[EP-tech] Re: EPrints ACL's status (EPACL or alternatives)


One more thing. In our requirements we need to group documents in terms of collections. I am thinking of implementing the collections notion in EPrints using this guide: http://wiki.eprints.org/w/How_to_control_eprint_workflow_based_on_a_user_field

which, basically adds a custom field (collection), populates it via a namedset and adds appropriate functionality in workflows. If I do that, will I be able to use the ACL's with respect to such a custom field? Meaning, will I be able to assign specific rights to users/groups per collection? (eg. a specific group will be able to have write access on a specific collection while not be able to have read access on another)

John B and I have got the end of this week, and all next week block-booked to work on this :o)

We're close to a functioning system - it will work (but it might not look pretty).

If you have specific requirements (specifically around what systems you'd like to be able to authorise a user - LDAP / Shibboleth / OpenID type stuff), let us know - it may be something we've covered, or it might be something that will help us complete the picture!

Subject: [EP-tech] EPrints ACL's status (EPACL or alternatives)

Hello everyone,

I've read about EPrints ACL support in
http://wiki.eprints.org/w/EPrints_User_Group_2015-01-13. It seems that
this project is a work-in-progress. Does anybody know what its status
(EPACL) is at the moment and if/when it will be available as a plugin?
If not, are there any other alternatives that allow finer grain
privileges in EPrints? I've seen that some of EPACL developers are
posting in this list, so I assume that an "authoritative" answer could
be provided :).

Thanks all in advance,
