>                 Key: ATLAS-1662
>                 URL:
>             Project: Atlas
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Nigel Jones
> Today Ranger obtains classification ("tags") from atlas via a tagsync process which
>  - looks at interesting types
>  - going through entities of those types
>  - pulling traits/trait instances to get tags
>  - formulating these into a map
>  - persisting in ranger
> ATLAS-1410 proposes a new enterprise ready glossary which allows for a more sophticated
approach to classification.
> To support this we will develop a new consumer-centric ("omas") API to support Ranger
or other enforcement engines . The implementation behind the first function of this API will
navigate the new glossary structure to present ranger with the simplified entity:classification
map it needs rather than the more elaborate structure of the glossary. 
> A new ranger tagsync process will then use this api to push tags into ranger without
needing changes 
> More generally this API will support anything an enforcement engine needs
> more detail to follow
> (Note to observers: could you assign this one to me or grant permission)
