    Transfer public access rights with Courier

    Not sure if this has been asked before, but I've searched the forums, and couldn't find anything related to this. So here is my question.

    Is it (or will it be) possible to transfer access right with courier? And what do I need to do to make it happen?

    Regards

    Hi Jesper

    Currently Courier doesn't do anything i regard to access.config file which is what stores the access rights

    Will make it a top-priority to ensure that future releases does this, but 2.5 is locked down, so it won't be untill 2.5.1 

    If you need it urgently, a custom data resolver can fix it for you tho, but would need a bit of code tho

    Hi Per,

    The system in question just went into production, so we'll just keep the right management process as a manual process.

    But I will be looking forward to seeing this functionality included in Couier vNext

    Hi Jesper

    Out of interest what manual process are you using for publishing updated access rights ( access.config file) to other servers? I am having the problem where updating the permissions on 1 server are not being copied to other servers in the group, and I also was looking into Courier.

    Any help / suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi Tara,

    Right now the manual process, is recreating the access rights on the published website, or in other words: We have no process. 

    Did you try copying the access.config file manually or via a script to the other servers. If you did and the rights changed from 1 server to others in the group you need to check if the pages have the same id's on different servers. If they do, you are more or less out of luck, and you may have to look into creating you own custom code to replicate the access rights between servers.

    Regards

    Thanks Jesper,

    I am copying the access.config file from one server to the the next (same ids) using file replication, but the problem is I need to recycle the app pool before the new permissions take effect. Currently we have to do this manully but I am looking into automating this process as it seems Umbraco does not handle this when updating permissions in a load balanced set up.

    Hi Per

    I am new to courier and have just installed 2.5.4.1.  The access.config for the content permissions still isn't getting copied across and the release notes for recent versions don't show this as being included. Is it still on the agenda or should I be looking at using the custom data resolver work around? On a similar note, are there any plans to include members transfer within Courier in the future?

    Thanks in advance.

    Marie

    Wondering if anyone developed a custom data resolver for the access.config?

    Hi Lee,

    I did once for Media protect. Same structure different files. I can send you the code if you like? Don't know if it's compatible with the latest version of courier and #usaas

    Cheers,

    Richard

    October 4th 2011 was the original post saying this would be fixed in 2.5.1

    Any chance we could get a response!

    Not that this is the only problem in Courier that's been around for 3 years...

    @Ed - I raised an issue on the tracker about it: #COU-59 Transfer public access rights

    I ended up writing my own custom provider/resolver for access.config, but it only works with Umbraco-as-a-Service's version of Courier, not the regular package (for v4/v6). I'm happy to share the code, but I haven't currently got time/capacity to support it.

    Cheers,
    - Lee

    #COU-59 is marked as fixed, but I don't see this functionality in Courier_2.11.2.v7. What am I missing?

    @Erin - best bet is to comment on #COU-59 ticket itself, see what the status is.
