Subject [jira] [Created] (ATLAS-377) API: Return all super types of an entity
Date Tue, 08 Dec 2015 12:46:11 GMT

--------------------------------------

             Summary: API: Return all super types of an entity
                 Key: ATLAS-377
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ATLAS-377
             Project: Atlas
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Hemanth Yamijala


Currently, Atlas type API returns only the immediate super-type of a type. In some scenarios,
it would be beneficial to also know if this type is a descendant of some type. For e.g. the
Schema API only makes sense for entities of type DataSet. Given this, a UI can check if a
type of an entity is descending from a DataSet and based on that choose to make or suppress
the schema API call. To support this, all super types of a type should be returned in the
result of the type API.
