Summary

The project will:
A) Extend the current ‘EGI’ and ‘Local’ data scoping logic to introduce multiple, non-exclusive scope tags to encourage other projects to host their data within a single GOCDB instance;
B) Provide a supporting GOCDB management interface to simplify daily operational/admin tasks.

With these developments, the functionality of GOCDB will be extended so that topology data from multiple projects can be more effectively managed using a single GOCDB instance. A management interface will help simplify and speed-up daily operational tasks, especially for new service administrators and will help reduce on-going operational costs for EGI. Non-exclusive scope tags will allow sites/services to be scoped with both project-specific tags (e.g. ‘UK_NES’) and with the wider ‘EGI’ scope tag without duplication of information. This is essential in helping to maintain the integrity of topology information across different target infrastructures.
