra Data Governance Center (Collibra DGC).
Create and configure a workflow user task, give it a name and a description, assign it to a user, and add form fields.
Configure automated tasks inside workflows by using scripts and builders. Builders perform multiple steps to create and configure objects, and return the fully constructed object.
Create a workflow that notifies a technical steward when a tag is added to an asset and allows the steward to add comments and set an attribute.
The core API is the main entry point to interact with your Collibra Data Governance Center enviroment. Create, update or delete all resources such as users, assets, domains or trigger workflows.
The Import API is an efficient way to load large volumes of data into the Collibra Data Governance Center. The API can automatically differentiate between creating and updating data.
The workflow beans are a set of helper methods to develop workflows. For example, convert retrieved data into a CSV file.
The Catalog API allows you to interact with Collibra Catalog. Create, update or delete resources, such as classification results or profiling information.
The form properties are the UI components you can use to create your user task.
Workflow developer tools
The Collibra Command Line Interface is a set of tools aimed at Collibra Platform developers. It helps you get started with and manage your workflow projects.
An Eclipse plugin that allows Collibra workflow developers to interact with the Collibra workflow engine from within Eclipse.
