There should be no assumption of a commitment to deliver these features on specific dates or in the order given.

Disclaimer:

  • This section has been last updated in January 2019. Please take into account its content could be obsolete.
  • Note we develop this software in Agile way, so development plan is continuously under review. Thus, this roadmap has to be understood as rough plan of features to be done along time which is fully valid only at the time of writing it. This roadmap has not be understood as a commitment on features and/or dates.
  • Some of the roadmap items may be implemented by external community developers, out of the scope of GEi owners. Thus, the moment in which these features will be finalized cannot be assured.

Short term

The following list of features are planned to be addressed in the short term, and incorporated in the next release:

  • Initial NGSIv2 support imported from the Ficodes repository.

  • Simplify rule creation by not requiring manually adding rule name inside the EPL code.

  • Support for dealing with several Context Brokers from the same Perseo instance. To do so, update actions will support to configure target context broker, if not provided such configuration, the default context broker will be used.

  • Improve template processing, extending it to StructuredValue/JSON attributes.

  • Description API in OpenAPIv3

Medium term

The following list of features are planned to be addressed in the medium term, typically within the subsequent release(s) generated in the next 9 months after next planned release:

  • Include a new endpoint for manage the Context Broker subscriptions.

  • Support more Context Broker actions (create, append, appendStrict, update, delete, replace, etc) and analyse other possible operations: batch operations, operations over subscriptions, operations over registrations.

Long term

The following list of features are proposals regarding the longer-term evolution of the product even though development of these features has not yet been scheduled for a release in the near future. Please feel free to contact us if you wish to get involved in the implementation or influence the roadmap

  • Support for geospatial analysis (geo-fencing, point-based actions, movement-based actions)

  • Enhanced multi-tenancy support. Leverage different "Fiware-Service" and "Fiware-ServicePath" in rules

  • Rule templates (i.e. having a rule template that can be instantiated to create particular instances of the rule). The idea is be able to create complex rules only providing some parameters.
