To mark data within GOCDB as EGI data a new
tagging system will be implemented. Such a tagging system will allow other
types of tags to be defined in future. These other tags can be used by NGIs
wishing to customise their GOCDB instance.
A new PROM class called Tag will be
introduced that can be linked to sites, service endpoints, downtimes, users and
user roles. We will create an instance of this tag class called EGI. If a site,
SE, downtime, user or user role has a PROM link to the EGI tag then the object
will be exposed to the EGI infrastructure through the PI. If such an object
isn’t tagged it won’t be exposed to the production infrastructure.
An EGI child must have an EGI parent (e.g.
an EGI SE must have a parent EGI site, an EGI role must have a parent EGI user
- Add a tick box to each affected data type (sites, service endpoints, downtimes, users and user roles) on the add and edit forms.
- The question mark button will lead to a page explaining that marking data as EGI will send that data to the central GOCDB portal
- The user interface should enforce the scoping rules set out above (EGI child must have EGI parent)
- The UI should also automatically de/select the EGI tick box for new objects depending on whether their parents are EGI objects.
- For example, when adding a new service endpoint to an EGI site the EGI box in the Add New Service Endpoint form should be ticked by default.
- Similarly if a downtime is to be added to a set of non-EGI service endpoints the EGI box shouldn’t be ticked by default.
- Change Browse Sites in the left hand menu to Browse EGI sites
- Add a new link to Browse Local Sites. This will also need a help button by it explaining the difference.
- When viewing an object (site, SE, downtime, user, role) it should be clear that the object is local-only.
- Site/SE etc. page titles will change to Local Site / Local SE etc
- Consider changing the colour of the headings on the page.
- This could be accompanied with a "Why is this page blue?" link.
- For each table add a EGI or Local column with a colourful icon
- Search results will include a separate section for local objects.
