Source Enablement Packs

WhereScape supports extensible, user-definable connections alongside its built-in connectors, enabling connectivity to any data source that can be accessed via a script (e.g. Python or Powershell). Once configured, user-definable connections support standard WhereScape functionality for gathering enriched metadata via data discovery and generating integration code for loading data into a target data platform.

Source Enablement packs contain predefined configurations required to set up these new connections.
