Business terms are used to standardize the definitions of business concepts in your enterprise. Governance rules describe the characteristics of the data to make assets compliant with corporate objectives. One of the ways to add new business terms and governance rules to your catalog is by extracting them from PDF files. The PDF file that you upload in one of your catalogs in IBM Cloud Pak for Data is analyzed in search for terms and rules candidates. Apart from terms and rules, also tags are extracted. Tags are metadata items used to simplify searching for assets.
When the terms and rules are extracted, you can decide which of them to add to the catalog. They are imported to the catalog as drafts and need to be approved in the workflow process.
