Egeria’s Connector Catalog
Egeria has a growing collection of connectors to third party technologies. These connectors help to accelerate the rollout of your open metadata ecosystem since they can be used to automate the extraction and distribution of metadata to the third party technologies.
A connector is a client to a third party technology. It supports a standard API that Egeria calls and it then translates these calls into requests to the third party technology. Some connectors are also able to listen for notifications from the third party technology. When a notification is received, the connector converts its content into a call to Egeria to distribute the information to the open metadata ecosystem.
Connectors enable Egeria to operate in many environments and with many types of third party technologies, just by managing the configuration of the OMAG servers. The Connector Catalog list the connector implementations supplied by the Egeria community. There are three broad categories of connectors and the connector catalog is organized accordingly:
Connectors that support the exchange and maintenance of metadata. This includes the integration connectors, repository connectors, discovery services and governance action services.
Connectors that support Egeria’s runtimes. This includes the event bus connectors, cohort registry stores, configuration stores, audit log destination connectors, open metadata archive stores, REST client connectors and the cohort member remote repository connectors.
Connectors that provide access to digital resources and their metadata that is stored in the open metadata ecosystem.
