How to Set Up Bots

The default account for any ingestion pipeline deployed from the UI is ingestion-bot. To configure ingestion-bot from the UI, go to the settings page, scroll down to the Integration section, and access the Bots tab.


You can either create a new bot or update the existing ingestion-bot.

Click on ingestion-bot and you will be redirected to it's details page, there you can

  • Revoke the token if already present
  • Copy the generated token
  • Generate new token
generate new token
token generate page

Click the Add bot button, and you will be directed to the bot creation page. Fill in the required details and then click on the Create button.

create bot

1. ingestion-bot

The ingestion-bot bot is created (or updated if it already exists) as a system bot that cannot be deleted, and the credentials used for this bot, if they did not exist before, will be the ones present in the OpenMetadata configuration. Otherwise, a JWT Token will be generated to be the default authentication mechanism of the ingestion-bot.

2. JWT Token auth mechanism

If you decide to configure a JWT Token for the authentication mechanism ensure that you have also the value http://localhost:8585/api/v1/system/config/jwks in your publicKeyUrls list:

  • For bare metal configuration:
  • For docker configuration, the value to be updated is AUTHENTICATION_PUBLIC_KEYS:
  • In the case of kubernetes, you have to update publicKeys values:

3. Redeploying ingestion pipelines

When the ingestion-bot is updated, we must redeploy our ingestion pipelines since the credentials used by the bot have been updated, and they will no longer be valid.
