Get the IDs for JDBC schema ingestion with the REST API

When you use the POST method of the /schemas/jdbc endpoint of the Collibra Data Intelligence Cloud Catalog REST API to register a data source using a JDBC driver, you must provide the following Universally Unique Identifiers (UUIDs).

Parameter Description
jdbcDriverId The UUID of the desired JDBC driver.
ownerId The UUID of the owner of the registered data in Collibra.
jobServer The UUID of the Jobserver used for ingestion.

Steps

  1. Retrieve the UUID of the JDBC driver.

    Use the GET method of the /jdbc endpoint of the Collibra Data Intelligence Cloud Core REST API.

    curl -X GET 'https://<your_collibra_platform_url>/rest/2.0/jdbc' \
    -H 'Content-Type: application/json'

    The response contains the UUID of the drivers as id.

    Note   You can add parameters such as the database name to retrieve just the driver you need.
    curl -X GET 'https://<your_collibra_platform_url>/rest/2.0/jdbc?databaseName=Oracle' \
    -H 'Content-Type: application/json'
    Tip   The response also contains the required connection properties.

  2. Retrieve the UUID of the Collibra user who will be owner of the ingested schema.

    Use the GET method of the /users endpoint of the Collibra Data Intelligence Cloud Core REST API with the name parameter.

    curl -X GET 'https://<your_collibra_platform_url>/rest/2.0/users?name=<username>' \
    -H 'Content-Type: application/json'

    The response contains the UUID of the user as id.

    Tip   Use the /users/current endpoint to retrieve the UUID of the currently signed in user.
    curl -X GET 'https://<your_collibra_platform_url>/rest/2.0/users/current' \
    -H 'Content-Type: application/json'
  3. Retrieve the UUID of the Jobserver.

    Use the GET method of the /configuration/jobServerInstance endpoint of the Collibra Data Intelligence Cloud Catalog REST API.

    curl -X GET 'https://<your_collibra_platform_url>/rest/catalog/1.0/configuration/jobServerInstance' \
    -H 'Content-Type: application/json'

    The response contains the UUIDs of the Jobservers as id.

  4. Use the UUIDs and the information about the connection parameters to build your API call.
    curl -X POST 'https://<your_collibra_platform_url>/rest/catalog/1.0/schemas/jdbc' \
    -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
    -d '{
        "schemaName": "<name_of_Collibra_schema_asset>",
        "jdbcDriverId": "d89fde06-02ef-43de-ab40-43700c91da15",
        "properties": {
            "host": "<url_of_the_Oracle_database>",
            "port": "<database_system_identifier>",
            "schema": "<schema_you_want_to_connect_to>"
        },
        "user": "<database_username>",
        "description": "<description_of_Collibra_schema_asset>",
        "ownerId": "00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000900002",
        "jobServer": "9cb2202b-ac91-45a3-a7bd-cc5b6c965be3"
    }'

    The example lists the minimum data for a connection to an Oracle database.

    Tip   The description parameter is not mandatory but you should also provide a description for the Collibra schema asset as best practice.
