Business Glossary needs to cull unusable formerly "technical terms values" from "actionable business term" drop down

Drop down contains business terms that aren't actionable since they are not allowed when building rules.

Why is it useful?

when i create terms the  drop down for actionable business terms should be accurate.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? as a catalog user creating business glossary terms i should not be able to pick up values for actionable business terms that cannot be used in policy rules.
How should it work?

no workaround

    @paultay  Can you give an example of the terms that you are seeing in the list that should not be there?

    I think the experience is less that optimal, but I didnt see anything that should not be there I don't think.

    Glossary Terms can map to a number of things that currently show in one list with no search. They can map to:

    • Attribute Classifiers (such as SSN)
    • Asset Classifiers (such as PII)
    • DPS internal terms (such as username)

    Are you referring to chopping out the terms that we also chopped out of the DPS rule builder? If so I agree and we should raise it as a defect.
