Just a quick reminder about two upcoming changes in early August with the MiDataHub environment.
The EdFi version 3.1 upgrade contains a number of improvements, most of which provide greater flexibility with how district data is handled, including some data elements that were not previously exchanged, and eliminates areas that in the past were identified as being problematic.
Along with the update to Ed-Fi 3.1, the MiDataHub team is working to consolidate from 5 data hub hosting locations to a single data hub located at Oakland Schools. As mentioned in previous newsletters the 5 hub system has served us well. Consolidating MiDataHub to Oakland Schools allows us to continue to host your data at the ISD level and will free up resources so we can continue to take MiDataHub further to meet district needs. The consolidation is scheduled to occur the week of August 3rd but could possibly begin as early as July 31.
We created a small list of what impact this cut-over will have during the week of August 3rd:
- All access to the MiDataHub Cockpit for users will be shut off
- All integrations will be deactivated, this includes but is not limited to the examples below:
- UIC Services
- 3rd Party integrations
- Inbound/Outbound integrations
- Access to Dashboards will be unavailable
- SSO federation services will remain active
Upon completion of the work, all services will be restored on the new, upgraded and consolidated MiDataHub infrastructure!
