Team:Data Access and Database
The task needs to be able to specify everything that needs to be in the policy file so that the butler can put and get data for a new dataset type.
Consider that the policy data can be split between the camera-specific and the task-specific parts. (KT was thinking of calling the camera part the "genre"), this potentially reduces the amount the task has to specify.
Another option is to hard-code some some of the policy in the butler itself:
- the path template (it could be assembled out of the data id components)
- if it's hard coded the task must pass the component dataId keys
- if it's not hard coded the task must provide a template
- python type
- storage type
there could be user overrides too.
