This function is complete and can be used. The interfaces will be supported until the function is removed from the project via the deprecation process. There will be ongoing extensions to this function, but it will be done to ensure backward compatibility as far as possible. If there is a need to break backward compatibility, this will be discussed and reviewed in the community, with a documented timeline.

OCF Metadata Management

OCF metadata management provides common services for Open Metadata Access Services (OMASs) that are supporting the Open Connector Framework (OCF).

Connectors defined in the OCF are client-side Java objects. They support a method called getConnectedAssetProperties. If the connector is created by one of the OMAS clients, this method is configured to retrieve metadata from the same open metadata repository as this OMAS. The primary purpose of the OCF Metadata Management module is to support the REST APIs behind getConnectedAssetProperties. It has also grown to providing common handlers for OMASs working with similar metadata (such as the Asset Owner OMAS). In particular, it manages the filtering of Assets based on their Governance Zones and the implementation of specific metadata security methods related to assets.
