Farthest Gate have completed the work to implement VH in front of CI in the test environment and we’ve been carrying out some functional testing. So far, so good – it’s performing as we’d expect (our dummy data is passing and failing where we want it to…see below) and we remain painfully optimistic that we can get it into live by the end of next week…but this is dependent on Farthest Gate deploying to the bridge environment first in the next day or so.
However, Matt has been able to snatch some minutes around the edge of other work to connect our API with ClearCore and we’ve hit some blockers with security certificates. We think this will need a bit of infrastructure support to resolve (as well as time from Matt that we can’t yet guarantee). This is on our ‘must solve’ list – if we can’t resolve it won’t be possible to go live next week.
Thanks are due to Rasit and Phil who have become involved to look at the full CMR for Liberator given the changes we’re making. In effect they’re checking that the changes don’t break anything, that it’s safe to deploy to live and they have sight of all the documentation in case any issues arise.
In the meantime, InfoShare have completed installation of ClearCore 5 in our Live environment. Tom C is now building an internal LLPG gazetteer and changing the VH project configuration so that is ready to load data into the Hub. Steve F has Housing Benefit data and has almost finished automating this as daily update delta files from Council Tax and Housing Bens into the ClearCore data hub.
We’re about to hit holiday season and we’re reaching crunch point for this work – we’re 80% of the way through this work but it will require some focused support from the whole project team to get it over the line.
