Ministry of Justice Cloud Platform

About this repository

This is the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) Cloud Platform team's repository for public facing documentation, feature work, enhancements, and issues.

The Cloud Platform team utilises GitHub issues to manage their work, and a team ZenHub board to surface GitHub issues into a product management board.

It's best to search our GitHub issues before adding new issues in an effort to reduce duplicates and encourage activity through existing conversations.

Link checker

This repository has a GitHub action that checks all links in *.md files and creates a GitHub issue if the link returns a non-200 status code. If you have a link that doesn't resolve through the public internet (e.g., localhost, or other internal links), please update the .ignore-links file including the fully-qualified domain name (FQDN).

Other Cloud Platform repositories

We have a series of repositories for our work. We have adopted the naming convention of naming each repository starting with cloud-platform-*. Where some repositories have similar purposes, we try to follow a common prefix (e.g. cloud-platform-terraform-* for Terraform modules). We also name things so that users can understand what a repository does through its name.
