[S] PML Attribute Authority address needs to be permanent

Description

#855 raised for the BADC applies to the other data providers.

Each Data Provider needs a permanent URI set aside for their Attribute Authority. MOLES [and CMSL] include the role name, Attribute Authority address tuple in their records. The latter should be fixed to avoid the need to have to change all data records should the Attribute Authority move location.

The address could be set up with a proxy e.g.

http://some-host-inside-firewall:51000/AttributeAuthority -> http://aa.data-provider-name.nerc.ac.uk

  • Status changed from new to assigned

Unless something terrible happens, the permanent location will be  http://www.neodaas.ac.uk/projects/ndg/attAuthority (or  http://www.neodaas.ac.uk/projects/ndg/attAuthority/AttributeAuthority to be complete). The development version is the same but with "wwwdev" rather than "www".

Note NDG security is currently only active on our development server, so the working URL at the time of writing is  http://wwwdev.neodaas.ac.uk/projects/ndg/attAuthority
