Virtual Services Catalog

Idea created by Josh_Hendrick Employee on Mar 20, 2015

    Enterprise customers typically need a virtual services catalog to document meta data about services.  This typically takes the form of an excel file, and ad hoc off the shelf product, or custom web based interface.  It would be nice to provide the capability for users to catalog services in a centralized location (perhaps the enterprise dashboard) which would be viewable through the web interface or exportable into excel format.  We could even put some level of auto-discovery about what services exist by seeing what is deployed across all enterprise wide VSE's.


    Here are some fields that would be helpful to track:


    Mandatory Fields

    Program Name / Business Unit



    Service Name

    Transport Protocol

    Data Protocol

    Link to Source Control Location


    Nice to Have Fields

    Service Description

    Number of Operations

    List of Operations

    Environment Used (i.e Dev, SIT, UAT, Performance)


    Security Requirements (SSL, WS-Security, Encryption, etc)
