COCI Maintainence Releases

TypeCategoryDescriptionNotesTicket (internal)Release
MISMIS and COCI Interaction not processing Course and Program files

fix corrects CCN assignment, new PCNs being reflected in Datamart and sending the program course file from COCI to MIS. backend processes were also optimized for overall improvement.




MISControl Number found in datamart but not assigned to Course in COCIwe updated the way we process control numbers sent back from MIS to improve the pace and rate of successful CCN assignment in COCI. CCM-591.8.7

MISHistory tracking for MIS errors and Course StatusA new section was added to the course history page that specifically shows the MIS history. Every time we send a course to MIS and an error message is returned, this table will populate with the error code and the date received. these tables are populated with error data going back to the launch of the new COCI so all MIS errors are displayed since go live, even if your course is active today. CCM-1301.8.8

MISApproved courses not assigned a ccn after 24 hoursthe updated processing put in place with CCM-59 has resolved this issue; Approved courses that dont have a CCN after a business day cycle will have its associated error message noted in the MIS Tab and can be unlocked for correction. CCM-1891.8.8
BugMIS/Control NumbersPCNs generated in COCI not displaying in DatamartMIS updated collection point for nightly file; PCNs now showing in Datmart as expectedCCM-1031.8.3

Courses still showing on MIS tab after error correctionWe updated the display settings for the MIS tab and now courses that have been corrected and resubmitted will drop off the page so users can more easily (hopefully) track which courses have been addressed and which still need to be corrected. CCM-128`1.8.9
StoryMISProgram issue/create date not rendering in MIS Master program file and/or is rendering a different date than was previously visibleAs part of correcting CCM-103 the master programs file is now being sent to MIS nightly. The first update sent to MIS did not contain issue/create dates for a large percentage of legacy programs as this data was missing in the legacy dataset received. Where MIS had issue/create dates for programs that COCI did not, that date was rendered blank in MIS. Where MIS had a different date than COCI, the date in the COCI file was written over the MIS date. A script was run in COCI to add the issue/create date MIS had for all programs as if July 1 to the proposal create date field in COCI. The next time the nightly file is run and imported, the dates previkously displayed in the MIS master priogram file will again be displayed in datamart and the proposal create date field in COCI will be populated for legacy programsCCM-1341.8.5
BugControl NumbersCourses sitting in approved status with no explanation and no CCNusers will see a new tab labeled "MIS" next time they log in. This tab will be blank unless COCI receives an error message back from MIS when attempting to get a CCN assigned. The NEW MIS TAB will display the name of the course and a link to view the error details. The specific MIS miss-match is recorded and the user is taken to the edit course screen to correct and resubmitCCM-681.8.3
BugControl NumbersCCNs not being assigned and new PCNs not reflected in datamartUpdates applied to the nightly interaction resolved the backlog of CCNs needing to be assignedCCM-511.8.1

DocumentsDocuments fail to upload and no explanation is providedThe file size limitation was increased to support graphic or data rich attachments. CC-19121.8.9
StoryDocumentsNo way to back out accidental "Add Document" clickA new, red "remove document" button was introduced to support cases where either the wrong document was uploaded or if the user accidentally selects the "Add another document" button. This enhancement is intended to reduce the number of validation and error messages displayed at the time of submit, particularly for active courses and programs CCM-1121.8.4

DocumentsProgram Award and Program Goal not listed correctly on Approval LettersProgram goal now mapped to program goal field, same for program award. The display of program award name and the program goal name have been updated as well to reflect the exact same display as in COCI.




DocumentsCreate tool to generate approval letters on demandSite Admin feature added to generate PDF, official approval letter directly from within edit screens. SA can now generate letters missing from programs or courses and can render letters for legacy versions of the program or course. CC-19141.8.9
BugDocumentsSelecting "Add Another Document" is pre-populating title and document type when selected after at least one document is addedsupporting documents behavior updated to have document type and title render blank when user is attempting to add any addtl documents after the first one is addedCCM-1331.8.4

DocumentsDocument fails to attach for no visible reasonwe think this was connected to the file size limitation we had on attachments. CORs or narratives with heavy formatting, graphics, tables and charts tend to be a lot larger than word heavy documents or pdfs. the file size for an individual file upload is now 5MBCCM-1921.8.9

WorkflowWhoops when trying to view or edit some programsThere are a few ADT programs that are quite large! The size of these programs are so great that it was taking longer than configured for the program to even load enough to display in View mode. We've cleaned up some of the processes with viewing and managing large proposals and also set the timeout threshold to a slightly longer window. CCM-2081.8.9

Courses assigned Revision status for reasons other than CCCCO determination Courses were being assigned "Revision" by the system when the course failed during MIS validation. This status routing was removed; courses will now only be assigned revision if done so by the CCCCO reviewer.CC-19081.8.9
StoryWorkflowSearch parameters added to the review queues not retaining when navigating away from pageCCCCO reviewers can input text into the search text box and navigate into an individual record or to a different page and return to the queue with the original search parameters still applied. CCM-331.8.3

Courses assigned revision when they shouldnt beAs part of the MIS process update done with CCM-59, we also changed the logic for the status assigned courses when an MIS error is flagged. Courses will now only be assigned revision status if the CCCCO reviewer does not approve the submission. There is no other use case left in the system that should result in a course going to revision. CCM-471.8.9

WorkflowWhoops ErrorAttempting to delete a document was resulting in a whoops error in some conditions.CCM-1861.8.7

StoryWorkflowWhoops ErrorThe units calculations in courses were calculating and returning whoops error messages to users in cases where the user is associated with miltiple colleges and does not have a college selected when entering data into the hours fields.

StoryWorkflowWhoops Errorusers were getting a whoops error on submit if the attempted submit is the second or greater attempt made in a single session and the user did not reattach any documents originally attached prior to the first submit. messaging to the user has been added to highlght the need to reattach supporting documents if the first submit did not result in a success message. CCM-1201.8.5
StoryWorkflowWhoops Errorsystem timing out when attempting to load legacy documents and presenting the user with a fatal error and a whoops redirect. parameters for documents to load have been expanded and updated messaging will be displayed to the user explaining the lag with documents loading/being displatyed, this speficically addresses legacy documents and coursesCCM-171.8.5
BugWorkflowWhoops Errordata picker for the two approval dates in courses and programs was rendering a fatal error on the back end when documents are attached. data picker has been updatrd and tested in chrome and safari and documnets that fail to load are resulting now in a red error message rather than a whoopd redirect. CCM-1141.8.5
StoryWorkflowWhoops Errorupdate made to expand database search for legacy documents when the user selects "view" on the edit or detail pages. if the system still cant locate the document after the expanded search, better on screen messaging should help explain the next steps to take to view the document requested. 



StoryWorkflowHitting the enter/return key when editing a course or program submits the course or program The keyboard shortcut has been updated to result only in an attempted submit when the user has tabbed to the submit button. Hitting enter/return in any other field wont drive proposal behavior with this change.CCM-1421.8.5
