User-centric Modifications

NRAO User Database Modification Request 1 (T3 2009)



1. Introduction

If an account is disabled this is not indicated in the user's XML, so the apps we have authenticating against OpenSky have no way to tell.

2. Background

3. Requirements

  1. Implement userByGlobalId query servlet search.
  2. Revive fields Last Login, Updated On and Updated By. While not having these won't kill us, they used to work and they are very useful.
  3. Revive Account Status field. This one will take some group talk as to what we want: we need to bang out a list of statuses (like Active, Disabled, Deceased and so on) and then get OpenSky to give us a means to set them and return the proper status in the user's XML.

I found a sequence of events that will mess up the XML returned by
the query servlet:

1) start out with my account with 1 postal address and 1 affiliation,
the XML returned for me looks like this:

<nrao:postal-addresses>
<nrao:default-postal-address>
<nrao:address-type>Shipping</nrao:address-type>
<nrao:streetline>1003 Lopezville Rd</nrao:streetline>
<nrao:city>Socorro</nrao:city>
<nrao:state>New Mexico</nrao:state>
<nrao:country>United States</nrao:country>
<nrao:postal-code>87801</nrao:postal-code>
</nrao:default-postal-address>
</nrao:postal-addresses>

2) add a second (non default) affiliation (mpifr in this example)
3) agree to have it set mpifr as my work postal address
4) now my XML looks like this:

<nrao:postal-addresses>
<nrao:additional-postal-address>
<nrao:address-type>Shipping</nrao:address-type>
<nrao:streetline>1003 Lopezville Rd</nrao:streetline>
<nrao:city>Socorro</nrao:city>
<nrao:state>New Mexico</nrao:state>
<nrao:country>United States</nrao:country>
<nrao:postal-code>87801</nrao:postal-code>
</nrao:additional-postal-address>
<nrao:additional-postal-address>
<nrao:address-type>Office</nrao:address-type>
<nrao:address-type>Mail</nrao:address-type>
<nrao:address-type>Shipping</nrao:address-type>
<nrao:streetline>Auf dem H?gel 69</nrao:streetline>
<nrao:city>Bonn</nrao:city>
<nrao:country>Germany</nrao:country>
<nrao:postal-code>D-53121</nrao:postal-code>
</nrao:additional-postal-address>
</nrao:postal-addresses>

This is wrong, the default address has to appear before any additional
addresses.

4. Design

Technical lead should provide a brief description of how this will be implemented in the code.

5. Deployment Checklist

Documentation? Systems/hardware/networking things needed for deployment?

6. Test Plan

6.1 Internal Testing

6.2 Sponsor Testing

6.3 Integration/Regression Tests
