Session objectives

  • Overview of what configuration entails
  • The goal of the workshop is not to discuss specific implementation issues, but rather:
    • Scope and boundaries of the configuration tools
    • Business assumptions underlying the tools
  • Elicit feedback from the audience
  • Clarification on the Rice-Kuali Student relationship
what needs to be configured
What needs to be configured?

What needs to be configured?

  • Configuring data (codes, internationalization, attributes)
  • Configuring searches
  • Defining rules
  • Configuring processes
  • Configuring security
what are the tools to do the configuration
What are the tools to do the configuration
  • What are the application components that enable configuration? Solutions for Kuali Student:
    • Search framework (tbd)
    • Dictionary services (tbd)
    • Workflow (KEW)
    • Authorization (KIM)
    • Rules management (BRMS under development)
searching assumptions
Searching: assumptions

Service layer assumptions

  • All objects will need to be searched for in some way
  • Each type of object  will need it's own way of searching it (criteria specific to that object)
  • There will be a need to combine information (join) that is managed by different services
  • We can't assume the persistence mechanism for the objects (they won't all be in the same database)

UX layer assumptions

  • Having a common way to do a search is less confusing and easier to learn
  • Maybe there is a “simple search” and an “advanced search”
searching scope and boundaries
Searching: scope and boundaries

The search framework is not a data warehouse. Where do we draw the line between searching operational data and reporting from a data warehouse?

  • Operational data example:Students in Applied Science who won the Planck award last semester
  • Reporting example:What is the distribution of the Planck award across faculties over the last five years
dictionary scope and boundaries
Dictionary: scope and boundaries

A collection of information about data fields

  • Code tables (enumerations). Eg country/state codes
  • Data validation (length, types, regex)
  • Configurable attributes
  • Labels (screen names for data fields)
dictionary assumptions questions
Dictionary: assumptions/questions

Question:

  • Should there be one set of dictionary services for the entire service stack

-OR-

  • Should each service maintain its own dictionary?

Question:

  • Should there be a separate UI dictionary for:
  • Labels and text
  • Error messages
  • Internationalization
identity management scope and boundaries
Identity management: scope and boundaries

Scope of Kuali Identity Management (KIM)

  • Person identity information
  • Authentication
  • Authorization
    • Permissions
    • Roles
brms scope and boundaries
BRMS: scope and boundaries

Any business rule. Here is one set of definitions from Ross:

  • Rejector (or constraint) E.g.
    • Pre-requisite, co-requisite rules
    • Degree audit rules
  • Producer (calculation or computation) E.g.
    • Fee calculation rules
    • GPA calculation rules
  • Projector – stimulus/response rule. E.g.
    • Triggering an admissions evaluation based on a rule about the completeness of data

configuring processes workflow
Configuring processes: workflow
  • Workflow: managing processes that involve human interaction
  • Key components (of KEW):
    • Action lists (what I need to do next)
    • Routing (who needs to do what next)
    • Documents (a container for any object that needs to be worked on)
security scope and boundaries
Security: scope and boundaries
  • Scope of Kuali Identity Management (KIM)
    • Person identity information
    • Authentication
    • Authorization
