  • Enum Constant Details


      public static final ElementOriginCategory UNKNOWN
      Unknown provenance.

      public static final ElementOriginCategory LOCAL_COHORT
      The element is being maintained within one of the local cohort members. The metadata collection id is for one of the repositories in the cohort. This metadata collection id identifies the home repository for this element.

      public static final ElementOriginCategory EXPORT_ARCHIVE
      The element was created from an export archive. The metadata collection id for the element is the metadata collection id of the originating server. If the originating server later joins the cohort with the same metadata collection id then these elements will be refreshed from the originating server's current repository.

      public static final ElementOriginCategory CONTENT_PACK
      The element comes from an open metadata content pack. The metadata collection id of the elements is set to the GUID of the pack.

      public static final ElementOriginCategory DEREGISTERED_REPOSITORY
      The element comes from a metadata repository that used to be a member of the one of the local repository's cohorts, but it has been deregistered. The metadata collection id remains the same. If the repository rejoins the cohort then these elements can be refreshed from the rejoining repository.

      public static final ElementOriginCategory CONFIGURATION
      The element is part of a service's configuration. The metadata collection id is null.

      public static final ElementOriginCategory EXTERNAL_SOURCE
      The element is maintained by an external technology. The metadata collection id is the guid of the technology's descriptive entity.
