Discovery Service Connectors

The discovery service connectors contain the implementation of the discovery services provided by Egeria.

Further information

Discovery services are responsible for analysing the content of assets and creating descriptions of its content (called Annotations).
The annotations from a top-level discovery service execution are grouped together and linked from the asset as a discovery analysis report. They run in the Asset Analysis OMES.

Once the discovery service has completed its analysis, an event is sent by the Governance Engine OMAS to any listening Engine Host OMAG Servers running the Governance Action OMES to process the results.

The interfaces used by a discovery service are defined in the Open Discovery Framework (ODF) along with a guide on how to write a discovery service.
