Q. Where can I find the Data Custodian directory (xml)?

Q. Where can I find the Data Custodian directory (xml)?

A. The data custodian directory does not yet exist. When ready it will be located on the greenbuttondata.ca web site (actual URL to be determined). However, as the Ontario based Green Button pilots are just in the beginning stages, the directory likely won't be ready, or required for a few months yet.

    How then can I use Test Lab? To test use case 1 I need to register my app with Data Custodian. If no Data Custodians are available how I am suppose to do that?

    @yshteinmn Yes there is a functioning Data Custodian available in the Test Lab for you to work with, which implements all of the interfaces specified in the Reference Architecture document and the. You can register your application with this Data Custodian using the interface provided in the portal.

    I am developing mobile app. Given that data custodian directory will not be ready for a few month can you please explain what is the expected functionality of the app provided by Eastern Time on January 7, 2014 ?
    Should it work with test lab only ?
    What steps can be done in test lab portal and what should be done in the app. For example when I log into my app can I assume that I have already passed my app registration and have client id and secret or it should be done from mobile device?
    Can I assume that customer already authorized an access of the app and I have access token or it should be done from mobile device?

    1. Yes, as of January 7, 2014 the primary expectation for your application is that it work with the Data Custodian in the Test Lab.

    2. For a mobile app you can use the Third Party App in the Test Lab to acquire the client_id, client_secret, and access token (s) you will need for your mobile app to function and to demonstrate its capability. It should be noted that at present the Ontario Reference Architecture presumes that mobile application vendors will also have a portal infrastructure, which is necessary for the authorization process to work correctly i.e. to initially acquire an access token from a customer authorization and to subsequently manage and propagate token refreshes.

    3. You can assume that the Third Party App in the Test Lab provides your portal infrastructure for now, and as per #2 you have already acquired the access token using that tool.

    So, basically the contest is not about how to integrate with GreenButton infrastructure but how to display the data?

    Well no. However, this is a way to demonstrate and test your mobile application using the Green Button CMD API's synchronous data reads to start. The additional elements of the required authorization infrastructure can follow thereafter.
