As of 31.05.12 the GOCDB service is provided through two portals: a read only instance at and a read/write instance at We would like to consolidate these and provide the service through one read/write portal.


Two portals were provided to support the deployment of multiple "regional" read/write portals containing different data. These "regional" portals would publish their data to the "central" read-only portal. If a regional synchronising GOCDB is developed in future we can revert back to the old model.


  1. Bring up the changes at JRA-1 (Done 24.05.12)
  2. Create an RT ticket from the proposal and send it round OTAG/OMB (;
  3. Agree on a date
  4. Widely disseminate the change
    1. No more
  5. Make the change
