Weekly blog post 5

What did you do this week?

I have begun implementing the configuration of the MSS collaboration server. This includes setting up the server environment, ensuring its proper functionality, and making necessary adjustments to meet project requirements. Currently, I am actively working on this task.

What is coming up next?

I have planned to allocate my time to incorporate authentication into the QT client application. My objective is to improve the login functionality by integrating a browser element for the authentication procedure. Once the server verifies the authentication successfully, the client application will be granted a unique token, which will enable secure communication.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

i am getting stuck with writing test cases for the authentication SP and IDP. These test cases are running correctly on my local environment. When I tried to push them to GitHub, I encountered some failures because the server was not starting because of issue with file path in docker container. To resolve this issue, I believe I need to refer to the previously built codebase and utilize GitHub's Automated tests. I plan to address this matter later in the project, as outlined in the project proposal.
