DataStage® Release: 11x
Job Type: Parallel
OS: Unix
Additional info: We are on version 11.7.0.2
We would like to understand the ‘Application’ asset type better. I am not finding it documented to much depth in the IBM Knowledge Center.

Would the IGC catalog be a good place to document an organization’s application portfolio?

How does one create a new 'Application' asset and edit the details?

Our IBM team gave a quick and detailed response today! The key phrase to search on in the IBM Knowledge Center is "Extended data sources." Here is a web page I found with a relevant part highlighted. I am going to go ahead and mark this resolved as I continue to test it out.

https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSZJPZ_11.7.0/com.ibm.swg.im.iis.mdwb.doc/topics/c_externalSourcesProcesses.html

Quote:
You can create three distinct types of extended data sources: applications, stored procedure definitions, and files. The application type allows maximum flexibility for you to create an extended data source at any level of granularity. You can define object types, methods, and input and output parameters for applications to match the structure of your external data sources. While the parameters of an application might usually represent columns in a data flow, you can make them represent whatever structure is most appropriate to your external metadata.

They work nicely, and provide an easy way to extend the repository, albeit not as elegant as OpenIGC.

Thank you, Ernie. I am looking into Open IGC. I did not find it on the Knowledge Center so I am re-posting the link to your blog and the tech note links. Do you know if anything like this might be covered in the IBM Think conference in February?

Not sure at this point what is on the agenda.
