Lineage overview

Lineage in Atlan is defined by Process entities. These link assets together by inputs and outputs, and there can be any number of each of these:

graph LR
    s1[(Source 1)]
    s2[(Source 2)]
    s3[(Source 3)]
    t1[(Target 1)]
    t2[(Target 2)]
    s1 & s2 & s3-->|inputs|p-->|outputs|t1 & t2

Through Atlan's APIs, you can create your own lineage as well as traverse lineage programmatically.
