Setting up RabbitMQ for 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.

Important

The Effective permissions feature is only available for i4connected 5.6 version. If your application version is lower, these steps are not needed.

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 customised 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 Efective 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 customised 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.

      Important
