public interface ValidMetadataValuesInterface
ValidMetadataValuesInterface maintains valid value sets for the properties found in open metadata elements. Valid values can be set up for a property name within a specific type - or for all types that use that property name. The named property may be a string type, and array of string or a map of names to string values.
  • Method Details

    • setUpValidMetadataValue

      void setUpValidMetadataValue(String userId, String typeName, String propertyName, ValidMetadataValue validMetadataValue) throws InvalidParameterException, UserNotAuthorizedException, PropertyServerException
      Create or update the valid value for a particular open metadata property. This property may be of type string or an array of strings. The valid value is stored in the preferredValue property of validMetadataValue. If the property is of type string, this property can be stored as the property value. If the property is an array of strings, an element in the array can be of this value. If the typeName is null, this valid value applies to properties of this name from any open metadata type. If a valid value is already set up for this property (with overlapping effective dates) then the valid value is updated.
      Parameters:
      userId - caller's userId
      typeName - type name if this is valid value is specific for a type, or null if this valid value if for the property name for all types
      propertyName - name of property that this valid value applies
      validMetadataValue - preferred value to use in the open metadata types plus additional descriptive values.
      Throws:
      InvalidParameterException - the property name is null or not known.
      UserNotAuthorizedException - the service is not able to create/access the element
      PropertyServerException - there is a problem accessing the metadata store
    • setUpValidMetadataMapName

      void setUpValidMetadataMapName(String userId, String typeName, String propertyName, ValidMetadataValue validMetadataValue) throws InvalidParameterException, UserNotAuthorizedException, PropertyServerException
      Create or update the valid value for a name that can be stored in a particular open metadata property name. This property is of type map from name to string. The valid value is stored in the preferredValue property of validMetadataValue. If the typeName is null, this valid value applies to properties of this name from any open metadata type. If a valid value is already set up for this property (with overlapping effective dates) then the valid value is updated.
      Parameters:
      userId - caller's userId
      typeName - type name if this is valid value is specific for a type, or null if this valid value if for the property name for all types
      propertyName - name of property that this valid value applies
      validMetadataValue - preferred value to use in the open metadata types plus additional descriptive values.
      Throws:
      InvalidParameterException - the property name is null or not known.
      UserNotAuthorizedException - the service is not able to create/access the element
      PropertyServerException - there is a problem accessing the metadata store

      Create or update the valid value for a name that can be stored in a particular open metadata property name. This property is of type map from name to string. The valid value is stored in the preferredValue property of validMetadataValue. If the typeName is null, this valid value applies to properties of this name from any open metadata type. If a valid value is already set up for this property (with overlapping effective dates) then the valid value is updated.

      validMetadataValue - preferred value to use in the open metadata types plus additional descriptive values.
      Throws:
      InvalidParameterException - the property name is null or not known.
      UserNotAuthorizedException - the service is not able to create/access the element
      PropertyServerException - there is a problem accessing the metadata store
