Veteran Online Application

VONAPP is used to apply for education benefits. It completes form 22-1990 to allow a user to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility (CoE). These forms are completed and saved in the Database before being written by the create_daily_spool_files task and sent via SFTP to the TIMS system

Integration Endpoints

Education Benefits

  • Type: SFTP

  • Endpoint: ENV['EDU_SFTP_HOST'] port 22

Environmental Configuration

  • EDU_SFTP_HOST

  • EDU_SFTP_USER

  • EDU_SFTP_PASS

These parameters are stored in AWS Credstash most recently but we’re previously set via an ansible role.

For example, EDU_SFTP_PASS is stored in Credstash under the key /dsva-vagov/vets-api/<env>/edu_sftp_pass. Replacing Parameter Store, Credstash is the platform provider for sensitive key store.
