Class ConnectedAssetProperties

Direct Known Subclasses:
EgeriaConnectedAssetProperties, EnterpriseOMRSConnectorProperties

public abstract class ConnectedAssetProperties extends PropertyBase
ConnectedAssetProperties is associated with a Connector. Connectors provide access to assets. ConnectedAssetProperties returns properties (metadata) about the connector's asset. It is a generic interface for all types of open metadata assets. However, it assumes the asset's metadata model inherits from Asset (see model 0010 in Area 0). The ConnectedAssetProperties returns metadata about the asset at three levels of detail:
  • assetSummary used for displaying details of the asset in summary lists or hover text
  • assetDetail used to display all the information known about the asset with summaries of the relationships to other metadata entities
  • assetUniverse used to define the broader context for the asset
ConnectedAssetProperties is a base class for the connector's metadata API that returns null, for the asset's properties. Metadata repository implementations extend this class to add their implementation of the refresh() method that calls to the metadata repository to populate the metadata properties.
