Twiki Access Discussion


As part of forming the High Dimensional Data Analysis Core, we set up the HDDAC web on the twiki. We want the data to be secure, only accessable by faculty and staff that are involved. However, we also want to setup individual pages (topics) for each project and have it viewable by the investigator and a public section with information about the group. So far, the HddacGroup restricts access to the entire web. Using

* Set ALLOWTOPICVIEW = Main.SomeOneNotInTheHddacGroup

on a single topic in the HDDAC web does not give access to that user.

The obvious solution to this problem is not restricting access to the web and specifically protecting individual pages. However, this introduces a much higher possibility of user error leading to unprotected data. -- WillGray


My first idea is to use a wiki with different access control. MoinMoin does something a little different with an acl_before, acl_default, and acl_after configuration. The before always takes effect, you can override default on individual pages, and after is the fallback. This paradigm would definitely work, but I don't know that I trust the Moin authentication, it would require some extra installation and maintainance, and the difference in markup could be confusing. -- WillGray
