Class RelatedAssetProperties

Direct Known Subclasses:

public abstract class RelatedAssetProperties extends RelatedAsset
RelatedAssetProperties returns detailed information about an asset that is related to an asset that is linked to the original anchor asset with a relationship. 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 RelatedAssetProperties 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
RelatedAssetProperties is a base class for the asset information 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.
