ACL & cUrl

Avatar

Level 2

is there a way to somehow control ACL on 5.5 SP2 using cUrl? With the builtin functionalities it's close to imposisble to maintain rights for 80 groups and 300 authors. I'd like to set read, modify, create, delete, read acl, edit acl and replicate rights for LDAP groups in a convenient way. Anyone a good solution or interested in a common development?

Hi,

First I want to state, that it is of course possible to manage that amount of users and groups. If you the setup right, you should only have a very small number of ACLs per group. And as stated in the docs, do not assign ACLs to users.

Regarding your questions: [1] seems to be the page you are looking for.

kind regards,
Jörg

We can control the ACLs using cURL (Refer [1]) or we can write a custom servlet aswell using 'AccessControlUtil' API
