Term Browser 

Met with the security group of the performance of the AppScan of the Term Browser.  We found some possible ways of improving the time it takes to get through AppScan.  One of the them includes testing running an appscan with a subset of the value sets loaded.  We are going to attempt this on the QA environment over the next couple of weeks.

Resolved a deployment issue on the DEV tier.

Produced both ASCII and HTML versions of the Neoplasm Core value set

Issue NumberDescriptionStatus

Value Sets: When a Value Set Node is collapsed, clicking on Expand All button does not expand the collapsed node.

Started to debug the javascript for expanding nodes.

NCITERM-634Collapsing value set tree nodes as default.

Exploring alternative approaches to implement the feature request.

NCITERM-730Migrate to LexEVS 6.4.

Preliminary assessment indicates that the browser will work with LexEVS 6.4 without any code change. There are some Lucent index and search related issues. Reported to Mayo regarding the failure of contains search on NCI Thesaurus using the “X-ray” search string.

Waiting for the Mayo team to complete the remote API before performing more thorough testing.

 09/10/2015  H H AppScan are taking long periods of time to complete.  For Term browser, the minimum has been 5 days.We are working on both the code base and configuration of the scan to try to improve performance.  We are also looking at open source code scanners that could possibly be used ahead of the AppScan to at least limit the number appscans required.

 7/17/2014Deployment of software, even small upgrades, have been a lengthy process.This especially affects smaller releases in which there are security or bug fixes. The Agile practices migration have been put on hold for now.
 09/10/2014Getting the environment in place for the Mayo trip to NCI.Need to get each of the environment (DEV,QA,Stage) in place before the Mayo trip on September 22nd.  We are currently one week behind.  The impact is that the Mayo developer will be onsite to work on the deployments and the tiers will not be in place. Currently we only have the DEV environment setup for the LexEVS API>
