Make Property Group non-deleteable

Post by barghest »

Hello,

Is it possible to make a Property Group non-deleteable after it is created? For example, making the "Datos" property group from the "unique name" Scripting example non-deleteable, such that no user could accidentally delete the information? I am aware that i can make the group as well as the fields read-only, but they still could be deleted by accident.

All the property group can be read-only, not only the fields, take a look at the dtd. And also can enable extended security, see http://wiki.openkm.com/index.php/Applic ... d_security in your case should be used 8192 value and restrict privileges to everybody.

Yes, i am aware of this feature. This would not prevent anyone from deleting the property group, however.

Thank you for the information on extended security - are there plans to implement this feature in the Community Edition, or does the Community Edition have other means to ensure that property groups cannot be deleted by users?

The actual privilege only goes on direction of update ( that also include not delete ). In your scenario should be necessary work with two grants ( delete and update ), first one is not implemented.

Hi jllort.

In your last post, I understand that in community version it is possible to restrict property group update.
When I look in documentation you refer to, I cannot see how to perform this. I only saw the reference to security mask to enable but it seems to be only available in professionnal version.

Could you please help me in setting this up?
Thanks a lot.

Regards

It's only available on professional version, you can implement it in community or wait until we release it.

Hi jllort.

Thanks for your clear answer.
Do you have a rough idea of when you expect to release it in community version?
Regards.

The actual roadmap priority will give you some idea ( goals in order by priority ):
- January / February release the new version of the web.
- Februay / March ( release the OpenKM Knowledge Center -> something new we have been working las year ).
- April ( Release the OpenKM Knowledge Center based developement environment based in OSGI ).
- Undefined date -> finish the documentation at kcenter for OpenKM community version ( for us is a community priority, actual wiki is a big messi )
- Make improvements on actual community UI look and feel to get more modern appearence.
- Release new Community version based on OpenKM Professional 6.3 ( probably will be the last release based on this 6.3 )

On a realistyc estimation I think will be at the ends of the year 2016:
2014-08-28 we released 6.3
2015-10-16 we released 6.3.1

Take it as a reference.
