The WellGEO RegRep team at Wellfleet Software is pleased to announce our latest release of WellGEO RegRep 4.11. WellGEO RegRep is an implementation of the OASIS ebXML RegRep 4 standard.
Here is a brief summary of the new features and improvements to existing features:
- New Wizard - Define Access Control Policy
WellGEO RegRep has supported contextual Role Based Access Control for many releases. However, until this release, users had to be experts in XACML and had to hand-craft custom XACML access control policies to secure access to objects that required specialized access control rules. This was a cumbersome process. Furthermore, the custom policies it produced tended to be a performance bottleneck
The new "Define Access Control Policy" wizard allows the user to create custom access control policies (policy) and assign them to one or more objects. The wizard makes it easy to create policies using customizable roles that are defined optionally within the context of specific organizations. A policy defines a number of policy rules that are defined as a set of actions and the contextual roles that are permitted to perform those actions. The wizard also makes it easy to assign a policy to protect one or more objects including all objects in a folder tree.
In addition, optimizations have been made to make custom policies perform as efficiently as the Default Access Control Policies so it is now both simple and efficient to use custom access control policies to secure objects in the Registry.
- ISO19139DiscoveryQuery now supports multiple keywords in the REST interface
- ISO 19139 cataloger now catalogs SV_ServiceIdentification for keywords, spatial and temporal extents
- Access Control Policy Inheritance turned off to provide scalable performance of access control decisions. Instead users may use the "Define Access Control Policy" wizard to easily assign a policy to a tree of resources
- Performance optimizations for GetAuditTrail query performing poorly when AuditableEvent has many AffectedObjects
In addition to above, a number of bugs have been fixed.
