The “SIF 3.0 Environment” the totality of every service the Consumer might possibly provision itself to access. Based upon authentication constraints however, the Consumer’s access to some services it can see might be restricted. It is provided by:  Provider in a direct Environment  Environment Provider in a brokered Environment Holds mainly  Service URLs scoped for each zone  Access Rights for each Service scoped for each zone

If no zoneId is provided in the REST URL then the default Zone is assumed.  A Zone is a collection of Services a consumer has some sort of access to In SIF 2.x they were a collection of SIF Objects an agents had access to. Access rights are allocated in each zone for each service Context may be assigned to each service.  Various types of Services Object Services (StudentPersonal, SchoolInfo etc.) Utility Services (Alerts, Zone Registry etc) Functional Services (i.e. Endo-Of-Year rollover).

If no contextId is provided in the REST URL then the default Context is assumed.  In a zone there can be more than one Provider for the same “SIF Object” as long as they operate in a different context! Current Students Special Ed Students  Contexts are NOT global they apply to a specific Service Provider in a zone

One RefId per service it calls for the same object. A service is scoped per environment, zone and context.  May sound complicated but most of the time you will operate in the DEFAULT Zone and Context.
