Question

Maybe old-fashioned, but still companies would like to have a documented repository of their data assets. So an export to pdf or word format of all the registered data objects and their documentation is welcome.

Hi Johan,

Thanks for the feedback.

This may be old-fashioned, but it is also an item already on our backlog. We'll use your request to prioritize it higher, but given current efforts and available resources it's unlikely to be available in the next few months.

For the time being, you may want to look in our developer samples for our import/export sample. This shows how to use our API to retrieve all catalog contents, and could serve as a starting point for a "roll your own" application.
