Governance Request Type

The governance request type defines the descriptive name of a specific governance activity that the organization wishes to run.

The request type is mapped to a governance service implementation along with request parameters to configure the behaviour of the service in a governance engine definition as shown in Figure 1.

Governance services are run by the Open Metadata Engine Services (OMES) in an Engine Host OMAG Server. The Engine Host Services called the Governance Engine OMAS

They are used by the Governance Engines to determine which Governance Service to run.

The Open Metadata Types model 0461 Governance Action Engines shows how the request type links the governance engine to the governance service via the SupportedGovernanceService relationship.
