Collaborative Space Plugin 4.4
The Collaborative space plugin provides support to open, manage and work in Collaborative Spaces.
A Collaborative Space is a portal of services dedicated to a set of members. A collaborative Space is either public, private or secret.
All the publications of a private Collaborative Space are restricted to its members. In addition to functional services (calendar, wiki, document explorer, ...) special services are reserved to the administrators:
- members management: to add members, send invitations and validate subscriptions
- service management: to add and remove services
- settings: to customize the behavior and the look of the collaborative space
At creation, and later in the Collaborative Space settings, JCMS offers 3 access levels : public, private and secret.
Accessing private or secret space's contents is only available for the space's attendees.
Signup mode depends on access mode :
|Sign-up submissions validated by leaders||x||x|
|Sign-ups managed by leaders||x||x||x|
From version 4.1, a migration from old access policy
publicAccess to the new one
accessPolicy is needed.
Migration rules are :
publicAccess : true -> accessPolicy : public publicAccess : false -> accessPolicy : secret
A Perl script, convertCSPublicAccessToAccessPolicy.pl, is available. How to use :
$ ./convertCSPublicAccessToAccessPolicy.pl store.xml > newStore.xml
