A project is underway to replace the Licence Provider Notification System (LPNS). The current LPNS has been highlighted as an area for improvement through feedback in annual LP surveys and is supported by legacy technology which is due for replacement.

 

The LPNS Replacement Project will deliver improvements to the Licence Provider Notification service platform and enhance the experience for LPs.

 

In consultation with LPs, the key function they required from the LPNS was to easily access the relevant event data that impacted their customers. The new platform will therefore focus on providing data in a way which is easier for LPs to take into their own systems and processes.

 

As a result, LPs will no longer need to log into a Portal to search for planned and unplanned events. Instead, APIs will be provided for LPs to consume the data into their own systems and CSV files will be available for download from a SharePoint site. The APIs and CSVs will provide all the relevant event details and will also provide a list of impacted SPIDs for each event. There will be an option to get all event details or LPs can choose to only consume/download events impacting their customers.

 

A draft LP guide for connecting to the new LPNS has been created. This will provide the information required for LPs to successfully request the event data through both options.

 

Sample CSVs for are available for all events and for events that impact the LP's customers.
