Usage Workflow

Learn how to configure the Usage workflow from the UI to ingest Query history data from your data sources.

This workflow is available ONLY for the following connectors:

If your database service is not yet supported, you can use this same workflow by providing a Query Log file!

Once the metadata ingestion runs correctly and we are able to explore the service Entities, we can add Query Usage information.

This will populate the Queries tab from the Table Entity Page.

We can create a workflow that will obtain the query log and table creation information from the underlying database and feed it to OpenMetadata. The Usage Ingestion will be in charge of obtaining this data.

From the Service Page, go to the Ingestions tab to add a new ingestion and click on Add Usage Ingestion.


Add Ingestion

Here you can enter the Usage Ingestion details:

After clicking Next, you will be redirected to the Scheduling form. This will be the same as the Metadata Ingestion. Select your desired schedule and click on Deploy to find the usage pipeline being added to the Service Ingestions.
