Discovery fall out queues for generating new terms

When doing discovery and mapping the terms many of the fields can't be mapped to a term. It is not a matter of AI not doing its job but there is no appropriate term. This applies to the ones that have no term assignment

During the discovery process, the person doing the discovery, should be able to create a "new business term" in draft format based on the field name that was discovered, without leaving the discovery function/page.

A new workflow is needed so the draft term assignment is forwarded to the Data Steward for their review, update or approval and this is sent back to the original person that initiated the workflow.

Once this workflow is successfully completed, meaning a new term is assigned and approved, the expectation is for this to trigger the analysis function of the discovery process without scanning database.
