Governance Workflows by Steward

As a business SME, owner, or steward assigned to a governance artifact, I would like to know when that governance artifact has been created, modified, or deleted. Governance workflows should be configured so that a steward on an artifact is listed in the review/approval flow rather than a group of people by role or a set of people for an entire organization.

In order to distribute the work of approving new governance artifacts (federated model with centralized organization) we need to be able to assign stewards as the assignees for subject areas where they are experts.

100+ users impacted daily by this at our organization.

    This idea is actually something we're implementing in v3.5 of CP4D coming out this year. Users will be able to configure workflows on governance artifacts such that the data steward on that artifact can be assigned as the approver or any other task in workflow. I look forward to hearing feedback once you are able to test it out!
