Column-level Lineage is not currently supported for Dremio.


Schemas for tables in external data sources need to be specified with quotes e.g., "Postgres".

Steps to complete:

  1. Configure user in Dremio
  2. Configure your data source in Datafold
  3. Create a space for Datafold's temporary views

Configure user in Dremio

To connect to Dremio, create a user with read-only access to all data sources you wish to diff and generate an access token.

Temporary tables will be created in the $scratch schema that doesn't require special permissions.

Configure in Datafold
