MyGDX offers a data sharing platform that facilitates agencies to share and access data from other agencies.
The data type that can be shared via MyGDX is open, limited and confidential (sulit).
The UUIDTYpe that can be used to login MyGDX are NRIC (using 12 digit MyKad number without dashes), UID (using user id), EMAIL (using email address), PASSPORT (using passport number) and OTHERS (using another user id) .
The Agency Administrator (with MyGPKI Cert) has to log in with an ID (MyKad No) that is registered into the system and choose which service to subscribe (every subscription must be accompanied with an official application letter). The Agency Approver then approves the application. Next, the application will be processed by the Data Provider Agency before the approval is granted to the agency.
After the User Agency requests a service subscription, the Provider Agency will process the application. Provider's Agency will apply for approval to approval authority such as the ICT Steering / Technical Committee of the agency. Once the approval has been obtained, the Approver Agency has to approve this application in the MyGDX portal. Subscription applications only need once for every service for the same agency.
Once the service subscription is approved, the Agency Administrator may request the data. There are two types of methods; through MyGDX Portal and Service-to-Service. If the data request is carried out through MyGDX portal, the Administrators can provide the required data directly. If the data request is through Service-to Service, additional information is required such as IP Server & port information, and the application name.
There are 3 types of methods:

a) Registry / API in Provider Agencies

Agencies are developing APIs to share data with MyGDX and data remains in the agency. The MyGDX team will rebuild the API at MyGDX to supply the data to the other agency.

b) Registry at MyGDX

The Agency gave MyGDX permission to develop the API on MyGDX by giving direct access to agency data and data remains in the agency.

c) Repository in MyGDX

The agency gives permission for agency data replication and integrated into MyGDX. The MyGDX team will develop APIs based on this repository. MyGDX agencies and teams need to keep data in the repository up to date.
After a data requests, MyGDX will provide the web service URL with Auth Code and Auth Key generated specifically for their IP Server. This information will also be emailed to the Agency Administrator. The agency can use this information in their application system coding.
Agency Administrators can request new data through the MyGDX Portal by suggesting a new service name and all field names (parameters) are required. Click here for an example of official letter.
The MyGDX Administrator will verify the service name and the official letter of application to determine the agency of the data owner. This application will be channeled to the Provider Agency to be processed. If the agency agrees, the web service will be developed and tested by the MyGDX team. Upon testing, this service will be registered in the MyGDX Service Catalog/Data and may be requested by another agency.
YES. MyGDX team can provide API development training via 'Simple REST API using PHP' for 3 days. Instructor / facilitator allowance is applied. Course schedule suggestions.
