Adding assets from the default catalog to individual catalogs

Operation is easier if you can select data assets and data connections that have business terms assigned to them from the default catalog and push them to individual data catalogs.

Even if you automatically assign a term in data discovery, it reflects only the default catalog.

I think that it is an operational burden for each data catalog administrator to make data connections, add data assets, and assign business terms.

By allowing assets already registered in the default catalog to be pushed to individual data catalogs, you don't have to add data connections, data assets, and business terms to each data catalog.
