Getting started


You are viewing a version of the documentation that is currently under active development.

Before you start

Welcome to the Single Digital Presence (SDP). Before you start working with the DPC team there are a few tasks to complete.

  • Request access to JIRA

    For issues needing more than a quick helping hand, having access to JIRA will allow you to raise tickets with the SDP team in JIRA Service Desk.

  • Request access to Slack, Lagoon and GitHub

    Now that you can create tickets in JIRA Service Desk, send us a ticket with name, email and GitHub handle and ask for access to the following:

    • The Lagoon Dashboard allows you to check the status of your builds in Lagoon.
    • DPC uses Slack for ad-hoc help. Ask for help here, but if it is complex we will probably get you to raise a ticket.
    • There are GitHub repositories for both the front-end and back-end applications that you will be working on.
