Egeria features

The Egeria features describe the value-add features that Egeria adds to its ability to synchronize metadata between different tools and catalogues.

  • Anchor Management - grouping metadata elements into larger objects so that they can share a common lifecycle.
  • Cohort Operation - How does an open metadata repository cohort work.
  • Discovery and Stewardship - automated metadata discovery and stewardship of results.
  • Duplicate Management - linking metadata elements that represent the same resource so that these duplicates are automatically merged and do not bloat metadata query results.
  • Effectivity Dating - adding an optional start and end date to metadata elements to limit when they can be returned on a metadata query.
  • External Identifiers - attaching the identifiers that metadata elements are know as in external tools and platforms to make it easier to match metadata from each system when synchronizing metadata.
  • External References - enriching metadata elements with links to related external material.
  • Governance Zones - grouping assets that have similar uses and/or governance requirements into governance zones. The assets in a zone can be queried and managed as a group.
  • Incident Reporting - reporting and managing the actions associated with a detected incident or issue relating to a metadata element or associated resource.
  • Integrated Cataloguing - using automation to automatically synchronize metadata between Egeria and external tools and platforms.
  • Lineage Management - Tracing the origin and uses of resources in the organization.
  • Metadata Archiving - capturing and storing metadata into archives for backups or to share standard definitions between organizations or independently deployed metadata ecosystem.
  • Metadata Provenance - maintaining the origin of each metadata element.
  • Metadata Security - ensuring metadata elements are only visible to/editable by the appropriate consumers.
  • Open Type System - managing your own open metadata types.
  • People, Roles and Organizations - how to synchronize information about people, what they do and how they are organized with Egeria to support security, collaboration, escalations and delegations.
  • Reference Data Management - how to synchronize code values and other types of reference data across your systems.
  • Synchronized Access Control - how to use metadata to maintain security information used to secure access to digital resources.
  • Templated Cataloguing - using existing metadata elements as templates when cataloguing new resources.
  • User Feedback - opening up the communication between resource owners and resource consumers.
