Effective in version 10.2, you can ingest custom metadata into the catalog.
Custom metadata is metadata that you define. You can define a custom model, create a custom resource type, and create a custom resource to ingest custom metadata from a custom data source. You can use custom metadata integration to extract and ingest metadata from custom data sources for which Enterprise Information Catalog does not provide a model.
For more information about custom metadata integration, see the
Informatica Enterprise Information Catalog 10.2 Custom Metadata Integration Guide
