Domo Global Data Lineage

I am looking to get a sense of the data lineage for all of our datasets/dataflows in an attempt to consolidate and properly organize.  Is there a way get this in list form so I do not have to use the data lineage function in each dataflow individually?

    There is a recently recent Connector called Domo Governance Datasets that will allow you to generate a Dataflow Details report. This creates a dataset with each of your dataflows, its input datasets, and its output datasets. You can then use this data to create cards or tables to view these relationships instead of using the visual lineage tool.

     

    What you will need:
    Customer
    Enter your customer name. Your customer name is the part in the URL that before .domo.com. Ex: If your Domo instance is located at https://some-customer.domo.com, then your customer name is some-customer.
    API Key
    Domo Access Token. See FAQ and http://knowledge.domo.com?cid=accesstokens for details.
     
     
    I hope that helps!

  • Hi

     

    Any idea if there is a QuickStart App coming for Domo Governance? I really like to idea of this but it would simply take too much time I cannot afford to set something up that I could use.

    This Domo Governance Datasets has no field showing the exact transformation that happened in the dataflow. For example what kind of join was used or filtering used.

    Is it possible to get this details from he Data governance dataset or another app?

    @Afolabi that data does not exist in a dataset. You could sniff network traffic to uncover Domo's APIs and then create a dataset using tools outside of Domo like Powershell or Python.

    @jaeW_at_Onyx Is there a documentation on how to go about this?
