There are seven types of governance services:
Open Discovery Service for analysing the content of an Asset's real-world counterpart in the digital landscape. (For example, if the asset describes a file, the discovery service analyses the data stored in the file).
Watchdog Governance Service for monitoring changes to open metadata elements and when certain changes occur (such as the creation of a new Asset) the watchdog service requests action from other governance services by creating either a Governance Action, a Governance Action Process or an Incident Report.
Verification Governance Service for testing the properties of specific open metadata elements to ensure they are set up correctly or do not indicate a situation where governance activity is required. The results returned from the verification service can be used to trigger other governance services as part of a Governance Action Process.
Triage Governance Service for making decisions on how to handle a specific situation or incident. Often this involves a human decision maker.
Remediation Governance Service for correcting errors in open metadata or the digital landscape it represents.
Provisioning Governance Service for configuring, enabling, provisioning resources in the digital landscape. Often these provisioning services manage the cataloguing of new assets and the lineage between them.
Related governance services are packaged together in a specific types of governance engine and enabled in one or more Engine Host OMAG Servers. They run in the appropriate Open Metadata Engine Service (OMES) as shown in the table below.
