0610 Annotations

The Annotation entity captures the discovered characteristics of an asset.

Annotations are created by the analysis steps in the discovery service. The attributes of the annotation capture the details of the discovery processing. The sub-classes of Annotation capture specific details of the discovered metadata. Each annotation is linked the the discovery analysis report it was generated from. It also links to each asset that the annotation relates to. Strings are used in many of the attributes to keep the model open for discovery service developers and the tools that process them.
