In the Tetra Data Platform (TDP), an artifact is a digital object, such as the following:

  • Intermediate Data Schemas (IDSs): Consist of schemas that are applied to raw instrument data or report files, which are then used to map vendor-specific information (like the name of a field) to vendor-agnostic information
  • Protocols: Contain processing steps and configuration information
  • Task scripts: Contain the code for the business logic needed to process the data
  • Connector artifacts: Contain the definition, assets, and code for Tetra Connectors.

Artifact Requirements

Each artifact instance must include the following information:

  • A namespace that the artifact belongs to (common, client-orgslug, or private-orgslug)
  • A slug, such as lcuv-empower
  • A version number, such as v3.1.0

The combination of the namespace, slug, and version number indicates where the artifact is stored in the Tetra Data Lake, and who has permissions to access it. This same combination of information is also used to identify and organize artifacts within the TDP.
