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

Term Browser 

AppScan came back with 15 vulnerabilities for Term Browser 2.7.  In trying to fix the issues we may have introduced a bug on our search functionality. 

We have fixed this issue and provided a new tag to the QA team.

We met with the MSSO team about NCIt definitions in MedDRA browser.

Issue NumberDescriptionStatus
NCITERM-698MSSO Support.

Implemented a static HTML page to illustrate how the MSSO web browser can make an AJAX call to the term browser, parse the returned JSON array and display NCI Definition(s) in their page.

The methodology is based on the mapping between NCI and MDR atoms through NCI Metathesaurus.

 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>
