Editor for Fine Grained Authz Permissions File


This is a simple plugin to help edit the fine grained authz permissions file. In addition to providing a text editor is also provides a list of the current project users, so they are readily available.

A more elaborate editor was considered where sections could be selected, then the user/group to give permission to. However this was considered to be overly complicated and bloated.

The plugin takes the group information from the groups file and will put it at the head of the authz file so the same groups are used. If there isn't a group file, the groups section should remain intact. Ideally this would be a link.

After creating or modifying the main group file, to include the changed group definitions the editor page should be opened and then 'Apply Changes' clicked.

A check that the entered text can be parsed as an ini config file is done prior to saving.
