 Mayo/JasonWe have run into multiple issues where the performance on the DEV tier has be a problem due to Mayo not being able to replicate the slow points due to the drastic difference in DEV resources.  We discuss this with the systems team and they requested us to put in a DRT ticket that provides the specs to match the Mayo DEV server.08/30/13 7/16/2014A new development server has been procured and is currently being setup.  This AI will be closed.

LexEVS 6.3

Continued to support LexEVS OWL2 API requirement validation.

Report WriterLooking at what is needed to complete the deployment on DEV.  It appears to be completed and just waiting for the database from the old deployment moved to the Shady Grove deployment.

Term Browser 

Requested additional memory on the Stage tier to match what is currently on DEV and QA.  The additional memory has helped with completing AppScans.

Identified methods for instantiating IE, Chrome, and Firefox web drivers in a selenium test run.

Reviewed appscan report generated by the JIRA item [SECURITYTEAM-480]. There is one high vulnerability item left related to cross-site scripting. The term browser was able to detect the scripting and responded by displaying a message indicating an invalid request parameter was identified. Apparently, the appscan team feels that echoing invalid parameter value is not necessary.

Made further modification to the backend code to address the above cross-site scripting vulnerability. A new scan request is submitted subsequently (refer to SECURITYTEAM-495]).

Created a new tag for QA (2015-03-18.1-v2.6).

Responded to the QA team inquiries regarding value set search, hierarchies, view in hierarchy, visualization widgets, etc.

Responded to an inquiry from the user group regarding property qualifiers in a new SNOMED load on DataQA.

The QA team had executed the automated regression tests against the latest tag and they had passed before submitting the AppScan requests. Tin said he will complete the testing and get started on the report to promote to Stage by the time the Scan completes.

 Currently working on getting the 2.6 release working on the DEV data tier.

Reviewing and prioritizing trackers for possible inclusion in the 2.7 release.

 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>
