There is a new data model in the dataModel.Weather subject, SeaConditions
SeaConditions. This entity contains a harmonized geographic description of sea conditions
There is a new service for users, which is the ability to generate an example payload compliant with a specific data model in key values format. Previously it was available the normalized format.
Options are located in the main menu (Generate NGSI examples)
We have drafted the publication process for new data models and for updates.
It’s the first page of the contribution manual and every box (not in this image) has links to the tools/resources to be used.
Hopefully, it will be more straightforward to be understood.
In the right column of the front page, there is a new feature for look for data models
once type ‘light’ it looks like in the right
Every entry is an hyperlink
The list of data models has been completely changed.
Step 1: write part of the name of data model or repository
Step 2: The table filter the options
Step 3: Click on the name and it takes you directly to the github location you need.
In order to reduce the work for the contributors of the new data models, there is a new section on the contribution manual title ‘don’t do these’ with recommendations for the most common poor practices in the contribution process.
Although all contributions are welcomed it will save everybody’s time by reading this section once.
Additionally, the section can be improved so you can submit your recommendations/lessons learned here.
There is a new option in the main menu Data Models -> Contribution Checklist
It is strongly recommended to pass every element before submitting your new data model.
See below the checklist
Now the README file of every data model includes a link to the generator of NGSI-LD payloads compliant with the data model.
As you can see in the image below there is a new section “Dynamic examples generation”
There the sentence “Link to the Generator of NGSI-LD payloads compliant with this data model. Refresh for new values”. By clicking the Generator link an example of payload appears on the web page. Refreshing (F5) generates new payloads.
Now all data models have an interactive specification. (As long as they have examples)
This is the first step to deeper interactive services for every data model contributed.
See the example for weatherForecast.
