Collibra DQ User Guide

Standalone Install (Google Cloud Platform)

We've moved! To improve customer experience, the Collibra Data Quality User Guide has moved to the Collibra Documentation Center as part of the Collibra Data Quality 2022.11 release. To ensure a seamless transition, will remain accessible, but the DQ User Guide is now maintained exclusively in the Documentation Center.
This section provides information on how to deploy Collibra Data Quality on Google Cloud Platform.

  • A Google user account.

A successful deployment shows the sign in page when you open your instance.

Troubleshooting your deployment

After a successful deployment of Collibra Data Quality on GCP, it is possible that you receive an error message when you select your site address. If this happens, you can:
  • Check your network access and verify that you have the appropriate network tags.
  • Check that the firewall entry is properly defined for your install.
  • Check the URL and remove the s from https. Also remove the second trailing forward slash / after :9000. Correct: http://<your.instance>:9000/

Deleting your deployment

To delete your deployment, go to the Deployment Manager. Select Delete at the top of the screen and then from the dialog box, choose to either
  • Delete your deployment and all of its resources.
  • Delete your deployment but keep its resources.
When you select a deletion method, your deployment is permanently removed from the list of deployments on the Deployment Manager page.
