Environments and Servers they run on
This page gives an overview of the Shibboleth Metadata Administration service (Metadata App),
describing its current status, where and how it's developed and deployed, and who is responsible
for maintaining it.

## Service Description
Application repositories
- [Web Application](https://gitlab.developers.cam.ac.uk/uis/devops/raven/shibboleth-metadata)
This service allows web site administrators in the University to register web sites so that they
work with the shibboleth provided by the [Raven SAML2 service](../raven-shibboleth/) and
subsequently to manage those registrations. This is achieved by uploading 'SAML Metadata'
describing those sites.
## Service Status
| Category | Language | Framework |
| -------- | -------- | --------- |
| Server | Python 3.7 | Django 2.1 |
| Client | Javascript | jQuery 1.11.1 <br> d3js 5.9.2 <br> c3js 0.6.14 |
The Metadata App is currently live.
**Terraform** for GCP project and SQL instance creation. **Ansible** for docker
swarm configuration.
## Contact
Deployment repository
- [USVC Deployment](https://gitlab.developers.cam.ac.uk/uis/devops/usvc-deploy)
Technical queries and support should be directed to servicedesk@uis.cam.ac.uk and will be picked up
by a member of the team working on the service. To ensure that you receive a response, always
direct requests to servicedesk@uis.cam.ac.uk rather than reaching out to team members directly.

All environments share access to a set of secrets stored in the [meta-project Secret Manager](https://console.cloud.google.com/security/secret-manager?project=shib-metadata-meta-0f6f7257).
## Source code
The source code for the Metadata App is spread over the following repositories:
| Repository | Description
| ----------- | ------------------ |
| [Application Server](https://gitlab.developers.cam.ac.uk/uis/devops/raven/shibboleth-metadata) | The source code for the main application server |

## Technologies used
The following gives an overview of the technologies the Metadata App is built on.
| Category | Language | Framework(s) |
| -------- | -------- | ------------ |
| Web Application | Python 3.8 | Django 2.2 |
| Database | PostgreSQL 11 | n/a |
## Operational documentation
The following gives an overview of how the Metadata App is deployed and maintained.
### How and where the Metadata App is deployed
The database for metadata is a PostgreSQL database hosted by GCP Cloud SQL. The main web
application is a classic Django application (not DRF), hosted by GCP Cloud Run.
The Metadata App infrastructure is deployed using Terraform, with releases
of the main application application deployed by the GitLab CD pipelines associated with the
[infrastructure deployment repository](https://gitlab.developers.cam.ac.uk/uis/devops/raven/shibboleth-metadata-deployment).
### Deploying a new release
The `README.md` files in each of the source code repositories explain how to deploy the
Metadata App.
### Monitoring
The same method of monitoring the app is with Cloud Logs
- [production](https://console.cloud.google.com/logs?project=shib-metadata-prod-8adc3a8f)
- [staging](https://console.cloud.google.com/logs?project=shib-metadata-test-3d1b697a)
- [development](https://console.cloud.google.com/logs?project=shib-metadata-devel-d10d66c7)
### Debugging
For debugging the deployed app see "Monitoring" above. For debugging locally the
[application `README.md`](https://gitlab.developers.cam.ac.uk/uis/devops/raven/shibboleth-metadata)
describes how the containerised app can be run.
