DataStage® Release: 11x
Job Type: Parallel
OS: Unix
Just noticed that the "Assign External Assets" no longer shows up in 11.7 - the part of an IGC Business Term where you could add URL links. This isn't listed as a deprecated function in the 11.7 release notes and it may wipe out some important links during IGC upgrades.

The Administration function where you setup External Asset Types is still there but it no longer shows up when you add and edit business terms. The "External Asset" page from the 11.5 documentation is missing from 11.7 documentation.

The Help link in the Administrator - External Assets page opens up an error page because the documentation has been removed:

That feature was deprecated. It was a nice feature as a sort of pre-defined set of custom attributes in a pseudo-custom object. My understanding is that it didnt fit into the paradigm/technical spec ...

Thanks Ernie. I got a similar response from IBM support - the feature is deprecated and customers should use open IGC instead. I am going to create some Documentation metadata objects to hold URL and descriptions.
