  • Why does FLOE needs a preferences server?  What purposes?
    • Have a common way for multiple projects to store and retrieve preferences
    • Share the same preferences among different projects.  A kind of "portable preferences".
  • What is the actual structure of the preferences themselves?
  • What database to use?
    • GPII used CouchDB but was moving away
  • OAuth2 machinery is integrated with the Flow Manager
  • OAuth2 also has dependencies on the database
    • of course it does, since the credential and other authorization information is in the database
    • but, the database is CouchDB in GPII, so there is a dependency on couchdb access by the authorization service
    • encapsulated in gpii-db-opertions.
  • Keys and PrefsSafes Data Model
    • There are two data models in the main documentation, the current one and a future one
    • Notes on the current one are given in the section "Database" below.
    • The "future one" is based on Steve Githens support of the PPT, and contains two new structures that connect to the current data model
    • Which model should FLOE support?
    • Or, do we want to support a PPT-like interface?Keys and PrefsSafes Data Model
