The patent application (Publication Number: US20240037011A1) describes a method and system for managing interactions among software services in a computer system. The method involves accessing an interaction log in a development environment, parsing the log to extract interaction data, and comparing it to predefined rules for software services. If any interactions violate the rules, a software developer is notified with a recommended command to modify the rules. Upon executing the command, the rules are updated to prevent future violations. Additionally, the method includes passing source code to a quality assurance environment after rule modifications for testing operations with and without rule enforcement.

Furthermore, the system comprises processors and a service graph manager with components like a log parser, rule handler, and reporter. The system performs operations similar to the method, including accessing the interaction log, comparing data to rules, and reporting violations to developers with recommended commands for rule modifications. The system also facilitates changes to rules based on developer actions, passing source code to a quality assurance environment, and testing software service operations under different rule enforcement conditions. The method and system aim to streamline the development process by automating the detection and resolution of rule violations among software services, enhancing overall system reliability and efficiency.
