Asset Owner Open Metadata Access Service (OMAS)
The Asset Owner OMAS provides APIs and notifications for tools and applications supporting the work of Asset Owners in protecting and enhancing their assets.
Every asset has an owner property. This is the userId of the owner. The owner is responsible for the correct classification of assets and the assignment of connection(s) to the asset. The owner typically links the asset (or more likely the asset’s schema elements) to glossary terms and declares the asset’s associated licenses and certifications.
Asset owners can maintain a note log for each of their assets. They can view the feedback and respond to it. The Asset Owner OMAS generates notifications about new feedback linked to an asset.
The module structure for the Asset Owner OMAS is as follows:
- asset-owner-client supports the client library.
- asset-owner-api supports the common Java classes that are used both by the client and the server.
- asset-owner-server supports in implementation of the access service and its related event management.
- asset-owner-spring supports the REST API using the Spring libraries.
