Description of Changes

New option to have multiple topics for a cohort

An open metadata repository cohort uses three types of events to enable peer-to-peer sharing of metadata. In previous releases, these events have all been exchanged through a single event topic. Release 2.11 provides the option for a cohort to use a dedicated topic for each type of event. This improves the time to register a new member in the cohort and allows multiple instances of a Metadata Server or a Metadata Access Point to access the cohort.

Details of these new options can be found in the Administration Guide.

Extensions to the support for Data Managers

The Data Manager OMAS has been extended to support the capture of metadata from Event Brokers such as Apache Kafka and API Managers such as an API Gateway.

There are two new associated Open Metadata Integration Services (OMISs) to support integration connectors that extract metadata from these types of data managers:
