When metadata managed by such software server capabilities is shared with an open metadata repository cohort, the members of the cohort need to take note that they should not update this metadata.

The server capabilities that are recognized as managing metadata are:

The identifiers of these software server capabilities are used to document the provenance of any metadata that comes from these technologies. Metadata instances that are mastered by specific software server capabilities are referred to as external instances.
