Comments are informal messages or feedback. They can be attached to many places, for example an asset, a personal note, a community, a community forum or community forum contribution, a review or another comment.
Sometimes specific names are used for comments depending on what they are attached to. For example:
- a personal note comment is a comment attached to a personal note.
- a forum comment is a comment attached to a community forum either directly or via a community forum contribution.
- an asset comment is a comment attached to an asset.
- a comment reply is a comment attached to another comment.
The ability to reply to a comment (or a comment reply) means that comments can be chained together to show a detailed conversation on a topic.
The Asset Consumer OMAS enables the consumer of an asset to add comments to an asset. These comments are then visible to other asset consumers through the OCF Metadata Management APIs. The asset owner can also see the comments using the Asset Owner OMAS.
The Community Profile OMAS enables the owner of a personal profile or the administrator of a community are able to remove inappropriate or out-of-date comments attached to their personal profile or community respectively.
A comment is stored as a Comment open metadata type.
A comment can be attached to any referenceable. The relationship that attaches the comment to the referenceable treats the referenceable as the comment’s anchor. This means the comment is deleted when the referenceable is deleted.
