Pinned topic Remote QNA

‏2013-11-01T00:33:57Z |

I and some friends have been working on a remote relevance capability, so I'm sharing a screenshots of the work in progress with you.

So far we have a proof of concept working, but not all features are implemented (encryption and authentication).

A few key features that I'm aiming for, or have already included: 

  • no ports listening on the client (endpoints that will answer the relevance questions), connections are client initiated
  • a server component provides both the web ui for operators and connection point for endpoints
  • intent is to provide both non-context (fast), inspector-context (slower) answers as well as the ability to specify a Fixlet to assess on the endpoints.
  • Operators will be able to launch from a dashboard (possibly even in the dashboard)
  • Operator will initiate a fixlet action to the targets who will be given a key (room token) to connect to the remote QNA session create by the operator.
  • operator may reconnect to a session and recall commands
  • logging of all commands and to which endpoints they were sent
  • operator (user/pass) and endpoint (token) authentication
  • encryption of questions and responses
  • Multi-line input

    Garreth,

    This looks great!  Are you willing to share the proof of concept?

    Very impressive, and very helpful. I'd love to have this ability.

    I am only working on this in my very limited spare time.  My colleague has also not had too much time to focus on this lately, however we hope to have a beta ready shortly.


    The UI has been re-worked and simplified and several bugs have been fixed (plenty remain !) but the code had basic functions, multi-line relevance editing and indenting (Jeff, you're welcome !). 

    The security work is mostly complete, and authentication is done either locally, or against an IEM server (you still need to defined the user locally, but no password).  Some small amount of work to do on SSL.

     

    Along with the screenshots you can find a VERY brief video:

    very cool, something i've wanted for years.  I'd be willing to participate in the beta if you're looking for volunteers....

    Hi Garreth,

    Long time no see and how do you do?
    It seems wonderful and I'm absolutely interested in it! Can you please send me the latest one personally?

    Thanks,
    Toshiki

    I responded on the other thread as well, but I have a much crappier version of that at https://relevance.io and https://github.com/briangreenery/relevance.io.  We should join forces.

    I look forward to being able to test this at some point in the near future.  It's something I've been wanting to be able to do for a long time.

    Brian, interesting we both went with a node approach.  I like your client eval and may borrow some ideas there for prod..its just a little cleaner than what I've got.

    First access to the tool was provided sometime yesterday.  There are 20 people that have asked for an invite via http://iemremoteqna.x10.bz to the 'beta' (early access, testing, whatever you want to call it) - mostly IBMers !

    I've now finished transition from IBM to my new employer and received approval to continue work on this project.  Not sure how much time I'll have to spend, so I'm making the beta group completely open:

    The google group is now public: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/iem-remote-qna

    The 1.4 code can be accessed from: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/iem-remote-qna/7F16oPdWnh8
