Ability to extend IGC with custom Menus to initiate custom workflows for any Catalog or Data Asset

1) the ability to extend the IGC menu options for Glossary and Data Assets to call/initiate external programs. (such as as BPM )
2) the REST integration should take the form of passing 4 arguments:
a) the RID of the Glossary or Data Asset
b) the userid of the IGC user
c) a short text description containing a reason for initiating this program / workflow.
d) date & timestamp
3) On successful initiation of the workflow, the Unique Record Identifier of the worfklow instance should be passed back to IGC and stored with the userid, timstamp and short description reason as part of the Glossary Asset history - making it possible for IGC users to see if there are any existing Governance workflows related to that Glossary Asset - and being able to access them. Ideally a workflow status (open, closed) flag should also be available - perhaps maintained via a background batch process that updates this on a regular basis.
