How to get the list of expectations supported by a datasource?


We are looking for a function to programmatically fetch the list of expectations.
Even better would be a way to fetch only the expectations supported by a given datasource.

Maybe this exists already and is used to generate this table of the Documentation :books:!?


Not an expert, but I’ve been toying with a similar issue. If you’re in pre-v0.13 territory, you can create a batch and then use the inspect python module module to see all of the available expect_whatever() functions (and their arguments) using the getmembers() function.

In v0.13+ land, I think you can do the same but with a validator, though getting the specific arguments can be a little harder since the functions are now more generic. Haven’t quite cracked that part yet

The table of implemented Expectations by backend is currently maintained manually.

The direction that Ryan is pointing is correct, but we don’t have an official code snippet for it.
