collibra is a program to manage term definitions.

what I need is an export from ARIS (*.csv) to collibra, where in collibra the definitions of the terms will be added and send back (via *.csv) to ARIS. (example terms: customer, process.. )

and all this needs to be automatic.

how can I do this?

Any help is very much welcome,thx

Hello Roy,

try to write a ARIS script that uses Apache POI to create or read *.csv files.


Use the ARIS script scheduler to automate the ARIS script:


Report class ReportScheduler - Method getDecryptedScheduleResult getDecryptedScheduleResult ( String sScheduleGUID, String sUser, String sPassword, boolean bIsPwdEncrypted )     Regards, Jens

Hi Jens,

thx for your reply

We chose to use XML in the end.

the script for the import/export is based on this post:



and for the automatic part, the scriptrunner.bat was the anwer:

you can find info here:


(the scriptrunner can easily be called via windows taskmanager.)

though, right now we create an simple xml export from some entities and attributes, can you tell me what the diffirence would be with using the AML standard?

The big advantage of using the AML format is that you can use the XML import/export of ARIS. You do not have to implement your own import or export script. But if you are using AML you have to provide all information that the import / export interface needs. And in many cases you don't need this addtional information for your use case.
