Subject [jira] [Commented] (ATLAS-172) Be able to specify a description with a Trait definition
Date Fri, 29 Jan 2016 19:37:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ATLAS-172?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15124066#comment-15124066

Erik Bergenholtz commented on ATLAS-172:
----------------------------------------

[~neergupta] - 

This requires further discussion. However,
1) adding a description field to the type class would satisfy my vision of the requirement.

2) Yes, this would be required.
3) Uncertain. When selecting a Trait/Tag there needs to be a [reasonably] simple way of distinguishing
between various similar tags/traits (especially when selecting a parent trait, or attaching
a trait to an entity).

thoughts?

> It should be possible to be able to specify a description of a trait definition at creation
time of the that trait; not just as the time the trait is associated with an entity.
> The use case is:
> A user creates multiple PII tags:
> - PII-foo
> - PII-bar
> - PII-baz
> Each tag should have an associated description with it so that the data curator (associating
the tag to the entity) will know which is the appropriate tag to use. The name of the tag
is often enough not enough information to go on.
