The stewardship console lists two types of tasks: data resolution tasks and data integrity tasks.
Data resolution tasks are those that need the steward intervention to merge/resolve different information related to the same data record and coming from heterogeneous sources. Resolution tasks are most commonly created during data matching process.
Data integrity tasks are those that need the steward intervention to insure that data is consistent and complete. Data tasks are most commonly created during standardization and cleansing of data.
These tasks are assigned to a specific data steward in the tStewardshipTaskOutput component, the component that is used in the Talend Job to create/list tasks in the stewardship console. For further information, see the component dedicated section in Talend Components Reference Guide.
However, it is also possible for an administrator to assign a task to a specific steward manually from the stewardship console. For further information, see Assigning a task.
When a steward connects to the stewardship console, the steward can only see the tasks assigned to him/her.
These tasks have also a status, New by default. This status is automatically changed to Resolved when the data steward defines and merges the data in the data record associated with the task.
An administrator or a data steward can manually change any task status from the Status menu in the stewardship console. For further information, see Changing a task status.
