Permission to disable OE Replication


Permission to disable OE Replication

This question is not answered

To disconnect a user one has to be a "root" or a process that started the database.

Same permission is needed to shutdown. All is good.

To disable replication ( Source or Target ) no permission is needed. Any one can disable OE replication.

Does that sound right for everyone ?

  • I'd tend to agree; elevated perms should be required.

    There might also be an argument for optionally restricting access by user/group to start/stop Webspeed/Appserver/etc.

    In theory you could change the perms in $DLC/bin, though that change would need to be reapplied on every reinstall and possibly on patch/hotfix.
