Description
Requested
09/08/2012
For APIS we still need to define
Mandatory items for NextKin and address
which data items are mandatory
input for US APIS.
and must be provided by the passenger before he/she can continue
with the check-in process.
10/08/2012
CC Verification by last 4 digits
Needs definition & integration in the process
14/08/2012
You want to have the scan
passport image process
independent from the APIS
process so that we could ignore
APD elements and always scan
the PP?
Needs clarification.
>> Yes, this will be independent.
e.g. passenger travelling to CMB
on UL does not need APIS but
needs passport image scanned
and stored. For passenger
travelling on KU to KWI may need
APIS and image stored. EK may
need APIS but no image storage.

General Application Options
The chapter describes the business processes and options supported by the check-in
application. Options not explicitly listed in the following tables are not provided through
the applications business process. Changes and enhancements to the descriptions
below need to be reviewed and will be defined through separate change requests.
Changed requests are not included in the commercial contract and therefore will be
charged separately.
Change requests are integrated in the MATERNA release cycle and shall follow a
defined build process. Change requests have to be defined and specified until an
agreed editorial deadline to get integrated into the envisaged product release.

•
The application will be a dnata-branded application showing the (secondary) logo
of the currently handled airline. The layout will be defined in the separate
document [DOCREF].
•
The application is executed as a single instance for all handled airlines. The
application determines the actual branding from the parameters provided by the
CUSS platform.
•
The application connects to the MACS DCS using a dedicated version of the
Generic Check-in Interface (GCI). The implementation of that GCI uses the XML
interface definitions from the document [DOCREF] provided by dnata.

General Check-in Process
The diagram below depicts the general flow through a passenger’s check-in process
starting with the language selection right after the activation by the CUSS platform.

Integrated Passenger Services
After successfully finalizing the APIS process for all passengers in a group the
application checks in all passengers on the MACS DCS behind the scene. - All
passengers in specified group then will have a pre-assigned seat.
The application also follows the concept of a central screen where passenger data is
summarized and displayed and from where a passenger (or group of passengers) can
optionally select changing their frequent traveler mileage account or their seat.
If configured passengers are allowed to print baggage tags before the application
prints all required boarding passes for the checked-in persons.
1.3.1
General Error handling
CUSS platform reported errors will be handled and displayed with an appropriate error
message (e.g. error popup). - Dependent on the error severity the application terminates and goes into UNAVAILABLE mode until it detects the absence of the error that
led to its non-availability.
In any case within the check-in process the application tries to finish the check-in
session as far as possible. E.g. the occurrence of a card- or passport reader error
during the printing process will not terminate the check-in process, but the application
prints the remaining documents and goes to UNAVAILABLE once the check-in
session has been finished.
If the application detects that the MACS system is not available for checking in passengers, the application immediately goes into UNAVAIABLE mode. – The actual
session in this case cannot be finished. After the application finds the MACS system
available it returns to the AVAILABLE mode, unless another error situation forces the
application to remain UNAVAILABLE.

Business Logic Server (Primary)
Status: Proposed - Phase: 1.0 - Last modified: 28.06.2012 15:45:06 - Type
The primary business logic server hosts and executes the CI applications business
logic and the GCI that builds the interface to the MACS DCS.
2.1.3
Business Logic Server (Backup)
Status: Proposed - Phase: 1.0 - Last modified: 28.06.2012 15:48:01 - Type
The backup business logic server hosts and executes the CI applications business
logic (BL) and the GCI that builds the interface to the MACS DCS.
In case the primary server fails for any reason this backup server takes over the
execution of the business logic. In case of a take over, the actual executed BLs are
not continued, but need to be reestablished by the passenger.
2.1.4
Database Server (mySQL/ORACLE)
Status: Proposed - Phase: 1.0 - Last modified: 21.08.2012 15:50:09 - Type
The database server holds the configuration for the check-in business logic as well as
for the graphical user interface (e.g. instruction texts) on the kiosk clients.
The configuration can be managed from the administration server using the IPS
AdminPortal.
2.1.5
Administration Server
Status: Proposed - Phase: 1.0 - Last modified: 28.06.2012 15:43:22 - Type
Is the access point for certified staff to do administrative work. The administration
server also moves the trace- and log files from the business logic sever to an attached
storage.
Administrative work is carried out using the IPS AdminPortal software.

A storage holds all the trace- and log files that are moved from the BL servers to it.
The IPS AdminPortal allows searching for certain logs and traces by providing search
criteria like passenger names or PNRs and the like.
2.1.7
Load Balancer
Status: Proposed - Phase: 1.0 - Last modified: 28.06.2012 15:57:34 - Type
A load balancer manages the IP addresses of the primary- and backup BL servers.
This way the kiosk clients need to be configured to access only one IP address.
If only two BL servers need to be managed the load balancer can also be
implemented through the simple provision of a virtual IP address. In this case real load
balancing doesn't take place, but the virtual IP address simply switches to the backup
server in case the primary server fails.
2.1.8
Kiosk Clients
Status: Proposed - Phase: 1.0 - Last modified: 28.06.2012 16:03:13 - Type

The resulting state charts are parsed by the business logic workflow engine, so that
changes in the documentation may directly affect applications functionality.

These options are partly accessible through the configuration management tool (but
with limited access rights), and are partly defined in configuration files that are part of
specific deployment modules (e.g. state charts).

Customization options
These are options that define the basic application behavior, such as
•
business logic work flow (state chart)
•

Application Timeouts
This description outlines the configuration and usage of the application timeouts for
the dnata check-in application (CI application). For every self service application it is
essential to implement and configure application timeouts in such a way that these
timeouts are easily to understand and support the overall usability.
3.1.1
Warnings and Timeouts (Business Logic)
The dnata CI application supports two types of timeout values used to control timeouts
and the information display on the users screen.
The warning-time defines the time until a warning pop-up is displayed on the screen
to inform the user to continue within the applications workflow. - Whereas the timeout
value defines the time until the application continues handling the timeout (eg. performing a clean-up process).
Both configuration values are defined in seconds and can be changed using the
administration portal.
Picture 45
Example for the
configuration
node
business.default
The configuration items can be found in the configuration node e.g. “business.default”
in the configuration paths:

•
mips.server.bl.process.warningTimes
•

These configuration values are used by the business logic in the following way:
•
Nbr. of seconds until popup is displayed: <warningTime>
•
Nbr. of seconds the popup is displayed: <timeout> – <warningTime>
•
Nbr. of seconds until application reacts to the timeout: <timeout>
