Module csv-enricher


This plugin is used to apply glossary terms, tags, owners and domain at the entity level. It can also be used to apply tags and glossary terms at the column level. These values are read from a CSV file and can be used to either overwrite or append the above aspects to entities.

The format of the CSV must be like so, with a few example rows.

urn:li:dataset:(urn:li:dataPlatform:hive,SampleHiveDataset,PROD)[urn:li:glossaryTerm:AccountBalance][urn:li:tag:Legacy][urn:li:corpuser:datahub|urn:li:corpuser:jdoe]TECHNICAL_OWNERnew descriptionurn:li:domain:Engineering

Note that the first row does not have a subresource populated. That means any glossary terms, tags, and owners will be applied at the entity field. If a subresource IS populated (as it is for the second and third rows), glossary terms and tags will be applied on the subresource. Every row MUST have a resource. Also note that owners can only be applied at the resource level and will be ignored if populated for a row with a subresource.
