After comparing the existing firewall applications,the next task was to create user stories.Although I had written few user stories,they were not as detail oriented as we wanted them to be . Most of the articles that I found online had the same template for all user stories. So,my early user stories were along the lines of ‘As a system admin,I want to be able to block and unblock ports ,so that I can allow/block certain applications on my system’. After some pointers on writing user stories from Andreas,I was able to create personas and I think they still need a lot of refining. Writing the workflow was fairly easy once the personas and user stories were created.
For creating the wireframes,I used Pencil and downloaded a few stencils and I was good to go. Here are the wireframes that I have created for the firewall support in Cockpit.
My next task is to implement these wireframes followed by testing. Meanwhile,I would really appreciate some feedback on these wireframes 🙂
Until next time!
