PyPI version Build Status Coverage Status License PyPI - Python Version PRs Welcome Slack Status

Amundsen Databuilder is a data ingestion library, which is inspired by Apache Gobblin. It could be used in an orchestration framework(e.g. Apache Airflow) to build data from Amundsen. You could use the library either with an adhoc python script(example) or inside an Apache Airflow DAG(example).

For information about Amundsen and our other services, visit the main repository README.md . Please also see our instructions for a quick start setup of Amundsen with dummy data, and an overview of the architecture.

Concept

ETL job consists of extraction of records from the source, transform records, if necessary, and load records into the sink. Amundsen Databuilder is a ETL framework for Amundsen and there are corresponding components for ETL called Extractor, Transformer, and Loader that deals with record level operation. A component called task controls all these three components. Job is the highest level component in Databuilder that controls task and publisher and is the one that client use to launch the ETL job.

In Databuilder, each components are highly modularized and each components are using namespace based config, HOCON config, which makes it highly reusable and pluggable. (e.g: transformer can be reused within extractor, or extractor can be reused within extractor) (Note that concept on components are highly motivated by Apache Gobblin)

Databuilder components

Extractor

Extractor extracts record from the source. This does not neccessarily mean that it only supports pull pattern in ETL. For example, extracting record from messaging bus make it a push pattern in ETL.

Transformer

Transfomer takes record from either extractor or from transformer itself (via ChainedTransformer) to transform record.

Loader

A loader takes record from transformer or from extractor directly and load it to sink, or staging area. As loader is operated in record level, it’s not capable of supporting atomicity.

Task

A task orchestrates extractor, transformer, and loader to perform record level operation.

Record

A record is represented by one of models.

Publisher

A publisher is an optional component. It’s common usage is to support atomicity in job level and/or to easily support bulk load into the sink.

Job

Job is the highest level component in Databuilder, and it orchestrates task, and publisher.

Model

Models are abstractions representing the domain.

List of extractors

DBAPIExtractor

An extractor that uses Python Database API interface. DBAPI requires three information, connection object that conforms DBAPI spec, a SELECT SQL statement, and a model class that correspond to the output of each row of SQL statement.

job_config = ConfigFactory.from_dict({
        'extractor.dbapi{}'.format(DBAPIExtractor.CONNECTION_CONFIG_KEY): db_api_conn,
        'extractor.dbapi.{}'.format(DBAPIExtractor.SQL_CONFIG_KEY ): select_sql_stmt,
        'extractor.dbapi.model_class': 'package.module_name.class_name'
        })

job = DefaultJob(
    conf=job_config,
    task=DefaultTask(
        extractor=DBAPIExtractor(),
        loader=AnyLoader()))
job.launch()

GenericExtractor

An extractor that takes list of dict from user through config.

HiveTableLastUpdatedExtractor

An extractor that extracts last updated time from Hive metastore and underlying file system. Although, hive metastore has a parameter called “last_modified_time”, but it cannot be used as it provides DDL timestamp not DML timestamp. For this reason, HiveTableLastUpdatedExtractor is utilizing underlying file of Hive to fetch latest updated date. However, it is not efficient to poke all files in Hive, and it only pokes underlying storage for non-partitioned table. For partitioned table, it will fetch partition created timestamp, and it’s close enough for last updated timestamp.

As getting metadata from files could be time consuming there’re several features to increase performance. 1. Support of multithreading to parallelize metadata fetching. Although, cpython’s multithreading is not true multithreading as it’s bounded by single core, getting metadata of file is mostly IO bound operation. Note that number of threads should be less or equal to number of connections. 1. User can pass where clause to only include certain schema and also remove certain tables. For example, by adding something like TBL_NAME NOT REGEXP '(tmp|temp) would eliminate unncecessary computation.

task = DefaultTask(extractor=extractor, loader=FsNeo4jCSVLoader())

job_config = ConfigFactory.from_dict({
    '{}.{}'.format(extractor.get_scope(), ORGANIZATION): organization,
    '{}.{}'.format(extractor.get_scope(), MODE_ACCESS_TOKEN): mode_token,

                 task=task,
                 publisher=Neo4jCsvPublisher())
job.launch()

ModeDashboardChartsExtractor

A Extractor that extracts Mode Dashboard charts. Currently, Mode API response schema is undocumented and hard to be used for the schema seems different per chart type. For this reason, this extractor can only extracts Chart token, and Chart URL at this point.

You can create Databuilder job config like this. (configuration related to loader and publisher is omitted as it is mostly the same. Please take a look at this example for the configuration that holds loader and publisher.

extractor = ModeDashboardChartsExtractor()

If your organization’s mode account supports discovery feature(paid feature), you could leverage ModeDashboardChartsBatchExtractor which does a batch call to mode API which is more performant. You need to generate a bearer account based on the API instruction.

extractor = ModeDashboardChartsBatchExtractor()
task = DefaultTask(extractor=extractor, loader=FsNeo4jCSVLoader())

job_config = ConfigFactory.from_dict({
    '{}.{}'.format(extractor.get_scope(), ORGANIZATION): organization,

ModeDashboardUserExtractor

A Extractor that extracts Mode user_id and then update User node.

You can create Databuilder job config like this. (configuration related to loader and publisher is omitted as it is mostly the same. Please take a look at this example for the configuration that holds loader and publisher.

extractor = ModeDashboardUserExtractor()
task = DefaultTask(extractor=extractor, loader=FsNeo4jCSVLoader())

                 task=task,
                 publisher=Neo4jCsvPublisher())
job.launch()

ModeDashboardUsageExtractor

A Extractor that extracts Mode dashboard’s accumulated view count.

Note that this provides accumulated view count which does not effectively show relevancy. Thus, fields from this extractor is not directly compatible with DashboardUsage model.

If you are fine with accumulated usage, you could use TemplateVariableSubstitutionTransformer to transform Dict payload from ModeDashboardUsageExtractor to fit DashboardUsage and transform Dict to DashboardUsage by TemplateVariableSubstitutionTransformer, and DictToModel transformers. (Example on how to combining these two transformers)

RedashDashboardExtractor

The included RedashDashboardExtractor provides support for extracting basic metadata for Redash dashboards (dashboard name, owner, URL, created/updated timestamps, and a generated description) and their associated queries (query name, URL, and raw query). It can be extended with a configurable table parser function to also support extraction of DashboardTable metadata. (See below for example usage.)

Note: DashboardUsage and DashboardExecution metadata are not supported in this extractor, as these concepts are not supported by the Redash API.

The RedashDashboardExtractor depends on the following Redash API endpoints: GET /api/dashboards, GET /api/dashboards/<dashboard-slug>. It has been tested against Redash 8 and is also expected to work with Redash 9.

extractor = RedashDashboardExtractor()
task = DefaultTask(extractor=extractor, loader=FsNeo4jCSVLoader())

job_config = ConfigFactory.from_dict({
    'extractor.redash_dashboard.redash_base_url': redash_base_url, # ex: https://redash.example.org
    'extractor.redash_dashboard.api_base_url': api_base_url, # ex: https://redash.example.org/api
    'extractor.redash_dashboard.api_key': api_key, # ex: abc1234
    'extractor.redash_dashboard.table_parser': table_parser # ex: my_library.module.parse_tables
})

job = DefaultJob(conf=job_config,
                 task=task,
                 publisher=Neo4jCsvPublisher())
job.launch()

RedashDashboardExtractor: table_parser

The RedashDashboardExtractor extracts raw queries from each dashboard. You may optionally use these queries to parse out relations to tables in Amundsen. A table parser can be provided in the configuration for the RedashDashboardExtractor, as seen above. This function should have type signature (RedashVisualizationWidget) -> Iterator[TableRelationData]. For example:

def parse_tables(viz_widget: RedashVisualiationWidget) -> Iterator[TableRelationData]:
    # Each viz_widget corresponds to one query.
    # viz_widget.data_source_id is the ID of the target DB in Redash.
    # viz_widget.raw_query is the raw query (e.g., SQL).
    if viz_widget.data_source_id == 123:
        table_names = some_sql_parser(viz_widget.raw_query)
        return [TableRelationData('some_db', 'prod', 'some_schema', tbl) for tbl in table_names]
    return []

TableauDashboardExtractor

The included TableauDashboardExtractor provides support for extracting basic metadata for Tableau workbooks. All Tableau extractors including this one use the Tableau Metadata GraphQL API to gather the metadata. Tableau “workbooks” are mapped to Amundsen dashboards, and the top-level project in which these workbooks preside is the dashboard group. The metadata it gathers is as follows: - Dashboard name (Workbook name) - Dashboard description (Workbook description) - Dashboard creation timestamp (Workbook creation timestamp) - Dashboard group name (Workbook top-level folder name) - Dashboard and dashboard group URL

If you wish to exclude top-level projects from being loaded, specify their names in the tableau_excluded_projects list and workbooks from any of those projects will not be indexed.

Tableau’s concept of “owners” does not map cleanly into Amundsen’s understanding of owners, as the owner of a Tableau workbook is simply whoever updated it last, even if they made a very small change. This can prove problematic in determining the true point of contact for a workbook, so it’s simply omitted for now. Similarly, the hierachy of dashboard/query/chart in Amundsen does not map into Tableau, where charts have only an optional relation to queries and vice versa. For these reasons, there are not extractors for either entity.

The Tableau Metadata API also does not support usage or execution statistics, so there are no extractors for these entities either.

Sample job config:

extractor = TableauDashboardExtractor()
task = DefaultTask(extractor=extractor, loader=FsNeo4jCSVLoader())

                 publisher=Neo4jCsvPublisher())
job.launch()

TableauDashboardTableExtractor

The included TableauDashboardTableExtractor provides support for extracting table metadata from Tableau workbooks. The extractor assumes all the table entities have already been created; if you are interested in using the provided TableauExternalTableExtractor, make sure that job runs before this one, as it will create the tables required by this job. It also assumes that the dashboards are using their names as the primary ID.

                 task=task,
                 publisher=Neo4jCsvPublisher())
job.launch()

TableauExternalTableExtractor

The included TableauExternalTableExtractor provides support for extracting external table entities referenced by Tableau workbooks. In this context, “external” tables are “tables” that are not from a typical database, and are loaded using some other data format, like CSV files. This extractor has been tested with the following types of external tables; feel free to add others, but it’s recommended to test them in a non-production instance first to be safe. - Excel spreadsheets - Text files (including CSV files) - Salesforce connections - Google Sheets connections

Use the external_table_types list config option to specify which external connection types you would like to index; refer to your Tableau instance for the exact formatting of each connection type string.

Excel spreadsheets, Salesforce connections, and Google Sheets connections are all classified as “databases” in terms of Tableau’s Metadata API, with their “subsheets” forming their “tables” when present. However, these tables are not assigned a schema, this extractor chooses to use the name of the parent sheet as the schema, and assign a new table to each subsheet. The connection type is always used as the database, and for text files, the schema is set using the external_schema_name config option. Since these external tables are usually named for human consumption only and often contain a wider range of characters, all inputs are sanitized to remove any problematic occurences before they are inserted: see the sanitize methods TableauDashboardUtils for specifics.

A more concrete example: if one had a Google Sheet titled “Growth by Region” with 2 subsheets called “FY19 Report” and “FY20 Report”, two tables would be generated with the following keys: googlesheets://external.growth_by_region/FY_19_Report googlesheets://external.growth_by_region/FY_20_Report

A sample job config is shown below. Configuration related to the loader and publisher is omitted as it is mostly the same. Please take a look at this example for the configuration that holds loader and publisher.

        extractor=AnyExtractor(),
        loader=FSElasticsearchJSONLoader()),
    publisher=ElasticsearchPublisher())
job.launch()

Callback

Callback interface is built upon a Observer pattern where the participant want to take any action when target’s state changes.

Publisher is the first one adopting Callback where registered Callback will be called either when publish succeeded or when publish failed. In order to register callback, Publisher provides register_call_back method.

One use case is for Extractor that needs to commit when job is finished (e.g: Kafka). Having Extractor register a callback to Publisher to commit when publish is successful, extractor can safely commit by implementing commit logic into on_success method.

REST API Query

Databuilder now has a generic REST API Query capability that can be joined each other. Most of the cases of extraction is currently from Database or Datawarehouse that is queryable via SQL. However, not all metadata sources provide our access to its Database and they mostly provide REST API to consume their metadata.

The challenges come with REST API is that:

  1. there’s no explicit standard in REST API. Here, we need to conform to majority of cases (HTTP call with JSON payload & response) but open for extension for different authentication scheme, and different way of pagination, etc.
  2. It is hardly the case that you would get what you want from one REST API call. It is usually the case that you need to snitch (JOIN) multiple REST API calls together to get the information you want.

To solve this challenges, we introduce RestApiQuery

RestAPIQuery is:
1. Assuming that REST API is using HTTP(S) call with GET method – RestAPIQuery intention’s is read, not write – where basic HTTP auth is supported out of the box. There’s extension point on other authentication scheme such as Oauth, and pagination, etc. (See ModePaginatedRestApiQuery for pagination) 2. Usually, you want the subset of the response you get from the REST API call – value extraction. To extract the value you want, RestApiQuery uses JSONPath which is similar product as XPATH of XML. 3. You can JOIN multiple RestApiQuery together.

More detail on JOIN operation in RestApiQuery:
1. It joins multiple RestApiQuery together by accepting prior RestApiQuery as a constructor – a Decorator pattern 2. In REST API, URL is the one that locates the resource we want. Here, JOIN simply means we need to find resource based on the identifier that other query’s result has. In other words, when RestApiQuery forms URL, it uses previous query’s result to compute the URL e.g: Previous record: {"dashboard_id": "foo"}, URL before: http://foo.bar/dashboard/{dashboard_id} URL after compute: http://foo.bar/dashboard/foo With this pattern RestApiQuery supports 1:1 and 1:N JOIN relationship.
(GROUP BY or any other aggregation, sub-query join is not supported)

To see in action, take a peek at ModeDashboardExtractor Also, take a look at how it extends to support pagination at ModePaginatedRestApiQuery.

Removing stale data in Neo4j – Neo4jStalenessRemovalTask:

As Databuilder ingestion mostly consists of either INSERT OR UPDATE, there could be some stale data that has been removed from metadata source but still remains in Neo4j database. Neo4jStalenessRemovalTask basically detects staleness and removes it.

In Neo4jCsvPublisher, it adds attributes “published_tag” and “publisher_last_updated_epoch_ms” on every nodes and relations. You can use either of these two attributes to detect staleness and remove those stale node or relation from the database.

Using “published_tag” to remove stale data

Use published_tag to remove stale data, when it is certain that non-matching tag is stale once all the ingestion is completed. For example, suppose that you use current date (or execution date in Airflow) as a published_tag, “2020-03-31”. Once Databuilder ingests all tables and all columns, all table nodes and column nodes should have published_tag as “2020-03-31”. It is safe to assume that table nodes and column nodes whose published_tag is different – such as “2020-03-30” or “2020-02-10” – means that it is deleted from the source metadata. You can use Neo4jStalenessRemovalTask to delete those stale data.

Note that there’s protection mechanism, staleness_max_pct, that protect your data being wiped out when something is clearly wrong. “staleness_max_pct” basically first measure the proportion of elements that will be deleted and if it exceeds threshold per type ( 10% on the configuration above ), the deletion won’t be executed and the task aborts.

Using “publisher_last_updated_epoch_ms” to remove stale data

You can think this approach as TTL based eviction. This is particularly useful when there are multiple ingestion pipelines and you cannot be sure when all ingestion is done. In this case, you might still can say that if specific node or relation has not been published past 3 days, it’s stale data.

Above configuration is trying to delete stale usage relation (READ, READ_BY), by deleting READ or READ_BY relation that has not been published past 3 days. If number of elements to be removed is more than 10% per type, this task will be aborted without executing any deletion.

Dry run

Deletion is always scary and it’s better to perform dryrun before put this into action. You can use Dry run to see what sort of Cypher query will be executed.
