FinBIF system update on Monday 28.8. 6:00-8:00

Published 24.8.2017 - 9:00. — Esko Piirainen Technical news

We are updating several FinBIF systems on Monday morning. This will cause a maintenance break. We will inform if the break will be longer than expected.

The update effects the following systems:

Laji.fi portal

Kotka collection management

FinBIF data warehouse

Api.laji.fi /warehouse api

and several Luomus systems, for example the ringing database.

After the update we begin to reload all FinBIF data warehouse data. This takes at least a week to complete. In the meantime, the warehouse will contain data in old and new formats, so certain new queries will not return correct results and showing results may be inlogical or partial.
