This project contains documents of eInfraCentral platform, developed in the context of eInfracentral EU project. This platform is used for building and synchronizing electronic service catalogues from research infrastructures. It can be used by any research organization and research Infrastructure to publish, maintain a catalogue of services and offer added value functionality on top of service offerings.
eInfracentral technology has been used for building the eInfraCentral catalogue (https://www.einfracentral.eu), the Catalogue of the European Open Science Cloud Portal (https://catalogue.eosc-portal.eu), the catalogue of services of OpenAire infrastructure (http://catalogue.openaire.eu) and the catalogue of services of Research Infrastructres (http://www.catris.eu).
The docs describe:
- The service model, called Service Description Template
- The Specifications and Architecture Design of eInfraCentral Platform
- The APIs documentation v1.0, v2.0, an overview of the methods of APIv2.0 and a guide on how Service providers can use it.
