That’s a good write up of the state transitions for the new gateway request process.  Thank
you for your pull request implementing these changes.  This will improve the gateway request
process both for users requesting gateways and for admins creating gateways.

I’ve merged your pull request now to the develop branch.

Hello dev,

I have a created a PR for the changes made to the PGA portal -
The list of fixes that were resolved are mentioned in the comment. Since there were many changes
with respect to the PGA portal, I created a single PR.

There has been a change in the Gateway request flow. It involves the following steps:

  1.  The user creates account and logs in.
  2.  The user can then request a Gateway by just mentioning the Gateway Name, Gateway Contact
Email and Public Project Description. (GATEWAY STATE - REQUESTED)
  3.  Once the Gateway is requested, an email is sent to the PGA Admin about a new request.
  4.  The Admin can then engage in an out of band communication with the user (using the Gateway
Contact Email provided) incase they need some clarification regarding the request. The Admin
can also modify the request as needed.
  5.  Once satisfied with details provided, the Admin can either approve (GATEWAY STATE -
APPROVED) or deny (GATEWAY STATE - DENIED) the request. Note: Approving the Gateway will not
create the tenant.
  6.  If the Gateway is approved, the User is asked to update other Gateway information through
a form. All the fields of the form are required.
  7.  The Admin or the provider can edit any detail of the Gateway (through a form) as long
as the Gateway is in APPROVED state. The User can also choose to cancel the request. (GATEWAY
  8.  Every time the details are edited, admin gets an email
  9.  Once all the Gateway details are filled, the Admin can verify them and create the Gateway.
The User and Admin can only view the Gateway details now. (GATEWAY STATE - CREATED)
  10. When the Gateway is created, the Keycloak auth keys are generated and available for
the provider to use or they can wait for the Admin to deploy the Gateway.
  11. In case the provider wants the Admin to host the Gateway, the Admin then manually deploys
  12. If at all the Gateway is not in use, the Admin can deactivate it. (GATEWAY STATE - DEACTIVATED)
  13. Every time there is a change in the Gateway details or the Gateway state, both the provider
and the Admin receive a mail.

The Gateway ID is created by converting the characters of the given Gateway Name to lower
case and replacing any space or special character with a hyphen.

Suggestions are welcome. Have a great weekend!
