Business Glossary / Data Dictionary (Governance)

I am interested in thoughts and ideas on building out and publishing information related to data sourcing, business rules and related artifacts. Recognizing that one can capture information in the canvas and publish it, there are pieces missing (in my mind). Our sources are Salesforce, NetSuite, etc. which are ELT'd to Snowflake which serves up tables to Tableau. It seems being able to annotate in the Matillion canvas and publish to something like Confluence might be a reasonable approach but am struggling with formalizing a business glossary to surface lineage, business rules, owners, process relationships, data quality dimensions and usage guardrails.

Thanks in advance for any input or guidance on this topic.

Hi Christian,

It sounds like you’ve already found Matillion’s enterprise mode Generate Job Documentation feature. This is the closest thing that’s built in to the tool.

There is no specific treatment for glossary, rules etc, but there’s no reason why you could not express those as comments on the job canvas, and have them appear in the generated HTML documentation.

Best regards,
