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