With the recent release of OpenText Content Suite (EP6) the more astute amongst you might have noticed that buried away in the extension pack there is a new light-weight permissions tool that OpenText calls Permissions Explorer.
Permissions Manager recently went through a significant upgrade. The latest release, 16.10 (or 10.10 if you are still running Content Suite 10.5) introduces many changes that have been requested by users. So, I thought I would take a few minutes to highlight some of the more important ones and illustrate how they simplify the life of the average Content Suite user or administrator.
One of the reasons why Smart UI fascinates me is the way Design Patterns are used. As you explore Smart UI code you encounter many of these patterns. But what is a design pattern and why use them? A pattern is a reusable solution that can be applied to commonly occurring problems without the need to code a completely unique solutions each and every time. Design patterns are templates which, when applied, solve commonly occurring design problems through proven solutions.
Fastman is thrilled to announce the latest release of our Permissions Manager for OpenText Content Suite. This release builds upon Permissions Manager’s core access control capabilities and introduces new ways of accessing permissions information through Content Suite 16’s Smart UI.
