Security ModesΒΆ

Colectica Repository has three basic modes of operation to enforce item content security. The default mode is Enforcing.

Enforcing
The default mode which will enable and enforce all per item and per type security policy on the repository, denying access where appropriate and logging failed actions.
Permissive
In Permissive mode, Colectica Repository’s security policy is checked but will not enforce per type and per item security policy, only warn and log actions. Permissive mode is useful for troubleshooting security policy issues.
Disabled
Colectica Repository security policies are disabled, but authentication is still required.

The security mode can be configured in the Repository.Settings.config file.

<Algenta.Colectica.Repository.Settings>
    <!-- Values include Disabled, Permissive, and Enforcing -->
    <setting name="RepositorySecurityMode" serializeAs="String">
      <value>Enforcing</value>
    </setting>
</Algenta.Colectica.Repository.Settings>
