  • Disable configuration for users

    Hi,

    Easy question:
    Is it possible to disable the Button "Configuration" for all users?

    Thank you!
    hubsif.

    You could always remove the code from the page templates ... that's what I did on a customer installation that wasn't supposed to have the "change password" button ... (of course, anybody who knows the URL could still use it, but I reckon 99+% of the users won't ...)

      That means that it is not possible to disable this button by a configuration parameter?

        Correct, the configuration only contains settings that affect the user, not other users. To understand this request a bit better, what do you try to accomplish by removing access to the configuration part?

        Greetings

          Our customer wants to disable this part to minimize support requests. He thinks the user could forget about the settings he made, wonder why something does not work and open a request.

          The one thing the customer originally wanted, was to disable the user from changing his name.

            Hi,

            well it may be speculation but isn't it possible that customers will open enormous amounts of support requests about missing functionality? I mean the configuration menu contains much stuff users want to customize.
            The functionality to let the user change his or her name can be easily disabled separately, so there is no need to wipe out the whole configuration tree. Just edit:

            /opt/open-xchange/etc/admindaemon/User.properties
            USERNAME_CHANGEABLE=false

            After restarting the open-xchange-admin service and creating a new context, users of this new context won't be able to change their user names.

            To remove the ability to let the user change his or her password, just configure the --access-edit-password parameter to "off" when creating or changing a user.

            Greetings

              I just had a look at "User.properties". "USERNAME_CHANGEABLE" is set to "false" and always was, since I never changed that parameter.

              Maybe we're talking about something different: In our setup a user can edit his "Display name" in Configuration->User->Personal Data.

                Changing the user data can be configured at:

                /opt/open-xchange/etc/groupware/foldercache.properties
                ENABLE_INTERNAL_USER_EDIT=FALSE

                This also becomes effective for newly created contexts.

                Greetings

                  Q1) Looks like within my installation

                  /opt/open-xchange/etc/groupware/foldercache.properties

                  is not available (no file by that name).

                  Has it been relocated, or do I need to create that file ?

                  I also figured out that a standard user is able to modify distribution lists, e.g. as well as hes able to change all of his personal data.

                  Q2) Supposingly the above settings should prevent him from changing anything, but is there any way to adapt permissions any more granular than that ?

                  Q3) Is there any overview which permisssions can be granted / denied to each user as from the GUI ?

                    has been relocated:

                    Code:
                    $ find /opt/open-xchange/ -name foldercache.properties
                    /opt/open-xchange/etc/common/foldercache.properties
                    Of course a user can create his own, private distribution lists. That cannot be disbled.

                    Code:
                    $ /opt/open-xchange/sbin/changeuser --extendedoptions | grep -- --access
