In order to assure that Marketplace sign-in is not broken in any way by Persona production deployments, which occur every two weeks, we would like to have two Marketplace servers stood up and pointed at the Persona staging deployment: One production Marketplace, the other Marketplace stage.

These don't need to be particularly fast or fancy.  Whatever the minimum hardware requirements are will almost certainly be fine.
back story: we had a login outage yesterday in prod caused by a Persona change that revealed a bug in Marketplace's code. The bug was silently ignored until the new Persona release.

The new servers will let Persona team test our integration before it hits prod. I think these servers could be set up to auto-update once a day or whatever like stage.
And going forward, we would want to be able to push any new Marketplace staging and production code directly to the testing servers as well.

Do you want to meet sometime next week to discuss requirements?

oremj - Awesome! Yes, we'd like to meet ASAP as we ship every two weeks and our QA are happy to test this new environment before green lighting a production push.

I've updated the title - Marketplace's production release schedule is more frequent than Perona's (currently once per week vs Persona at once every two weeks), so we should be well covered by a single instance: Marketplace prod pointing to Persona stage

Current Plan:
oremj/jason to create

This stage is a copy of latest Marketplace production code pointed at Persona stage (

Work will start roughly after July 15th.

Meeting notes:

oremj has volunteered a manual stage flip during our final QA pass for Persona production releases, as a temporary workaround.
FYI, if you also want to connect to payments you'll need a webpay instance configured for persona stage in addition to Marketplace

Just an update, I have been working on this instance this week and is almost ready.
I see that is down (Noticed it on Wednesday, but didn't update here). It was up on Tuesday.

Should be fixed now. The auto update failed and I had to redeploy to the environment again. Let me know if you have any issues.
Thanks. Looks like it's working for me.

5 years ago has been configured with a copy of the landfill database and assets. The environment will update to the latest tag for zamboni, webpay, and fireplace every night. Let me know if there are any issues.
