Class Entry

Entry Metadata. A Data Catalog Entry resource represents another resource in Google Cloud Platform (such as a BigQuery dataset or a Pub/Sub topic), or outside of Google Cloud Platform. Clients can use the linked_resource field in the Entry resource to refer to the original resource ID of the source system.

An Entry resource contains resource details, such as its schema. An Entry can also be used to attach flexible metadata, such as a Tag.

This message has oneof_ fields (mutually exclusive fields). For each oneof, at most one member field can be set at the same time. Setting any member of the oneof automatically clears all other members.

strlinked_resource

google.cloud.datacatalog_v1beta1.types.EntryTypetype_
The type of the entry. Only used for Entries with types in the EntryType enum. This field is a member of `oneof`_ ``entry_type``.
struser_specified_type
Entry type if it does not fit any of the input-allowed values listed in ``EntryType`` enum above. When creating an entry, users should check the enum values first, if nothing matches the entry to be created, then provide a custom value, for example "my_special_type". ``user_specified_type`` strings must begin with a letter or underscore and can only contain letters, numbers, and underscores; are case insensitive; must be at least 1 character and at most 64 characters long. Currently, only FILESET enum value is allowed. All other entries created through Data Catalog must use ``user_specified_type``. This field is a member of `oneof`_ ``entry_type``.
google.cloud.datacatalog_v1beta1.types.IntegratedSystemintegrated_system
Output only. This field indicates the entry's source system that Data Catalog integrates with, such as BigQuery or Pub/Sub. This field is a member of `oneof`_ ``system``.
struser_specified_system
This field indicates the entry's source system that Data Catalog does not integrate with. ``user_specified_system`` strings must begin with a letter or underscore and can only contain letters, numbers, and underscores; are case insensitive; must be at least 1 character and at most 64 characters long. This field is a member of `oneof`_ ``system``.
google.cloud.datacatalog_v1beta1.types.GcsFilesetSpecgcs_fileset_spec
Specification that applies to a Cloud Storage fileset. This is only valid on entries of type FILESET. This field is a member of `oneof`_ ``type_spec``.
google.cloud.datacatalog_v1beta1.types.BigQueryTableSpecbigquery_table_spec
Specification that applies to a BigQuery table. This is only valid on entries of type ``TABLE``. This field is a member of `oneof`_ ``type_spec``.
google.cloud.datacatalog_v1beta1.types.BigQueryDateShardedSpecbigquery_date_sharded_spec
Specification for a group of BigQuery tables with name pattern ``[prefix]YYYYMMDD``. Context: https://cloud.google.com/bigquery/docs/partitioned-tables#partitioning_versus_sharding. This field is a member of `oneof`_ ``type_spec``.
strdisplay_name
Display information such as title and description. A short name to identify the entry, for example, "Analytics Data - Jan 2011". Default value is an empty string.

Schema of the entry. An entry might not have any schema attached to it.
google.cloud.datacatalog_v1beta1.types.SystemTimestampssource_system_timestamps
