Setup GOV.UK development VM with local SSO, Whitehall & its draft stack

Data replication

The idea here is to load the routes for the router and draft-router. Life's too short to work out how to create the routes manually!

  • cd /var/govuk/govuk-puppet/development-vm/replication
  • Apply replicate-data-local.diff patch to skip all dbs on mongo-1.backend & api-mongo-1.api
  • Run the following command to import data for router & draft-router: ./ -s -d backups/YYYY-MM-DD -p -q -e -t -i 'collections_publisher contacts release search_admin tariff_admin tariff_temporal'
