Managing member access to activities
Use administrative commands to change the level of access that members have to one or more activities.
Before you begin
To run administrative commands, you must use the wsadmin client. See Starting the wsadmin client for details.
Note: You cannot use the AccessControlService commands to fetch, set, or delete access to community activities. See Communities administrative commands for information about the commands you can use to add a person to a community.
the following command to access the Activities configuration file:
If prompted to specify a service to connect to, type 1 to pick the first node in the list. Most commands can run on any node. If the command writes or reads information to or from a file using a local file path, you must pick the node where the file is stored.
- Find the hash table identifier for the activity or activities
for which you want to edit the access levels. Fetch the ActivityID
from the output by running the following command.
- Identify the activity or activities that you want to edit
from the returned list. For more information, see Getting a
list of activities. For
ActivityService.fetchActivities() ActivityService.fetchDeletedActivities() ActivityService.fetchCompletedActivities() ActivityService.fetchActivitiesByDate(dateType, beginTime, endTime, lastUUID) ActivityService.fetchActivityById(uuid) ActivityService.fetchActivitiesCreatedByMember(java.util.Hashtable member) ActivityService.fetchActivitiesByMember(java.util.Hashtable member) ActivityService.fetchActivitiesByOwner(java.util.Hashtable member)
- Enter the following commands to see the current access
levels of the members of a single activity:
ActivityService.fetchActivityById(uuid) AccessControlService.fetchAccess(java.util.Hashtable activity)
- Create a variable that contains information about one or
more people to whom you would like to grant access to the activities.
- If you are defining the owner of an activity, save the member information as a hash table
variable. The setOwnerAccess command expects the member parameter to be provided in hash table
format. To do so, use the following
- If you are granting author or reader access, save the member information as a vector
variable. The setMemberAccess and setReaderAccess commands expect the member parameter to be
provided in vector format. A vector can represent one person or multiple people. A vector contains
one or more hash tables. Each hash table contains information for a single person. To save member
information as a vector variable, use the following
- If you are defining the owner of an activity, save the member information as a hash table variable. The setOwnerAccess command expects the member parameter to be provided in hash table format. To do so, use the following command:
- Use the following commands to make the access level changes
that you want to make:
- To grant many people owner-level access to one or more
AccessControlService.setOwnersAccess(java.util.Vector activities, java.util.Hashtable owner)
- To grant one person owner-level access to one or more
AccessControlService.setOwnerAccess(java.util.Vector activities, java.util.Hashtable owner)
- To grant one person or many people author-level access to one
or more activities:
AccessControlService.setMembersAccess(java.util.Vector activities, java.util.Vector members)
- To grant one person or many people reader-level access to one
or more activities:
AccessControlService.setReadersAccess(java.util.Vector activities, java.util.Vector members)
- To deny access to a set of
AccessControlService.deleteAccess(java.util.Vector activities, java.util.Vector members)
- To grant many people owner-level access to one or more activities:
wsadmin>execfile("activitiesAdmin.py") wsadmin>newmember=ActivitiesMemberService.fetchMemberByEmail("firstname.lastname@example.org") wsadmin>act=ActivityService.fetchActivityById("bc92738c-492c-4b52-8eee-c8ab6e2bd84d") wsadmin>from java.util import Vector wsadmin>newmembervec=Vector() wsadmin>newmembervec.add(newmember) Note: This returns a '1' wsadmin>actvec = Vector() wsadmin>actvec.add(act) Note: This returns a '1' wsadmin>AccessControlService.setOwnersAccess(actvec,newmembervec)
