Primary Actor  The manager of a national or thematic register or registry.
Goal     Make the asset extension known in the federation.

Pre-Condition  
Post-Condition Information about the asset and its extension is available in the federation's register of registers.

 

Register an asset in the federation - Alternative flow of events

Step 1 The register/registry manager compiles the metadata on the asset necessary for registration. The description should include at least the URI of the extended asset, the URI of the extension and (optionally) a label, a description and the organisation responsible for the management of the extension. 
Step 2 The register/registry manager submits the metadata on the asset to the federation's register of registers. The information could be submitted through a management user interface or an API.
Step 3a If the asset does not yet exist in the federation registry, a new register item is created for the asset in the register of registers. The asset includes the information about the submitted extension. 
Step 3b If a register item already exists for the submitted asset in the federation registry, the information about the submitted extension is added to this register item.
