This entry is one of many in a series that describes the InfoSphere Open IGC API, which allows you to define your own objects for information governance using InfoSphere Information Server and the Information Governance Catalog.

Updating Your Bundle
Original post in this series:
Open IGC is here!
Here are some sample bundles for you! These bundles correspond to the use cases that I have been describing within this blog series (see “Original post” above). Each .zip file contains a directory structure that is formatted as I described in one of my early posts on bundle design (Open IGC: Defining a new bundle!). These bundles are for demonstration and learning purposes only. There are no warranties or certified methodologies implied.
Each bundle is complete with the asset_type_descriptor, along with several instance publishing upload files and one or more flow model uploads (if applicable to the use case). I have tried to include examples of various techniques, some of which I have already reviewed in these posts, or intend to in the near future. The values for various string properties are fictitious, and in some cases, just repeated and copied in the interest of more quickly building the example. This is especially true with the asset_ids (attribute ID= in the publishing and flow upload xmls), whose values are fairly random. These xml documents were crafted by hand — a good way to start testing — but ultimately, most of you will probably generate these unique identifiers programmatically. The prior posts in this series are enough to help you take these examples, register their bundles and upload their assets and lineage specifications. Then you can play with the instances within IGC, add new ones, update property values via the user interface or with new xml’s, and get further inspired to build your own!
Let me know if you have any problems accessing these zip file, or if you have any further questions about their use. — and let me know if you would like to also share your own creative bundles!
Note: This site doesn’t allow me to upload .zip files, so the files at these url’s have been renamed with “.ppt” as an additional suffix. Just rename them after download. They are normal .zip files.
