Mashup access restrictions

Hi All,

I have built a mashup using objects from a QVF.

However, i am not able to provide access to a set of folks only for the mashup and at the same time not show the QVF in the streams.IF i publish the app to a stream and provide access to that stream for a set of users and then allow them to access the mashup page, only then it works. Do we have an option to not show the QVF on the hub but still provide access to the mashup for certain users.

Is this possible. if so, could you please help explain how.

Thanks,
Aadil

Re: Mashup access restrictions

I have set up a dedicated Stream for MashUp qvf's used solely as data sources.

I give users access to the data source App, but do not give them access to the Stream.  Thus the users can access the App as a data source via the MashUp , but cannot see the Stream or its Apps via the Hub.

We also use the same approach internally for the last 3 years and it has been working wonderfully.

Sometimes I also create a new virtual proxy, and authorize on that... (if user logged in via VP1, then show, otherwise reject)

Re: Mashup access restrictions

Hi Bill and Alexander,

at first i assumed that this will simply work by creating a security rule. But, i was wrong.

Could you please help get this right.

I have created a new stream but have added security rule that will not show this stream for any users.

I have Published a mashup app to this stream.

I have created a security rule that has a resource filter as (App*). Here i have written conditions that who should see all the apps.

What else should i do to make this work.

As of now the mashup page loads, but the objects dont render or rather those divs stay blank.

Thanks,
Aadil
