    Thanks for your idea. IBM go-forward Governance and Catalog tool is Watson Knowledge Catalog - and this extends IGC. This support will be considered for WKC in a future release. Please use the idea portal to share ideas with the Watson Knowledge Catalog OM team

    Thanks for your idea, and we do agree there is a need to ensure that Assets which appear in the Catalog are complete and well represented, hence requiring certain properties or facets.

     

    We are evaluating extending the Workflow support for all Assets in the Catalog, and to allow one to impart business logic to prevent publishing an Asset where such properties are empty or invalid.  This would provide greater utility and support for the process to create and manage Assets.

     

    Today, one can invoke a notification when a change happens that checks if such required properties are not complete, but would not prevent the publish or import action.

     

    IBM go-forward Governance and Catalog tool is Watson Knowledge Catalog - and this extends IGC.  The new Workflow support will be introduced into WKC in a future release.
