The Asset Catalog OMAS provides services to search for data assets including:

The search locates assets based on the content of the Asset metadata itself and the metadata that links to it. This includes:

The Asset Catalog REST API supports:

The module structure for the Asset Catalog OMAS is as follows:

###Search solution The search will return Assets, Glossary Terms and Schema Elements that match the search criteria. As the asset search is to be performed against on one or more repositories a search engine will be used. The search will be performed using the existing properties of the asset, glossary terms and/or schema elements. Indexing will be performed by the Asset Catalog OMAS according to supported zones. The search result will contain: guid, name (name or displayName), description, qualifiedName, classifications, zoneMembership (the basic properties of the element).

In order to get the full context of the element, a second call is performed. At this step, the specific relationships are traverse for getting the connection to the asset and to get the schema type that is behind the given asset. This call is using the asset global identifier and the asset type.
