Business Applications Quarterly Planning

This page details the work we will do on our business applications and the LIR Portal in the coming quarter, how you can give your input on that work and our reaction to that input.

We have three objectives in publishing our quarterly planning:

  1. We want to be transparent about the work we are doing
  2. We want your input on that work and our planning, and we want to document that input, and let you know if and when we can add your suggestions to our planning
  3. We want an open dialogue with members and community on developments around our applications and the LIR Portal

We launched this initiative in Q4 2021, and we are open to improving what we publish here and how we do that. So let us know if there are ways we can better present our plans.

We will update this page as our activities progress and continue to share updates on RIPE Labs, on the RIPE NCC Membership Discussion and RIPE NCC Services Working Group (WG) mailing lists, and at RIPE Meetings and other events.

Q3 2022 Plans

Last Updated: 29 June 2022

Item Activity Description Status
1 Monitoring registry accuracy

We are proactively monitoring changes in the business structure of our members by leveraging on external data sources (i.e. Altares Dun & Bradstreet).

In progress

Work continues from Q4 2021.

2 Modernisation of RIPE NCC Access

RIPE NCC Access (SSO) is a combination of a third-party identity provider and an application that we have developed in-house. We have several issues with the current solution, so we want to review the architecture and decide on what changes we can make in the future.

So far, we have identified that replacing core components of the SSO is a very complex project. We are busy with vendor selection to replace our current Identity Management product (the core of SSO), creating proofs of concept (POCs) to decide on future architecture and preparing our current system for the new solution.

In Q3, we will finalise on vendor and architecture, and start with the implementation.

In progress

Work continues from Q1 2022.

Community Input on Planning

We want the community to contribute to our plans and suggest additional work items. Please share your comments with us or post them on the RIPE NCC Membership Discussion or RIPE NCC Services WG mailing lists. And we'll be monitoring all the other channels where people talk about these services.

We will be adding your feedback on this page as we progress with our plans.

Reference Input RIPE NCC Reaction
 BA-2021-#01 Request to add a "view only" user to the LIR Portal that would allow the defined user to see all resources of the specific LIR (including RPKI) but not be able to modify anything.

We will investigate possibilities here and add a reaction when ready. As shared on the mailing list, please share your feedback with us on what you would like to see on the LIR Portal.

We first recorded this request in Q4 2021.

 BA-2022-#01 Request on the mailing list to automatically add the primary LIR contact as CC: in all tickets, or to provide the ability to add additional CC:’s via the LIR Portal after the ticket has been created.

We will investigate possibilities here and add a reaction when ready.

We first recorded this request in Q2 2022.

 BA-2022-#02 Request on the mailing list to have the ability to trim the CC: list of a given ticket (for example to remove ticketing systems), or the ability to add a custom tag to the email Subject: line to facilitate better ticket tracking.

We will investigate possibilities here and add a reaction when ready.

We first recorded this request in Q2 2022.

BA-2022-#03 Request to introduce a 'Read Only' account level in the LIR Portal.

We will investigate creating an additional user profile in the LIR Portal with more restricted rights.
