What data is Atlan actually bringing in?

Atlan allows you to search and discover metadata, not the data itself. 

As a data catalog of all your data assets, Atlan enables you to:

  • Extract metadata from source systems via pushdown queries or API requests.
  • Process data with the sample data and query features, both of which can be turned off.
  • Push down queries when sample data or query functionality is used — so, the results are neither cached nor stored in Atlan.
  • Integrate with your supported data sources via a service account with read-only permissions to the data source and complete control over these permissions.
