A governance event is information about an event that is sent to subscribers by supported mechanisms, such as in an email message or in a call to an application.
Governance events are events that are generated when actions occur in the system. Governance events include details about the asset and the actions that involve that asset. For example, in IBM® InfoSphere® Information Governance Catalog, governance events are generated for actions on an information governance rule that was created, modified, or deleted, or if its workflow status changed. Governance events are generated for actions on glossary assets and on information assets such as data class assets.
