Integrated cataloging uses an integration daemon to monitor a specific digital technology that hosts particular types of assets and automatically maintain the catalog with information about these assets.
For example, an integration daemon may be monitoring a database server, updating the asset catalog each time a new database is added, or a schema is changed.
Integration daemons support different integration patterns to meet the variety of capabilities of digital technologies. For example, it may poll the technology or listen for events from it that indicate changes in the assets. They are limited to the metadata supported by the technology they are working with
There is more information on the use of integrated cataloging on the integration daemon page.
