Use of Work Product for Ingestion
We understood that in the current set-up (OSDU R1), the data preparation involves creating work products (WP), which is a collection of Work Product Components (WPC) and ingest the whole set as part of the loading process. OpenDES does not have a concept of WP or WPC. And if we were to create a WP (by mapping it as a new Kind), will there be any impact to Ingestion pipeline & services that OpenDES brings to the community.
From the DD, the request is retain WP creation as optional item:
- If present, can it be ingested along with WPC/File items?
- If it is not present, would there be a validation against a systematic need to have WP in the storage layers and hence the ingestion will not go through?
