What is the Platform Product Registry
The Platform Product Registry is a self-serve online tool that allows you to request space for new products in the B.C. government’s public cloud landing zones. Currently, you can only provision space in AWS. We will add support for Azure and GCP in the near future.
Through the registry, you can:
- Request space in the Public cloud
- Update information for the owner and technical lead of an existing project
- Set up a monthly budget for your project. You’ll get alerts when your monthly spending gets close to your budget
- Delete your workspace in Public cloud
The Platform Product Registry allows you to easily submit provisioning requests.
All you need is:
- Fulfill the onboarding prerequisites
- Have a valid IDIR account, which you’ll use to access the registry
- Provide an application name and description without using acronyms
- Share contact details and IDIR information for the product owner and up to 2 technical leads
- Provide an estimate for your project’s projected monthly budget
Who can use it
In general, only product owners who are permanent government employees can submit provisioning requests through the Platform Product Registry.
If the product owner for your new application hasn’t worked in the B.C. Government Public Cloud before, they must schedule an onboarding meeting with the platform director. This must be completed before a product provisioning request can be submitted. Review our Memorandum of Understanding prior to the meeting.
Once a product is provisioned, your team’s product owner and technical leads listed in the provisioning request form will have:
- Administrative access to the workspaces in AWS
- Edit access to the product records in the registry
When to use it
You can use the Product Registry to request AWS Cloud environment accounts.
Once we review and approve your request, we’ll set up your product workspace in AWS. This workspace is your dedicated area in AWS for building your application.
Normally, the review and approval process takes about 24 hours during regular business hours. However, it may take longer if your team hasn’t completed the onboarding process or has not met all the requirements to use the platform.
Your product workspaces in AWS get names automatically. They take the form of
<generated alphanumeric string>-<environment>, for example,
a01ed4-test, and so on. We call these names a project license plate.
