Integration with Datahub: does not work

Hi all :slightly_smiling_face:

I am trying to integrate GE in Datahub and I follow the documentation about it, which implies to add an action in the checkpoint.yml Great Expectations | DataHub

Is there someone that has been able to integrate them?

When I execute my script, checkpoint.yml is reverted and action deleted.

Hey @Ric_Denmark ! Thanks for reaching out.

Which backend & version of GX are you using? I believe the DataHub integration only supports SQLAlchemy backends, and may only support up to v0.15.50, possibly 0.16.16.

Additionally, The GX <> DataHub integration is maintained and supported by the folks over at DataHub – they may be able to provide more help for you over in their community.

Hej Austin. Thank you for writing me.

I use GE 0.15.50 and SQLAlchemy - no pandas here :slight_smile:

Since you wrote me, I started all over using the gx-tutorials and my code is not reverted anymore, I can run the GE checkpoint in CLI, but the metadata is not ingested in Datahub.

Metadata is sent but the validation tab is not visualised.

I activate the DATAHUB_DEBUG variable to true and I see that the Dataset URN might be the issue.

 - name: datahub_action
      module_name: datahub.integrations.great_expectations.action
      class_name: DataHubValidationAction
      token: 'string_of_token' 
      env: TEST
      platform_instance_map:  {"name_my_datasource": "Synapse.Data_Platform" }
      graceful_exceptions: true

When I run my checkpoint I get:

There are 2 dots in Dataset URN instead of 1 as it should be by reading the url of the dataset, where I try to visualize the validation tab

Solution found.

After activating DATAHUB_DEBUG it was possible to see which Dataset URN was used to send metadata.

This allowed to correct the arguments within :

btw the token should be within ’ ’ and without Authorization Bearer

Make sure that any yml file has the right GE version 0.15.50, in case you still find issues
