Update documentation to be clear which datasources are supported to generate datasets in databand
Up to date documentation is always useful to the developers. It reduces time and effort spent trying to figure out how the product works. Currently databand documentation does not specify which datasources are supported yet, in terms of whether it will result in a properly recorded dataset in Databand. For example, the IBM Cloud Object Storage type when used in DataStage ETL does not result in a unique phrasing for its dataset path within databand. This means the same dataset when used across different ETLs do not get correctly identified and linked as the same dataset. This limitation is not documented anywhere. In speaking with the developers, I have confirmed the following is supported:
There are more data sources which is supported but in the beta version.
