DataStage® Release: 9x
Job Type: Parallel
OS: Unix
Hi,

Is it possible to maintain the history of a file layout ( that is subjected to change on a frequent basis, the frequency can be once in a month, once in 6 months etc.). I am jolting down some of the changes that happens to the layout,

1. Addition of new attributes (like new column addition) to the layout
2. Changes to the technical/business definitions to some existing attributes
3. Deletion of some existing attributes etc.

Is there a way (or option) in Metadata workbench/Business Glossary that can store the history of changes happened to a field over a period of time ?

The primary purpose of trying to do this is to have a track of what changes are happening for the fields (attributes) over a period of time for better governance.

Any thoughts are highly appreciated.

Other than by taking backups before changes (and possibly registering these in a source code control system) I'm not aware of any option to maintain history in version 9.x.

It also depends on your objectives. The Metadata Asset Manager provides this capability when you import database metadata consistently into a particular import area. It has very nice comparison fea ...
