Introduction

A graphical user interface was implemented in ≥ 2.1 for managing the assignment of role and data authorizations to users and groups of users. This interface replaces the existing mechanism provided by the roles.xml and the authorizations.xml files. You can find out more in:

This management interface relies on a schema hosted on a CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL instance to store the roles/data authorizations. This schema is called cast_dashboards by default and will be created on first startup of the web application. This schema is defined using two files:

2.x ZIPs
<unpacked_zip>\configurations\application.properties
<unpacked_zip>\configurations\schema.sql

2.x WARs
CATALINA_HOME\webapps\<deployed_war>\WEB-INF\classes\application.properties
CATALINA_HOME\webapps\<deployed_war>\WEB-INF\classes\schema.sql

If you want to change the name of the schema, for example if you want to host one roles/authorizations schema for each deployed dashboard on the same CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL instance (due to requiring different roles/authorizations in each dashboard) you can do so as explained below.

Step 1 - Update application.properties

In the deployed dashboard, locate the following file:

2.x WARs:
CATALINA_HOME\webapps\<deployed_war>\WEB-INF\classes\application.properties

2.x ZIPs:
<unpacked_zip>\configurations\application.properties

Locate the following section:

#datasource configuration for user management
spring.datasource.url=jdbc:postgresql://localhost:2282/postgres?currentSchema=cast_dashboards
spring.datasource.platform=postgres
spring.datasource.username=operator
spring.datasource.password=CastAIP
spring.datasource.initialization-mode=always
spring.datasource.driver-class-name=org.postgresql.Driver
spring.liquibase.change-log=classpath:db/changelog/db.changelog-master.xml
spring.liquibase.default-schema=cast_dashboards
spring.liquibase.enabled=true

Change the following lines to modify the schema name:

  • spring.datasource.url=jdbc:postgresql://localhost:2282/postgres?currentSchema=cast_dashboards
  • spring.liquibase.default-schema=cast_dashboards

For example to call your schema "user_management":

#datasource configuration for user management
spring.datasource.url=jdbc:postgresql://localhost:2282/postgres?currentSchema=user_management
spring.datasource.platform=postgres
spring.datasource.username=operator
spring.datasource.password=CastAIP
spring.datasource.initialization-mode=always
spring.datasource.driver-class-name=org.postgresql.Driver
spring.liquibase.change-log=classpath:db/changelog/db.changelog-master.xml
spring.liquibase.default-schema=user_management
spring.liquibase.enabled=true

Save the file before proceeding.

Step 2 - Update schema.sql

In the deployed dashboard, locate the following file:

2.x WARs:
CATALINA_HOME\webapps\<deployed_war>\WEB-INF\classes\schema.sql

2.x ZIPs:
<unpacked_zip>\configurations\schema.sql

Locate the following line:

CREATE SCHEMA IF NOT EXISTS cast_dashboards;

Change the name of the schema to match what you have entered in the application.properties file, for example to call your schema "user_management":

CREATE SCHEMA IF NOT EXISTS user_management;

Save the file before proceeding.

Step 3 - Restart the web application

Restart the web application so that changes are taken into account. The new schema will be created on the target CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL isntance.
