News on loading sample and reference data
DevOps Core Team is working on getting reference data in. As yet, user data needs to be bootstrapped. Some scripts have been provided to accomplish this task so far. This procedure is a little error prone.
There are two pieces to the new approach:
Data loading might be turned off when the module is initialized, as one might not need all the sample data.
The data will be stored in a Fat JAR, there will be no need to use the API. The Tenant API can make use of it.
Question by Wayne to the group: Do we need to load (the sample data ?) at any time or just at initialization ? - Probably just at initialization is enough.
Another improvement: Modules get their database connection information on tenant initialization. The database connection will be stored in a tenant in Okapi. So far, tenant data separation happens by use of Postgres schemes. An instance of a module can only connect to one database. In future, it will be possible to spin up a module without needing to know where the database is.
This will allow one to have a test tenant and a test database. It will be also useful for implementing multitenancy in FOLIO.
Taking up Integrations again. Prioritize integrations.
Do the existing Edge APIs meet the needs of the Special Collection & Archives Working Group ?
More broadly, do we have existing Edge APIs to begin any of our integrations? - Tod
Banner is a system to get user data from. We should include it in our list of integrations.
The group already collected their integrations earlier, on this wiki page SYSOPS List of Integrations. JIRA Tickets have been created for the integrations. Some FOLIO modules for integrations are currently under development, the FOLIO NCIP module is one of them. And also the OAI-PMH module.
We agree that the new integrations concerning archive systems have to be worked out by the Special Collections & Archives Working Group. Two JIRA Tickets have already been created for this purpose (UXPROD-566, UXPROD-562 (EON), UXPROD-561 (Ares)). Once that has been done, we can think of maybe inviting someone from the SC & A WG to a SysOps SIG meeting.
The details of the FOLIO Edge APIs (needed for the integrations) need not be discussed at the SIG level.
In the meantime, we will complete our list of integrations: FOLIO Source Data and Integrations . This spreadsheet has been around since a while ago but rarely made use of. I encourage all members of the SysOps group to add the integrations needed by their institutions to this list. We will then prioritize our integrations in a future meeting.
- @Wayne: Start two Slack threads, on loading reference data and sample data.
