Extract metadata from a dataset

I would like to extract some metadata (for example the column names) from a dataset.

 

Is there any existing recipe or preparation processor doing that, or have I to write it myself in a plugin ?

Re: Extract metadata from a dataset

Hi,

I would suggest leveraging the Python APIs to retrieve the information you need, such as the metadata or corresponding schema, from these datasets:
https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/python-api/datasets.html
https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/python-api/rest-api-client/datasets.html

More information about available functions can be found at the bottom under the reference doc section. 

Best,
Andrew
