The context string for an Information Asset is built from the connection string components. EX: the Hostname dcxidavknx003.epg.zzz.yy.com on port 1234 using a jdbc connector results in the context string jdbc:ibm:hive://dcxidavknx003.epg.zzz.yy.com:1234;databaseName=dbName
This context string is seen by users in the information assets view and is too verbose/technical for the user. The context string is also used in extension mapping documents.
There should to be a way to alias the context string (or rename it) to be viewed in information assets and used in extension mapping documents (and where ever the context is required).
EX: jdbc:ibm:hive://dcxidavknx003.epg.zzz.yy.com:1234;databaseName=dbName changed to NonProd.Location2
Then the context string in information assets would show the more business friendly NonProd.Location2
