In Progress

  • ERM-2630 - Getting issue details... STATUS
    • Progress / Impediments: 
      • expecting some external service to use Gokb scrollAPI in chunks of 5000 packages (not content items), managing state and queue position
      • treating cursor/state as black box for now
      • should be able to use schemas/shapes mostly as-is
        • add package id to contentSchema
        • add comment t
      • will end up with 2 parallel ways to get data in
        • scheduled harvest for package ingest (current)
        • push service (this piece)
      • will need to refactor package ingest (harvest) service to separate out reusable ingest functionality
      • support either harvest or push (not both) for an ingest
      • external push service will use TIPPs to set up content items, linking them to known content rather than creating new ones
        • provides transactional redundancy
        • provides a restart point 
        • reduce performance burden on agreements
      • so far: 
        • 2 trivial endpoints set up under `erm/pushkb`
    • TODO: 
      • get endpoints accepting/logging out json input
        • started
        • not wired through okapi as shape uincertain
        • can hit locally, passsing list of packages and log them out to a package schema
        • therefore package schema is accepting this approach
        • split schema to interdependently (1) expect and (2) not expect ...
      • wire schema into ingest process
      • dig into ingest process to plan refactoring
    • New unknowns: 
    • Help or input needed: 
      • Input needed from Ian to understand legacy technical decisions around, eg, remote kb, source/ref push/pull
      • To follow up on Thursday with Ian re domain model and shape of future shape/behaviour of external service
    • ETA for review: 
  • ERM-2612 - Getting issue details... STATUS
    • Progress / Impediments:
