How to set up Monte Carlo

πŸ€“ Who can do this? You will probably need your Monte Carlo account owner to complete these steps β€” you may not have access yourself.

Atlan supports the API authentication method for fetching metadata from Monte Carlo. This method uses an API key ID and secret to fetch metadata.

Create an account-service API key

πŸ’ͺ Did you know? Atlan does not make any API requests or queries that will update the objects in your Monte Carlo environment.

You will need to create an account-service API key in Monte Carlo for integration with Atlan.

To create an account-service API key for crawling Monte Carlo:

  1. Log in to your Monte Carlo instance.
  2. In the top header of your Monte Carlo instance, click Settings.
  3. In the left menu under Settings, click API Access and then click Account Service Keys.
  4. From the Account Service Keys page, click the Create Key button.
  5. In the Create Account Service Key dialog, enter the following details:
    1. For Description, add a meaningful description for your API key β€” for example, Atlan connection.
    2. From the Authorization Groups dropdown, select Viewers (All) to provide minimum permissions for crawling Monte Carlo.
    3. (Optional) For Expires After, keep the default selection or select a preferred option.
    4. Click Create to finish creating the account-service API key.
  6. From the corresponding screen, copy the Key ID and Secret and store them in a secure location.
    🚨 Careful! The API secret cannot be retrieved later.
