Effective Permissions
Abstract

In order that the i4connected effective permissions to be applied to your i4connected portal please follow the RabbitMQ installation and configuration guidelines.

The new i4connected security model enforces a new set of permissions, also known as Effective Permissions. The Server settings for them are stored under the WEBfactory.DWH.Server.exe.config file and can be customized by the user, as follows:

  1. Open the i4connected Server file WEBfactory.DWH.Server.exe.config with an editor tool and proceed with the following settings, under the Effective Permissions section:

    Note

    In case no custom changes are needed, RabbitMQ Server will take the default values for Effective Permissions, which are:

    • RabbitMqUri - amqp://localhost

    • RabbitMqExchange - effective.permissions

    • RabbitMqQueueName - effectivePermissions

    • RetryTimeout - 30sec

    However, in case the RabbitMQ Server will be used for more than one i4connected installation, these settings need to be customized for each i4connected setup.

    1. RabbitMQUri - the Url pointing towards the RabbitMQ Server.

      Tip

      The Url will be formatted as follows: amqp://user:pass@host:port/vs.

    2. RabbitMQEXchange - the name of the RabbitMQ Exchange.

      Important

      In case you are using your own RabbitMQ server, please provide the WEBfactory team with the name of your RabbitMQ Exchange.

      Please also make sure that yourRabbitMQ Exchange meets the following requirements:

      • Exchange Type - Direct

      • Exchange Durability - Durable

      • Exchange Auto delete - No

    3. RabbitMqQueueName - the name of the Queue configured in the RabbitMQ Server application.

    4. RetryTimeout - the custom timeout value for retrying the data publishing.

  2. Make sure that the respective lines are enabled (uncommented).
