Welcome to Pacifica Policy’s documentation!

The Pacifica Policy service provides endpoints that define policy questions for institutions. This is separate from other services as certain operations required by other Pacifica Core services are more Policy base.

Practially speaking, when the question a Pacifica service wants to ask the Metadata service is sufficiently complex it should really be a Policy question. For example, when uploading data the ingest service needs to validate the metadata requesting to be added. This new metadata needs to be verified by some institutional requirements. So there is a Policy endpoint (several actually) that help ensure those requirements are met.
