Description

When you load a business glossary resource that contains a business term with a rule asset and related assets from Metadata Manager, the Metadata Manager Service does not synchronize the related catalog objects in Metadata Manager with the related assets in the Analyst tool. The load log displays the following error:
BG links migration failed... The requested object does not exist in the catalog.
Workaround: To synchronize the related catalog objects with the related assets, unassign the rule asset from the term before you load the glossary. Reassign the rule asset to the term after the load completes.
