M5.20 - Metadata repository design plan

In order to hold the specifications for tasks to be submitted to external computing services we will design a metadata repository to be integrated with Scratchpad instances. This repository will hold job specifications, and the history of results. It will be exposed to the Scratchpad user via the enhanced user interface developed in Task 5.8.


Milestone completed

The metadata repository is in place as an array of replicated MongoDB databases. This is an integrated part of the OBOE platform and provides complete metadata capture for job history and retrieval.
