Dativa Pipeline API

Dativa Pipeline API

The Dativa Pipeline API runs a set of data validation, cleansing, and anonymization rules against an incoming dataset in a data pipeline.

It can run basic data type validation, session validation, duplication checks, and verification against external reference lists. When data does not meet the validation rules, the API can attempt to automatically fix the data or quarantine it for later investigation.

The API returns a report object that contains details on the cleansing that has been done on the data. The entries within this report can be logged locally, used to create an email report, or logged centrally to a centralized logging stack like the Elastic stack.

Key features:

  • Data type validation: Validating incoming datasets for string, number, date, and session type formatting and range checks using the Dativa Data Pipeline API

  • Anonymizing data: The Dativa Pipeline API support tokenization, hashing, and encyrption of incoming datasets for anonymisation and pseudonymization

  • Referential integrity: Using the Dativa Pipeline API to validate data against other known good datasets to ensure referential

The API can either be run locally using a python library or though the AWS marketplace.
