Business Problem

  • Cobol metadata is not supported natively by IMAM bridges
  • Client uses DataStage jobs (importing the copybook definitions) to ingest metadata into IGC
  • The process is a semi-automated steps with manual intervention

Lucid Approach

  • Lucid designed metadata extraction utility with the following features
    • Extract metadata from parsing the Cobol Copybooks
    • Filters at folder level to extract specific copybook metadata
  • Use Istool to ingest them as standard asset types (DB, Schema, Table & Columns)


  • An automated process for a full & delta load processing of Cobol copybook metadata ingestion into IGC
  • Supports updates to metadata preserving relations to existing business assets
  • Cobol copybook assets are modelled as DB, Schem, Table & Column asset types in IGC for easier consumption by business users
