Technical Glossary Segmentation

Provide a way to segment the technical assets so they are visible to only permitted users. It is possible within the Business Glossary section of IGC but all technical assets are visible to all users with technical glossary permissions.

    Thank you for your idea. Today within Watson Knowledge Catalog, IBM current and strategic offering for Data Governance; Data Quality and Data Catalog solutions, one may define multiple Catalogs along varied Business Units and such. Within each Catalog one can define an explicit set of users - viewers, authors or administrators. Further, one can segment the Assets across different Catalogs.

    Goiing forward, we are looking to adopt an additional and broader sense of access control, per Asset. This likely will be based upon a reference to a Category - that help define a semantic hierarchy.
