Updates from Various Reporting Related Groups and EffortsVarious

The Reporting SIG is using small work groups to address priorities and complete our work. Each week, we will provide updates to the Reporting SIG from these various reporting-related groups and efforts:

  • Community and coordination: opening up a public instance of the LDP, and queries can be tested on it. There are still a few issues under discussion. Angela hopes to have an update soon.
  • LDP Data Privacy Working Group: Ingolf flagged personal data from mod-organization-storage, so that Nassib can anonymize those fields. Also, personal data fields in ERM reports were identified. Only one report (REP-158) may contain personal data, but this is currently needed only by Cornell in 2021, so it is not an immediate concern.
  • LDP SysOps Working Group
  • Software development
    • Here is a summary of changes in the past week:

      * Support for historical data has been added.  (It was previously
      disabled in the 0.3 release.)  See Section 6 of the LDP User Guide for

      * A bug has been fixed that caused tables not to be updated when an
      extraction succeeded with zero records.

      * Improved handling of cases where data record sizes exceed Redshift
      data type limits.

      * The date and approximate time when each table was last updated can now
      be viewed with:

           SELECT * FROM sys.loading;

      * The databaseUser configuration parameter has been renamed to ldpAdmin,
      and databasePassword has been renamed to ldpAdminPassword.

      * The LDP database user can now be specified via a configuration
      parameter, ldpUser.  The default value is ldp.

      * A few preliminary notes on Redshift database configuration have been
      added to the LDP Admin Guide.

      * A few notes have been added to the LDP Admin Guide on running the data
      loader in production.

Who is going to WolfCon in January 2020?All

We'd like to get a sense of how many Reporting SIG members plan to attend our upcoming conference. Please add your name to the second worksheet labeled "Attendees" if you plan to attend the WolfCon January 2020 conference.

So far, 4 members plan to attend. Chicago (and others) are still in the process of deciding who will go. It will depend on the draft agenda.
