Watson Discovery Integration with Watson Knowledge Catalog to Govern Insights / Access to Collections

Enable watson discovery service over watson knowledge catalog assets and watson studio projects in a way that allows for governed access across collections and indexes. Similar to the way one can restrict what people can access in WEX, integrating WDS with the Watson Knowledge Catalog would allow for consistent enterprise policity enforcement for WDS clients and use cases--A BIG WIN FOR BIG BLUE!!!

    Hydro Quebec is requesting this functionality for their enterprise search capabilities driven by Watson Discovery where search results would only be returned if the user has access to the content. This would prevent unauthorized access of documents and/or content via Watson Discovery collections queries and integrated Watson Assistant Search skills.

    Agree with Dave Murrells below. We should eat ass much of our own dog food as we can eat while enabling this capability.

    This is under consideration and pending research. We appreciate your suggestion!

    As well as +1 on the initial request it would be great if the integration was through Egeria



    as this would potentially allow a broader ecosystem of tools to provide the role of WKC (e.g. IGC).   Obviously that would need work on both sides though.
