    • refresh

      public void refresh() throws ConnectorCheckedException
      Requests that the connector does a comparison of the metadata in the third party technology and open metadata repositories. Refresh is called when the integration connector first starts and then at intervals defined in the connector's configuration as well as any external REST API calls to explicitly refresh the connector. This method performs two sweeps. It first retrieves the files in the directory and validates that are in the catalog - adding or updating them if necessary. The second sweep is to ensure that all the assets catalogued in this directory actually exist on the file system.
      ConnectorCheckedException - there is a problem with the connector. It is not able to refresh the metadata.
