LexEVS 6.3

The AppScan request for CTS2 on QA was submitted last week.  Security team said it was starting on Tuesday morning.

I will need to put in a ticket for deployment to stage after the scan passes.

Report Writer

Need a decision on where this functionality is going to go to start creating trackers and scope document.

Term Browser 

Working on some fixes to the automated testing application.  The use of SSL caused some issues that we are now fixing. 

The update to the application has been sent to the QA team to test out.

Received results back with 400+ high vulnerabilities.  With this error we are seeing that all of the value sets are failing.  We have a fix for this error in which we hope will speed up the appscans in the future.

Meta Download Validation App

Term Suggestion Form


NCIm Browser

 Evaluated the effort of expanding the automated test application to the NCIm Browser.  Effort for the NCIm browser should be considerably less than Term Browser.
