===Data Scoping in the Central GOCDB===
 
Expected approx end Nov. The following tasks need to be completed to introduce scoping to the central GOCDB instance. "DONE" means completed in our current development version of GOCDB and not necessarily put into production.
 
 
* Enable database level tagging to allow scoping of data - <b>DONE</b>
 
* Modify PI queries to be scope aware (e.g. get_downtime?scope=Regional) - <b>DONE</b>
 
* Atomic database access - <b>IN PROGRESS</b>
 
* Add scoping capability to the web portal - <b>IN PROGRESS</b>
 
** This is being achieved through MVC implementation of inserting / editing objects
 
*** Add / Edit Service Endpoint - <b>DONE</b>
 
*** Add / Edit Site - <b>DONE</b>
 
*** Add / Edit Downtime  - <b>DONE</b>
 
*** Add / Edit User - <b>DONE</b>
 
*** Add / Edit Role - <b>IN PROGRESS</b>
 
* Remove old Non-MVC code - <b>IN PROGRESS</b>
 
* Remove old XML Input code
 
* Indicate what scope data has in the web portal
 
** When viewing an individual object
 
** When viewing a table of objects
 
* Add scope specific web portal views
 
** View Local Sites
 
** View EGI Sites
 
** Scope Specific Search

===Update Roles and Permissions===

===Establish a central GOCDB readonly failover===
 
A central GOCDB webportal failover will be installed at Fraunhofer ITWM. A DNS switch for the 'goc.egi.eu' domain between the production server and the failover server is in place. Once installed, the failover will be readonly in order to prevent data-synchronization problems.

Support Multiple Endpoints Per Service

GOCDB/Release4/Development/MultipleGRIS

Redevelop the xml_output module to implement nested XML collections [not confirmed]

probably using the Query2XML package. This is necessary because the existing XML Output module will only generate flat XML documents (e.g. that often map to individual DB entities). Currently SQL joins/associations between Sites, SEs and URLs cannot be represented as hierarchical/nested XML documents (for example, consider nesting multiple EndpointLocation objects and URLs within a single ServiceEndpoint element, see: Media:GocdbGlue2UnicoreV2.pdf). It is likely that this is a requirement for regionalisation to implement the proposed XML 'synch' docs described at: https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/GOCDB/Release4/Regionalisation/Data_Transfer_Format
