Report for July 2020

Achievements in Last Period

  • PURE Resolver Id API 

    • Completed

  • UniDesk API
    • Sign off of internal testing of API via WSO2.

    • API functionality being provided as an integral part of the upgrade being investigated.  

    • Liaise with Service Team regarding progression through internal Test and documentation approval prior to external testing.

  • Person ID resolver API for EDW

    • Need for this API was reviewed and confirmed. 

  • Project closure report raised and reviewed before being raised at WIS of 31/07/2020

Issues

  • With UniDesk upgrade on the horizon should we continue to develop the present API.  It was confirmed that the API being developed at present would remain in use during the staggered upgrade and was therefore worth continuing with.
  • Work within DTI029 to merge internal instances of WSO2 may impact progress as a result of staff availability.

Next Steps

  • Project closure report rejected at WIS of 31/07/2020.  Closure actions to be addressed and raised at WIS.

Report for July 2020

Achievements in Last Period

  • Weekly review meetings review project and agreed project can be closed.
  • Service Management and Development Services continued development of service delivery model based on review feedback.
  • Merge of WSO2
    • Work to customise for UoE specific URLs 
  • Project closure report drafted and updated following feedback.  Report submitted to WIS of 31/08/2020.  Closure rejected.

Issues

  • Present plan is for Service Management and Development Services to develop the initial service delivery model. Service management and development have little spare capacity to devote to this exercise and it is therefore taking longer than expected to complete. Once this is completed the scope of remaining tasks and responsibility for them will become clear.

Next Steps

  • Update closure report based on WIS feedback.
  • Resubmit closure report to WIS.
  • Merge of WSO2 continued as an outstanding task

    • Transfer of accounts over from ISG WSO2 to merged instance.

    • Sign off of WSO2 merger.

RAG Commentary
Amber due to resource issues within Service Management and Development mean that forming the operating model for APIs is taking much longer than expected.
