DIFM Ag Portal Now Integrated with Oracle IDCS!

2023 - 02 -21 

The DIFM Ag Research Portal is now interfaced to the Oracle Cloud Identity Services.  (IDCS)  Integration allows scientists to spin up data tools in the cloud from the comfort of the end-user application.   It also allows Group Roles and Access rights to data through a centralized management platform.   The March IT Report will include a detailed video of the application development in progress.

Integration with Oracle IDCS Complete!

The DIFM Ag Research Portal and Farmers Portal is now integrated with Oracle IDCS and there is self-registration for farmers and research scientists.   Both applications remain under development but the underlying scaffolding is built and being tested.

Ag Research Portal:  Is an end-user application under development designed for PI's and Stakeholders to access, review, edit migrated data residing in DIFM's Autonomous Data Warehouse in the Oracle Cloud.  

Farm Portal: Is an end-user application allowing farmers to register for OFPE Trials, upload necessary data for implementing those trials.  

Integrating user registration with IDCS and managing application & data access with IDCS satisfies essential requirements of Phase I of the software development plan.
