# ADR :

  • :

# Context

This section contains all the context one needs to understand the current state, and why there is a problem. It should be as succinct as possible and introduce the high level idea behind the solution.

# Alternative Approaches

This section contains information around alternative options that are considered before making a decision. It should contain an explanation of why the alternative approach(es) were not chosen.

# Decision

This section records the decision that was made. It is best to record as much info as possible from the discussion that happened. This aids in not having to go back to the Pull Request to get the needed information.

# Detailed Design

This section does not need to be filled in at the start of the ADR, but must be completed prior to the merging of the implementation.

Here are some common questions that get answered as part of the detailed design:

  • What are the user requirements?

  • What systems will be affected?

  • What new data structures are needed, what data structures will be changed?

  • What new APIs will be needed, what APIs will be changed?

  • What are the efficiency considerations (time/space)?

  • What are the expected access patterns (load/throughput)?

  • Are there any logging, monitoring or observability needs?

  • Are there any security considerations?

  • Are there any privacy considerations?

  • How will the changes be tested?

  • If the change is large, how will the changes be broken up for ease of review?

  • Will these changes require a breaking (major) release?

# Status

A decision may be "proposed" if it hasn't been agreed upon yet, or "accepted" once it is agreed upon. Once the ADR has been implemented mark the ADR as "implemented". If a later ADR changes or reverses a decision, it may be marked as "deprecated" or "superseded" with a reference to its replacement.


# Consequences

This section describes the consequences, after applying the decision. All consequences should be summarized here, not just the "positive" ones.

# Positive

# Negative

# Neutral
