Governance Action Framework (GAF)

The Governance Action Framework (GAF) provides the interfaces and base implementations for components (called governance actions) that take action to correct a situation that is harmful to the data or the organization in some way.

Most governance actions execute in external engines that are working with data and related assets. The GAF offers embeddable functions and APIs to simplify the implementation of the governance actions, whilst being resilient and performant.

Governance actions themselves produce audit log records and exceptions. The Governance Action Framework supports the development of stewardship services to analyze the audit log records and process the exceptions.

These stewardship services are built using the Open Metadata and Governance Stewardship Toolkit and they run in the Open Metadata and Governance Stewardship Server.
