Enum Class PermittedSynchronization

java.lang.Object
java.lang.Enum<PermittedSynchronization>
org.odpi.openmetadata.frameworks.integration.contextmanager.PermittedSynchronization
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<PermittedSynchronization>, Constable

public enum PermittedSynchronization extends Enum<PermittedSynchronization>
PermittedSynchronization defines the permitted directions of flow of metadata updates between open metadata and a third party technology. It is set in the configuration for an integration connector and is enforced in the integration service (in the integration context to be precise).
  • Enum Constant Details

    • BOTH_DIRECTIONS

      public static final PermittedSynchronization BOTH_DIRECTIONS
      Metadata exchange is permitted in both directions. Synchronization is halted on a specific element if potentially clashing updates have occurred both in the third party technology and open metadata. Such conflicts are logged on the audit log and resolved through manual stewardship.
    • TO_THIRD_PARTY

      public static final PermittedSynchronization TO_THIRD_PARTY
      The third party technology is logically downstream of open metadata. This means the open metadata ecosystem is the originator and owner of the metadata being synchronized. Any updates detected in the third technology are overridden by the latest open metadata values.
    • FROM_THIRD_PARTY

      public static final PermittedSynchronization FROM_THIRD_PARTY
      The third party technology is logically upstream (the originator and owner of the metadata). Any updates made in open metadata are not passed to the third party technology and the third party technology is requested to refresh the open metadata version.
    • OTHER

      public static final PermittedSynchronization OTHER
      Another type of synchronization rule - see description property.
  • Method Details

    • values

      public static PermittedSynchronization[] values()
      Returns an array containing the constants of this enum class, in the order they are declared.
      Returns:
      an array containing the constants of this enum class, in the order they are declared
    • valueOf

      public static PermittedSynchronization valueOf(String name)
      Returns the enum constant of this class with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this class. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
      Parameters:
      name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
      Returns:
      the enum constant with the specified name
      Throws:
      IllegalArgumentException - if this enum class has no constant with the specified name
      NullPointerException - if the argument is null
    • getOrdinal

      public int getOrdinal()
      Return the code for this enum instance
      Returns:
      int key pattern code
    • getOpenTypeOrdinal

      public int getOpenTypeOrdinal()
      Return the code for this enum that comes from the Open Metadata Type that this enum represents.
      Returns:
      int code number
    • getName

      public String getName()
      Return the default name for this enum instance.
      Returns:
      String default name
    • getDescription

      public String getDescription()
      Return the default description for the key pattern for this enum instance.
      Returns:
      String default description
    • getOpenTypeGUID

      public String getOpenTypeGUID()
      Return the unique identifier for the open metadata enum type that this enum class represents.
      Returns:
      string guid
    • getOpenTypeName

      public String getOpenTypeName()
      Return the unique name for the open metadata enum type that this enum class represents.
      Returns:
      string name
    • toString

      public String toString()
      Standard toString method.
      Overrides:
      toString in class Enum<PermittedSynchronization>
      Returns:
      print out of variables in a JSON-style
