Title CERN Controls Configuration Service - Event-Based Processing of Controls Changes

Abstract The Controls Configuration Service (CCS) is a core component of the data-driven Control System at CERN. Built around a central database, the CCS provides a range of client APIs and graphical user interfaces (GUI) to enable efficient and user-friendly configuration of Controls. As the entry point for all the modifications to Controls system configurations, the CCS provides the means to ensure global data coherency and propagation of changes across the distributed Controls sub-systems and services. With the aim of achieving global data coherency in the most efficient manner, the need for an advanced data integrator emerged. The Controls Configuration Data Lifecycle manager (CCDL) is the core integration bridge between the distributed Controls sub-systems. It aims to ensure consistent, reliable, and efficient exchange of information and triggering of workflow actions based on events representing Controls configuration changes. The CCDL implements and incorporates cutting-edge technologies used successfully in the IT industry. This paper describes the CCDL architecture, design and technology choices made, as well as the tangible benefits that have been realised since its introduction.
