What information is sent to Data360 Govern?

Data360 DQ+ sends metadata to Data360 Govern through a configurable integration. The type of metadata includes data stores, pipelines and paths, the rule library such as type, expression, placeholder name, semantic type identification flag, etc, dashboards and various other details. This integration allows Data360 DQ+ metadata to be automatically associated with Data360 Govern technical assets, which can then in turn link to metadata such as owners, glossary terms, lineage, process diagrams and similar.

Business Asset Type for Synonyms

The system will list those business asset types which have a Grammatic Type Allocation to "Synonym" enabled. You may choose one of those asset types for synonym field name determination. If you do not specify a business asset type explicitly, the system will attempt to find an asset type in Govern with a name "Business Term" or "Business Terms" with or without a leading "Enterprise " and where the B and T may be upper or lower case.
