Technical preview

Technical preview function is in a state that it can be tried. The development is complete, there is documentation and there are samples, tutorials and hands-on labs as appropriate.

The community is looking for feedback on the function before releasing it. This feedback may result in changes to the external interfaces.

Engine host services

The engine host services support the behavior of the engine host. They manage the start up and shutdown of the configured Open Metadata Engine Services (OMES) as well as retrieve the configuration of their governance engines and governance services through the Governance Engine OMAS running in a Metadata Access Server.

The engine host services also provide a REST API to query the status of the governance engines running in the server.

The internals of the Engine Host OMAG Server are shown in Figure 1:

Instructions for configuring an Engine Host OMAG Server are found in the Administration Guide.

Instructions for defining Governance Engines and Governance Services are located under the Discovery and Stewardship feature.
