Technology Preview Functionality

Data Collector includes certain new features and stages with the Technology Preview designation. Technology Preview functionality is available for use in development and testing, but is not meant for use in production.

When Technology Preview functionality becomes approved for use in production, the release notes and documentation reflect the change, and the Technology Preview icon is removed from the UI.

Technology Preview stages display a Technology Preview icon on the upper left corner of the preview stage, as follows:

Currently, Data Collector includes the following Technology Preview stages:
  • Cron Scheduler origin - Generates a record with the current datetime as scheduled by a cron expression.
  • gRPC Client origin - Processes data from a gRPC server by calling gRPC server methods and then reading the response returned by the server. The origin can call the unary RPC or server streaming RPC methods. Use this origin only in pipelines configured for edge execution mode.
  • Start Pipeline origin - Starts a Data Collector, Data Collector Edge, or Transformer pipeline.
  • Control Hub API processor - Calls a Control Hub API.
  • Start Job processor - Starts a Control Hub job.
  • Start Pipeline processor - Starts a Data Collector, Data Collector Edge, or Transformer pipeline.
