NodeGraph Help

This site provides guidance for administrators and users of BI tools who are deploying, configuring, and using NodeGraph.

How does NodeGraph work?

NodeGraph is a tool that extracts information from different data systems and links their information and usage between those systems to get a complete understanding of what is in there. NodeGraph automatically gathers metadata and lineage information from each targeted system.

Considerations when deploying NodeGraph

Nodegraph design principles and environmental considerations should be factored into the configuration of containers and rules setup.

NodeGraph connectors (legacy)

Connectors are purpose-built tools designed to extract metadata and resources inside BI and RDBMS technologies. Think of them as pipes through which NodeGraph can be populated with information.

Installation and setup
