Catalog

Use the Catalog API to retrieve and manage sources and spaces as well as the folders, files, tables, and views they contain. The Catalog API also includes endpoints for retrieving lineage information for datasets and for creating and managing tags, wikis, privileges, and grants on catalog objects.

Use the Catalog API endpoint described on this page to retrieve a list of the spaces and sources in your Dremio organization. The response contains the IDs required to make requests to other Catalog API endpoints to create, retrieve, update, and delete objects in your catalog.

Enum: SPACE, SOURCE, FOLDER, HOME

Example: SPACE


stats Object

Information about the number of datasets in the catalog object and whether the dataset count is bounded. Appears in the response only if the request URL includes the datasetCount query parameter.

Example: {"datasetCount": 18,"datasetCountBounded": false}


createdAt String

Example: 2023-02-14T19:28:40.840Z


permissions Array of String

Example: ["READ,"WRITE","ALTER_REFLECTION","SELECT","ALTER","VIEW_REFLECTION","MODIFY","MANAGE_GRANTS","CREATE_TABLE","DROP","EXTERNAL_QUERY","INSERT","TRUNCATE","DELETE","UPDATE","EXECUTE","CREATE_SOURCE","ALL"]

Attributes of the stats Object

datasetCount Integer
