DefaultAcl

public class DefaultAcl extends Object

Common default ACL object that can be used for an entire data repository.

The common ACL can be designated 'entire domain accessible' or can define specific readers that will be used for the entire repository. It is considered a configuration error to specify both 'entire domain accessible' while also specifying a specific set of readers, etc.

Optional configuration parameters:

  • defaultAcl.mode - Specifies the default ACL mode (DefaultAcl.DefaultAclMode).
  • defaultAcl.public - Specifies (true/false), that the common ACL used for the entire repository has "public" access.
  • defaultAcl.readers.users - Specifies the common ACL readers in a comma delimited list (only used when "public" is false).
  • defaultAcl.readers.groups - Specifies the common ACL group readers in a comma delimited list (only used when "public" is false).
  • defaultAcl.denied.users - Specifies the common ACL denied readers in a comma delimited list (only used when "public" is false).
  • defaultAcl.denied.groups - Specifies the common ACL denied group readers in a comma delimited list (only used when "public" is false).
  • defaultAcl.name - Specifies the virtual container name of the default ACL item. Set this parameter especially if multiple connectors may be used on the same data source in parallel to prevent them from interfering with each other. This item's queue is always designated as DEFAULT_ACL_VIRTUAL_CONTAINER_QUEUE. Default: DEFAULT_ACL_VIRTUAL_CONTAINER

Sample usage from the connector initialization (init(ConnectorContext)):

IndexingService myIndexingServiceInstance = context.getIndexingService();

 // one time creation of the default ACL based on configuration parameters (see above)
 DefaultAcl defaultAcl = DefautAcl.fromConfiguration(myIndexingServiceInstance);
 

And then later during iteration through the repository data:

// while looping through the repository data
 ...
 Item item = ... // create the Item for uploading
 defaultAcl.applyToIfEnabled(item); // will update the item's ACL depending on the mode
 // upload the item
 ...

Public Methods

public boolean applyToIfEnabled (Item item)

Applies a common default ACL to the passed Item.

The mode defines how default ACLs are applied:

  • NONE - Default ACL is not being used.
  • FALLBACK - Default ACL is only used if none are already present.
  • APPEND - Default ACL is added to the existing ACL.
  • OVERRIDE - Default ACL replaces any existing ACL.

Parameters
item the object to apply the default ACL
Returns
  • true if the common ACL was applied to this Item

public static DefaultAcl fromConfiguration (IndexingService indexingService)

Creates an instance of a DefaultAcl from the Configuration.

Parameters
indexingService connector's indexing service instance for uploading default ACL to Cloud Search
Returns

public DefaultAcl.DefaultAclMode getDefaultAclMode ()

Returns DefaultAclMode.
