Governance Request Type

The governance request type defines the descriptive name of a specific governance activity that the organization wishes to run.

The request type is mapped to a governance service implementation along with request parameters to configure the behaviour of the service in a governance engine definition as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1: Governance request types as part of a governance engine definition

Governance services are run by the Open Metadata Engine Services (OMES) in an Engine Host OMAG Server. The Engine Host Services in the engine host call the Governance Engine OMAS to retrieve the governance engine definition. When a governance action request is made, the supplied request type is used by the OMES to determine which Governance Service to run.

Further information

The Open Metadata Types model 0461 Governance Action Engines shows how the request type links the governance engine to the governance service via the SupportedGovernanceService relationship.

Governance engine definitions are typically maintained as a governance engine pack. They may also be defined through the Governance Engine OMAS
