      Atlas provides a common approach to metadata management and governance across all systems and data within an organization. Today Atlas provides access to metadata. A connector provides access to a data source. As connectors are the proxy of all data, they can also be explicit providers of metadata.

      This JIRA proposes an open connector framework to manage connectors that provide access to both data and the metadata Atlas provides together through a single connector interface.

      This will help data tools to to better the exchange of information between platforms. It also offers new opportunities for the consistent enforcement of the governance policies and rules (e.g., rules of visibility). Source connector/connection metadata provides the nucleus around which all other metadata describing the data builds.
