In the EDC 10.4 Catalog Administrator Guide it states the following under the Concepts section.
A pluggable component of Enterprise Data Catalog that extracts specific metadata, such as source metadata or profile metadata, from external data sources and stores the metadata in the catalog. A scanner typically maps to a single resource type. However, there can be more than one scanner for a resource type. Examples are profiling scanner and lineage analyzer.
What are examples of resource types that would have a lineage scanner. We have not come across this yet. We are currently using ADLS resource type and the JDBC resource type. We will also be using SAP HANA and Microsoft SQl Server resource types down the road.
Types of lineage would come from ETL type tools. i.e Informatica IICS, Powercenter and Data Engineering. As well as third party tools like SSIS, datastage and some database scripts.
