Backend

Initial setup

First, make sure you have docker, then run:
yarn dev-services judicial-system-backend
yarn dev-services judicial-system-message-handler
Then run the migrations and seed the database:
yarn nx run judicial-system-backend:migrate
yarn nx run judicial-system-backend:seed

Running locally

You can serve this service locally by running:
yarn start judicial-system-backend
To enable SMS notifications to an on-call judge provide a password for the SMS service and court mobile numbers:
NOVA_PASSWORD=<SMS password> COURTS_MOBILE_NUMBERS='{ <court-id>: mobileNumbers: <judge mobile number> }' yarn start judicial-system-backend
Similarly, you can enable electronic signatures of judge rulings by providing a Dokobit access token: DOKOBIT_ACCESS_TOKEN=<Dokobit access token>
In local development you can preview emails with ethereal nodemailer previews by following the urls in the logs. Alternatively, you can enable email sending via AWS SES turn off email test account and provide an email region:
EMAIL_USE_TEST_ACCOUNT=false EMAIL_REGION=eu-west-1 yarn start judicial-system-backend
You need to be authenticated against AWS for this to work.
To enable prison and prison administration email notifications provide email addresses: PRISON_EMAIL=<prison email> PRISON_ADMIN_EMAIL=<prison administration email>
To enable writing to AWS S3 you need to be authenticated against AWS.
Finally, you can enable communication with the court system via xRoad by providing appropriate values for the environment variables specified in the xRoad and courtClientOptions sections in environment.ts.
To get latest texts from Contentful you need to provide an appropriate value for the environment variable CONTENTFUL_ACCESS_TOKEN.

Unit tests

yarn test judicial-system-backend

OpenApi and Swagger

Visit
localhost:3344/api/swagger

Database changes

Migrations need to be created by hand.

Generate a empty migration file you can simply run:

npx sequelize-cli migration:generate --name update-case
this will generate a migration file with empty exports for up (Altering commands) and down (Reverting commands).
To run the migrations on the local database run:
# for UP migrations
yarn nx run judicial-system-backend:migrate
# for DOWN migrations
yarn nx run judicial-system-backend:migrate/undo

API

Running locally

You can serve this service locally by running:
yarn start judicial-system-api
You can enable communication with the court system via xRoad by providing appropriate values for the environment variables specified in the xRoad and courtClientOptions sections in environment.ts.
To get latest texts from Contentful you need to provide an appropriate value for the environment variable CONTENTFUL_ACCESS_TOKEN.

Web

A platform for the exchange of data, information, formal decisions and notifications between parties in the Icelandic judicial system.

Start the application locally

Start the backend locally. Instructions on how to do that can be found in the backend project.
Start the application
yarn start judicial-system-web
Then the project should be running on https://localhost:4200/.
To be able to fetch a list of lawyers you need to provide a value for the environment variable LAWYERS_ICELAND_API_KEY
To skip authentication at innskraning.island.is navigate to /api/auth/login?nationalId=<national_id> in the web project where <national_id> is the national id of a known user. Known users:
  • Áki Ákærandi
    • NationalId: 0000000009
    • Role: Prosecutor
  • Dalli Dómritari
    • NationalId: 0000001119
    • Role: Registrar
  • Dóra Dómari
    • NationalId: 0000002229
    • Role: Judge

Testing strategy

This project uses two types of automated tests, unit tests and e2e tests. We use Jest to write unit tests against code like utility functions. If we need to test custom components in isolation, we use React testing library. Finally, to test entire screens in our project we use Cypress.

Running the tests

Unit tests
yarn test judicial-system-web
e2e tests
yarn nx e2e judicial-system-web-e2e --watch

Message Extraction from Contentful

Running yarn nx extract-strings judicial-system-{namespace} in the root folder /island.is will extract messages from the project and create or update a Namespace entry in Contentful. Make sure you have the env CONTENTFUL_ENVIRONMENT=test to update the strings against dev and staging and CONTENTFUL_ENVIRONMENT=master to update against prod.

Example for namespaces in web:

yarn nx extract-strings judicial-system-web
will update namespaces:
  • judicial.system.core
  • judicial.system.restriction_cases
  • judicial.system.investigation_cases

For backend:

yarn nx extract-strings judicial-system-backend
will update namespaces:
  • judicial.system.backend

To test authentication locally

  • npm install -g local-ssl-proxy
  • change defaultcookie in apps/judicial-system/api/src/app/modules/auth/auth.controller.ts:
    const defaultCookieOptions: CookieOptions = { secure: true, }
  • add .env to web project and change PORT to 4202
  • start project
  • local-ssl-proxy --source 4200 --target 4202

XRD API

This service is for access from xRoad.

Running locally

You can serve this service locally by running:
yarn start judicial-system-xrd-api

Scheduler

This service is for running scheduled tasks. Currently, archiving old cases is the only task.

Running locally

You can serve this service locally by running:
yarn start judicial-system-scheduler

Message Handler

This service handles messages posted by other services for downstream processing.

Initial setup

First, make sure you have docker, then run:
yarn dev-services judicial-system-message-handler

Running locally

You can serve this service locally by running:
yarn start judicial-system-message-handler

Feature flags

If you want to hide some UI element in certain environments you can use a feature flag. Lets say you want to hide the SECRET_FEATURE in STAGING and PROD but still be able to see it on DEV. Start by adding it to Feature in /libs/judicial-system/types/src/lib/feature.ts
export enum Feature {
NONE = 'NONE', // must be at least one
SECRET_FEATURE = 'SECRET_FEATURE',
}
Then add the featre in availableFeatures in apps/judicial-system/web/src/components/FeatureProvider/FeatureProvider.tsx
const availableFeatures: Feature[] = [Feature.SECRET_FEATURE]
Then you need to update the Helm charts. This is done via a script
./infra/scripts/generate-chart-values.sh judicial-system
You can now use the FeatureContext to hide SECRET_FEATURE in the UI.
const Component = () => {
const { features } = useContext(FeatureContext)
return (
if (features.includes(Feature.SECRET_FEATURE)) {
<p>This will only show on DEV, not STAGING or PROD</p>
}
)
}
