The aim of this document is to explain how to configure and deploy OperatorFabric.

1. Deployment

For now OperatorFabric consist of Docker images available either by compiling the project or by using images releases from Dockerhub

Service images are all based on openjdk:8-jre-alpine.

For simple one instance per service deployment, you can find a sample deployment as a docker-compose file here

To run OperatorFabric in development mode, see the development environment documentation .

2. User computer

From the user perspective, OperatorFabric is compatible with recent versions of chrome, edge and firefox and has no specific hardware performance constraints.

Be aware that if you use OperatorFabric in realtime you should prevent user’s computers to go in "sleep mode".

In particular, if you are using edge have a look to github.com/opfab/operatorfabric-core/issues/2754

3. Configuration

The configuration is divided into two parts, the configuration of the business services and the configuration of the UI.

Opfab comes with a default embedded configuration, but certain parameters need to be provided and configured.

The configuration is centralized in the config directory of the GitHub repository. The dev subdirectory contains configurations specific to development environments, while the docker subdirectory contains a specific configuration meant for use in a full docker environment.

3.1. Business service configuration

3.1.1. Shared service configuration

The configuration shared by all services is in a yaml file, you can find an example with the file /config/docker/common.yml.

3.1.1.1. Mongo configuration

We only use URI configuration for mongo through the usage of the operatorfabric.mongodb.uri, it allows us to share the same configuration behavior for simple or cluster configuration and with both spring classic and reactive mongo configuration. See mongo connection string for the complete URI syntax.

This configuration is mandatory (no default configuration is provided).

3.1.2. RabbitMQ

A rabbitMQ component (docker image) is provided in opfab, it has a default configuration.

SECURITY WARNING : The default user/password should be changed if a rabbit port is exposed outside of docker network. To do that, set the environment variables "RABBITMQ_DEFAULT_USER" and "RABBITMQ_DEFAULT_PASS" when starting the image and adjust the following parameters in the common yml config file.

Name

Default

Mandatory

Description

operatorfabric.rabbitmq.host

rabbitmq

no

RabbitMQ host address

operatorfabric.rabbitmq.port

5672

no

RabbitMQ listen port

operatorfabric.rabbitmq.username

guest

no

RabbitMQ username

operatorfabric.rabbitmq.password

guest

no

RabbitMQ password

3.1.2.1. Internal account

The back service cards-reminder ,cards-diffusion and supervision need an internal account to communicate between opfab back services. Therefore, if you intend to utilize any of these services, it is necessary to create an Opfab technical account with ADMIN permissions and configure it

Name

Default

Mandatory

Description

operatorfabric.internalAccount.login

opfab

no

user account used to call Opfab services.

operatorfabric.internalAccount.password

yes

user password to call Opfab services

The services require knowledge of the URL to retrieve the account’s token, and this URL should be configured within operatorfabric.servicesUrls.authToken. A default value, based on OperatorFabric default installation, is set to: "http://web-ui/auth/token".

3.1.2.2. Optional configuration values
Name Default Description

operatorfabric.servicesUrls.users

users:2103

Indicates where the Users service can be reached from the other services.

operatorfabric.servicesUrls.businessconfig

businessconfig:2100

Indicates where the Business service can be reached from the other services.

yes

Cards publication service URL

operatorfabric.servicesUrls.cardsConsultation

cards-consultation:2104

yes

Cards consultation service URL

operatorfabric.servicesUrls.authToken

web-ui/auth/token

Authentication service URL

operatorfabric.userActionLogActivated

3.1.3. Service specific configurations

Each service can have a specific yaml configuration file that can override the default configuration

Examples of configuration of each service can be found under config/docker or config/dev .

3.1.3.1. Businessconfig service

The businessconfig service has this specific property :

Name Default Description

operatorfabric.businessconfig.storage.path

/businessconfig-storage

File path to data storage folder

3.1.3.2. Users service

The user service has these specific properties :

Name Default Description

3.1.3.3. Cards-publication service

The cards publication service has these specific properties :

Name Default Description

operatorfabric.cards-publication.checkAuthenticationForCardSending

true

If false, OperatorFabric will not require user authentication to send or delete a card via endpoint /cards (it does not concern user cards which always need authentication). Be careful when setting the value to false, nginx conf must be adapted for security reasons (see security warning in the reference nginx.conf)

operatorfabric.cards-publication.authorizeToSendCardWithInvalidProcessState

false

If true, OperatorFabric will allow to publish a card referring a not existent process or state

operatorfabric.cards-publication.checkPerimeterForCardSending

3600

For the Rate limiter, this defines the time period (in seconds) during which cardSendingLimitCardCount is applied.

operatorfabric.cards-publication.activateCardSendingLimiter

true

If false, the Rate limiter will be ignored when sending cards.

OperatorFabric Kafka configuration

Next to publishing cards to OperatorFabric using the REST API, OperatorFabric also supports publishing cards via a Kafka Topic. In the default configuration Kafka is disabled. To enable Kafka you need to set the consumer group to the consumer group you assign to the OpFab Kafka consumer. This can be any group-id, as long as it isn’t used by other consumers (unless you explicitly want multiple consumers for the same group).

You can set the group_id by uncommenting the kafka.consumer.group_id in the cards-publication.yml

  kafka:
    consumer:
      group-id: opfab-command

By default, the consumer will consume messages from the opfab topic. See Spring for Apache Kafka for more information on the Spring Kafka implementation.

With the default settings, the Kafka consumer expects a broker running on http//127.0.0.1:9092 and a schema registry on 127.0.0.1:8081.

Operator Fabric is also able to publish response cards to a Kafka topic. The default topic name opfab-response. You can specify which response cards are to be returned via Kafka by setting the external-recipients in the cards-publication yaml file. Instead of setting http:// URL you should set it to kafka:

operatorfabric:
  cards-publication:
    external-recipients:
      recipients:
        - id: "processAction"
          url: "http://localhost:8090/test"
          propagateUserToken: true
        - id: "mykafka"
          url: "kafka:topicname"
          propagateUserToken: false

Note that topicname is a placeholder for now. All response cards are returned via the same Kafka response topic, as specified in the opfab.kafka.topics.response-card field.

Also note enabling Kafka does not disable the REST interface.

3.2. Web UI Configuration

OperatorFabric Web UI service is built on top of a NGINX server. It serves the Angular SPA to browsers and act as a reverse proxy for other services.

3.2.1. NGINX configuration

An external nginx.conf file configures the OperatorFabric Nginx instance named web-ui service. Those files are mounted as docker volumes. There are two of them in OperatorFabric, one in config/dev and one in config/docker.

The one in config/dev is set with permissive CORS rules to enable web development using ng serve within the ui/main project.It’s possible to use ng serve with the one in config/docker version also. To do so use the conf file named nginx-cors-permissive.conf by configuring the /docker-compose.yml with the following line:

- "./nginx-cors-permissive.conf:/etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf"

instead of:

- "./nginx.conf:/etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf"

The line customized in the nginx configuration file must end with à semicolon (';') otherwise the Nginx server will stop immediately

3.2.2. UI properties

The properties lie in the web-ui.json.The following table describes their meaning and how to use them. An example file can be found in the config/docker directory.

It is not necessary to declare OperatorFabric as application because it is added automatically with current release version and rank 0.
For example adding Keycloak application, with 'Keycloak' as name, 1 as rank and '6.0.1' as version should look like:

"about": {
    "keycloak": {
      "name": "Keycloak",
      "rank": 1,
      "version": "6.0.1"
    }

IMPORTANT:

To declare settings parameters, you now need to group all fields under settings: { } For example:

Replace the following invalid settings config

  "settings.replayInterval": 10,
  "settings.replayEnabled": true,
  "settings": {
    "about": {
      "keycloak": {
        "name": "Keycloak",
        "rank": 2,
        "version": "6.0.1"
      },
    }
    "locale": "en",
    "dateTimeFormat": "HH:mm DD/MM/YYYY",
    "dateFormat": "DD/MM/YYYY",
    "styleWhenNightDayModeDesactivated": "NIGHT"
  },

By this valid one :

  "settings": {
    "replayInterval": 10,
    "replayEnabled": true,
    "about": {
      "keycloak": {
        "name": "Keycloak",
        "rank": 2,
        "version": "6.0.1"
      },
    }
    "locale": "en",
    "dateTimeFormat": "HH:mm DD/MM/YYYY",
    "dateFormat": "DD/MM/YYYY",
    "styleWhenNightDayModeDesactivated": "NIGHT"
  },

3.3. Security Configuration

Configure the security concern throughout several files:

  • nginx.conf of the nginx server

  • config/docker/common.yml the common configuration file for back services

  • web-ui.json served by the web-ui service;

3.3.1. Authentication configuration

There are 3 OAuth2 Authentication flows available into OperatorFabric UI:

  • password grant: referred as PASSWORD mode flow;

  • code flow : referred as CODE mode flow;

  • implicit flow: referred as IMPLICIT mode flow.

Alternatively there is also another flow available:

  • none flow: referred as NONE mode flow.

The NONE flow assumes that the application is behind a secured proxy wich handles login and token generation. Calls to backend services will get a valid token added to the headers and the token will not be visible for the (web)client.

3.3.1.1. Nginx Configuration

The UI calls need some mapping to reach the Authentication Provider. In the default OperatorFabric configuration it’s a docker keycloak instance, called keycloak in the project docker-compose.yml files.

There are 3 properties to configure within nginx.conf file:

  • $KeycloakBaseUrl: the base url of keycloak;

  • $OperatorFabricRealm: the realm configure within keycloak instance to provide authentication to OperatorFabric;

  • $ClientPairOFAuthentication: base64 encoded string of the pair of client authentication used by OperatorFabric to log to the Authentication Provider (keycloak). The cient-id and the client-secret are separated by a colon(':').

Example of the docker configuration

# Url of the Authentication provider
    set $KeycloakBaseUrl "http://keycloak:89";
# Realm associated to OperatorFabric within the Authentication provider
    set $OperatorFabricRealm "dev";

# base64 encoded pair of authentication in the form of 'client-id:secret-id'
    set $ClientPairOFAuthentication "b3BmYWItY2xpZW50Om9wZmFiLWtleWNsb2FrLXNlY3JldA==" ;

where b3BmYWItY2xpZW50Om9wZmFiLWtleWNsb2FrLXNlY3JldA== is the base64 encoded string of opfab-client:opfab-keycloak-secret with opfab-client as client-id and opfab-keycloak-secret its client secret.

3.3.1.2. Configuration file common.yml

name

default

mandatory?

Description

operatorfabric.security.oauth2.resourceserver.jwt.jwk-set-uri

null

yes

The url providing the certificate used to verify the jwt signature

operatorfabric.security.jwt.loginClaim

sub

no

Jwt claim used for user login

example of common.yml

spring:
  security:
    oauth2:
      resourceserver:
        jwt:
          jwk-set-uri:  http://localhost:89/auth/realms/dev/protocol/openid-connect/certs
3.3.1.3. Configuration file web-ui.json

Nginx web server serves this file. OperatorFabric creates and uses a custom Docker image containing an Nginx server with a docker volume containing this file. The docker-compose.yml contains an example of it. The path in the image to it is /usr/share/nginx/html/opfab/web-ui.json.

For OAuth2 security concerns into this file, there are two ways to configure it, based on the Oauth2 chosen flow. There are several common properties:

  • security.logout-url: url used when a user is logged out of the UI;

  • security.oauth2.flow.delegate-url: url used to connect to the Authentication provider;

  • security.oauth2.flow.mode: technical way to be authenticated by the Autentication provider.

  • security.oauth2.client-id : the OAuth2 client ID

  • security.jwt.login-claim : the field in the token that will be used to identify your account (default value : sub)

3.3.1.4. OAuth2 PASSWORD or CODE Flows

These two modes share the same way of declaring the delegate URL. This has to be defined in web-ui.json by setting :

  • security.oauth2.flow.mode to PASSWORD or CODE;

  • security.oauth2.flow.delegate-url with the URL of the OAuth2 leading to the protocol used for authentication.

Example of Configuration For CODE Flow
{
    "security": {
      "jwt": {
        "login-claim": "preferred_username"
      },
      "oauth2": {
        "client-id": "OAUTHCLIENTID",
        "flow": {
          "mode": "CODE",
          "delegate-url": "http://localhost:89/auth/realms/dev/protocol/openid-connect/auth?response_type=code&client_id=opfab-client"
        }
      },
      "logout-url":"http://localhost:89/auth/realms/dev/protocol/openid-connect/logout?redirect_uri=http://localhost:2002/"
  }
}

Within the delegate-url property dev is the keycloak client realm of OperatorFabric. For keycloak instance used for development purposes, this delegate-url correspond to the realm under which the client opfab-client is registred. Here, the client-id value is opfab-client which is define as client under the realm named dev on the dev keycloak instance.

3.3.1.5. OAuth2 IMPLICIT Flow

It had its own way of configuration. To enable IMPLICIT Flow authentication the following properties need to be set in web-ui.json:

  • security.oauth2.flow.mode to IMPLICIT;

  • security.oauth2.flow.delegate-url with the URL of the OAuth2 leading to the .well-known/openid-configuration end-point used for authentication configuration.

Example of configuration for IMPLICIT Flow
{
  "security": {
    "jwt": {
        "login-claim": "preferred_username"
      },
    "oauth2": {
      "client-id": "OAUTHCLIENTID",
      "flow": {
        "mode": "IMPLICIT",
        "delegate-url": "http://localhost:89/auth/realms/dev"
      }
    },
    "logout-url":"http://localhost:89/auth/realms/dev/protocol/openid-connect/logout?redirect_uri=http://localhost:2002/",
  }
}

Within the delegate-url property dev is the keycloak client realm of OperatorFabric. For keycloak instance used for development purposes, this delegate-url correspond to the realm under which the client opfab-client is registred. The url look up by the implicit ui mechanism is localhost:89/auth/realms/dev/.well-known/openid-configuration.

3.3.1.6. NONE Flow

The configuration for the NONE flow is a bit different because the token isn’t handled/visible in the front-end.

Nginx

The following variables can be removed:

  • $KeycloakBaseUrl

  • $OperatorFabricRealm

  • $ClientPairOFAuthentication

The locations for handling tokens can be edited to return a 401 by default. If one of these locations is called, the token generated by the secured proxy has expired.

location /auth/check_token {
  return 401;
}
location /auth/token {
  return 401;
}
location /auth/code/ {
  return 401;
}
Web-ui.json

Set the security.oauth2.flow.mode to NONE;

Set the security.oauth2.client-id to Your Oauth client ID;

Use the security.jwt.login-claim to select value from the token will be used to identify your account. In this example preferred_username is used;

Settings that are not required are:

  • delegate-url

Example of configuration
{
    "security": {
      "jwt": {
        "login-claim": "preferred_username"
      },
      "oauth2": {
        "client-id": "OAUTHCLIENTID",
        "flow": {
          "mode": "NONE"
        }
      },
      "logout-url":"http://my-secured-proxy/OAUTHTENANTID/oauth2/logout?client_id=OAUTHCLIENTID&post_logout_redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Flocalhost:2002%2Fui%2Fui/"
    }
 }

3.3.2. User creation

If a user exists in the authentication system but not in Opfab, their profile will be automatically created upon their initial login. The user’s name and family name will be extracted from the authentication token.

name default mandatory? Description

operatorfabric.security.jwt.givenNameClaim

given-name

no

Jwt claim to use to get the user’s name

operatorfabric.security.jwt.familyName-claim

family-name

no

Jwt claim to used to get the user’s family name

3.3.3. Alternative way to manage groups (and/or entities)

By default, OperatorFabric manages groups (and/or entities) through the user's collection in the database. Another mode can be defined, the JWT mode. The groups (and/or entities) come from the authentication token.

To activate this option , you need to set some parameter in the common.yml file :

name default mandatory? Description

operatorfabric.security.jwt.groups.mode

OPERATOR_FABRIC

no

Set the group mode, possible values JWT or OPERATOR_FABRIC

operatorfabric.security.jwt.groups.rolesClaim.rolesClaimStandard.path

no

operatorfabric.security.jwt.groups.rolesClaim.rolesClaimStandardArray.path

no

path in the JWT to retrieve the claim that defines an array of groups

operatorfabric.security.jwt.groups.rolesClaim.rolesClaimStandardList.path

no

path in the JWT to retrieve the claim that defines a list of group

no

set the separator value of the list of group

operatorfabric.security.jwt.groups.rolesClaim.rolesClaimCheckExistPath.path

no

path in the JWT to check if that path does exist, if it does, use the roleValue as a group

operatorfabric.security.jwt.groups.rolesClaim.rolesClaimCheckExistPath.roleValue

no

set the value of the group if the path exists

operatorfabric.security.jwt.entitiesIdClaim

no

set the name of the field in the token

operatorfabric.security.jwt.gettingEntitiesFromToken

no

boolean indicating if you want the entities of the user to come from the token and not mongoDB (possible values : true/false)

application.yml

operatorfabric:
  security:
    jwt:
      entitiesIdClaim: entitiesId
      gettingEntitiesFromToken: true
      groups:
        mode: JWT # value possible JWT | OPERATOR_FABRIC
        rolesClaim:
          rolesClaimStandard:
            - path: "ATTR1"
            - path: "ATTR2"
          rolesClaimStandardArray:
            - path: "resource_access/opfab-client/roles"
          rolesClaimStandardList:
            - path: "roleFieldList"
              separator: ";"
          rolesClaimCheckExistPath:
            - path: "resource_access/AAA"
              roleValue: "roleAAA"
            - path: "resource_access/BBB"
              roleValue: "roleBBB"

        "manage-account",
        "manage-account-links",
        "view-profile"
      ]
    }
  },
  "scope": "openid ATTR2 email ATTR1 profile roleFieldList",
  "email_verified": false,
  "name": "example_firtstname example_lastname",
  "ATTR2": "roleATTR2",
  "ATTR1": "roleATTR1",
  "preferred_username": "example_user",
  "given_name": "example_firtstname",
  "entitiesId": "ENTITY1",
  "family_name": "example_lastname",
  "email": "example_user@mail.com",
  "roleFieldList": "roleA;roleB;roleC"
}

As the result, the group will be [ATTR1, ATTR2, roleA, roleB, roleC, USER, roleBBB, roleAAA]

3.3.4. Adding certification authorities or certificates to the Java keystore

If you’re using certificates (for example for Keycloak) that are not from a certification authority trusted by the JVM, this will cause errors such as this one:

Missing certificate error message
Caused by: sun.security.validator. ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to
requested target

at sun.security.validator.PKIXValidator.doBuild(PKIXValidator.java:392)
... 100 common frames omitted

If that is the case, you can pass the additional authorities or certificates that you use to the containers at runtime.

To do so, put the relevant files (*.der files for example) under src/main/docker/certificates.

  1. This directory should only contain the files to be added to the keystore.

  2. The files can be nested inside directories.

  3. Each certificate will be added with its filename as alias. For example, the certificate in file mycertificate.der will be added under alias mycertificate. As a consequence, filenames should be unique or it will cause an error.

  4. If you need to add or remove certificates while the container is already running, the container will have to be restarted for the changes to be taken into account.

If you would like certificates to be sourced from a different location, replace the volumes declarations in the deploy docker-compose.yml file with the selected location:

volumes:
 - "path/to/my/selected/location:/certificates_to_add"

instead of

volumes:
 - "../../../../src/main/docker/certificates:/certificates_to_add"
The steps described here assume you’re running OperatorFabric in docker mode using the deploy docker-compose, but they can be adapted for single container deployments and development mode.

If you want to check that the certificates were correctly added, you can do so with the following steps:

  1. Open a bash shell in the container you want to check

    docker exec -it deploy_businessconfig_1 bash
  2. Run the following command

    $JAVA_HOME/bin/keytool -list -v -keystore /tmp/cacerts -storepass changeit

You can also look at the default list of authorities and certificates trusted by the JVM with this command:

$JAVA_HOME/bin/keytool -list -v -keystore $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security/cacerts -storepass changeit

3.3.5. IP address control

For each user it is possible to configure a list of authorized source ip addresses by setting the authorizedIPAddresses field in User object.

4. Monitoring

Operator Fabric provides end points for monitoring via prometheus. The monitoring is available for the five following services: user, businessconfig, cards-consultation, cards-publication and external-devices. To enable the monitoring , you need to open the endpoint by adding in the common yml configuration file :

management:
  endpoints:
    web:
      exposure:
        include: '*'

You can start a test prometheus instance via config/monitoring/startPrometheus.sh , the monitoring will be accessible on localhost:9090/

It is also possible to monitor the health status of cards-external-diffusion, cards-reminder and supervisor services by making an HTTP GET request to the "/healthcheck" endpoint exposed by each service. The healthcheck endpoint will return a HTTP 200 status code if the service is up and running.

5. Logging Administration

5.1. Logging configuration

Log levels can be defined either globally in the YAML configuration file or individually for each service. You will find a commented configuration for each service within the directory config/docker.

Services are designed to write logs to two primary destinations: standard output and log files within the Docker containers.

If you want to save logs you can redirect the standard output to a file.

Or you can also map the Docker directory /var/log/opfab to a location on the host machine for each business services, keeping logs outside of the container.

For the web-ui service’s logs are in the /var/log/nginx directory. You can map this directory to the host to preserve those logs.

5.2. Runtime configuration

Operator Fabric includes the ability to view and configure the log levels at runtime through APIs for most of the business services (the service supervisor , cards-external-diffusion and cards-reminder does not provide this feature). It is possible to configure and view an individual logger configuration, which is made up of both the explicitly configured logging level as well as the effective logging level given to it by the logging framework. These levels can be one of:

  • TRACE

  • DEBUG

  • INFO

  • WARN

  • ERROR

  • FATAL

Querying and setting logging levels is restricted to administrators.

To view the configured logging level for a given logger it is possible to send a GET request to the '/actuator/logger' URI as follows:

curl http://<server>:<port>/actuator/loggers/${logger} -H "Authorization: Bearer ${token}" -H "Content-type:application/json"

where ${token} is a valid OAuth2 JWT for a user with administration privileges and ${logger} is the logger (ex: org.opfab)

The response will be a json object like the following:

{
  "configuredLevel" : "INFO",
  "effectiveLevel" : "INFO"
}

To get the log level for ROOT logger of a service it is possible to call the provided script src/test/resources/logs/getLogs.sh as follows: getLogs.sh <server:port> <user> <opfab_url>. For example to get the current log level for "card-publication" service execute: getLogs.sh localhost:2102 admin localhost

To configure a given logger, POST a json entity to the '/actuator/logger' URI, as follows:

curl -i -X POST http://<server>:<port>/actuator/loggers/${logger} -H "Authorization: Bearer ${token}" -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"configuredLevel": "DEBUG"}'

To “reset” the specific level of the logger (and use the default configuration instead) it is possible to pass a value of null as the configuredLevel.

To set the log level for ROOT logger of a service it is possible to call the provided script src/test/resources/logs/setLogs.sh as follows: setLogs.sh <server:port> <log_level> <user> <opfab_url>. For example to set the log level to DEBUG for "card-publication" service execute: setLogs.sh localhost:2102 DEBUG admin localhost

6. Users, Groups and Entities Administration

A new operator call John Doe, who has OAuth granted right to connect to current OperatorFabric instance, need to receive cards within current OperatorFabric instance. As a user of OperatorFabric, he needs to be added to the system with a login (john-doe-operator), his firstName (John) and his lastName (Doe). As there is no Administration GUI for the moment, it must be performed through command line, as detailed in the Users API.

6.1. Users

6.1.1. List all users

First of all, list the users (who are the recipients in OperatorFabric) of the system with the following commands:

Httpie

http http://localhost:2103/users "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/type"

cURL

curl -v http://localhost:2103/users -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/type"

response

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

[
    {
        "firstName": null,
        "groups": [

6.1.2. Create a new User

We are sure that no John-doe-operator exists in our OperatorFabric instance. We can add him in our OperatorFabric instance using the following command use httpie:

echo '{"login":"john-doe-operator","firstName":"Jahne","lastName":"Doe"}' | http POST http://localhost:2103/users "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/json"

Or here cURL:

curl -X POST http://localhost:2103/users -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/json" --data '{"login":"john-doe-operator","firstName":"Jahne","lastName":"Doe"}'

response

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

{
    "firstName": "Jahne",
    "lastName": "Doe",
    "login": "john-doe-operator"
}

6.1.3. Fetch user details

It’s always a good thing to verify if all the information has been correctly recorded in the system:

with httpie:

http -b http://localhost:2103/users/john-doe-operator "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/json"

or with cURL:

curl http://localhost:2103/users/john-doe-operator -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/json"

response

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

{
    "firstName": "Jahne",
    "groups": [],
    "entities": [],
    "lastName": "Doe",
    "login": "john-doe-operator"
}

6.1.4. Update user details

As shown by this result, the firstName of the new operator has been misspelled. We need to update the existing user with john-doe-operator login. To correct this mistake, the following commands can be used:

with httpie:

echo '{"login":"john-doe-operator","lastName":"Doe","firstName":"John"}' | http PUT http://localhost:2103/users/john-doe-operator "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/json"

or with cURL:

curl -X PUT http://localhost:2103/users/john-doe-operator -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/json" --data '{"login":"john-doe-operator","firstName":"John","lastName":"Doe"}'

response

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

{
    "firstName": "John",
    "lastName": "Doe",
    "login": "john-doe-operator"
}

6.2. Groups/Entities

All the commands below :

  • List groups

  • Create a new group

  • Fetch details of a given group

  • Update details of a group

  • Add a user to a group

  • Remove a user from a group

are available for both groups and entities. In order not to overload the documentation, we will only detail group endpoints.

6.2.1. List groups (or entities)

This operator is the first member of a new group operator called the OPERATORS, which doesn’t exist for the moment in the system. As shown when we list the groups existing in the server.

Httpie

http http://localhost:2103/groups "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/type"

cURL

curl http://localhost:2103/groups -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/json"

response

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

[
    {
        "description": "The admin group",
        "name": "ADMIN group",
        "id": "ADMIN"
    },
    {
        "description": "RTE TSO Group",
        "name": "RTE group",
        "id": "RTE"
    },
    {
        "description": "ELIA TSO group",
        "name": "ELIA group",
        "id": "ELIA"
    },
    {
        "description": "CORESO Group",
        "name": "CORESO group",
        "id": "CORESO"
    },
    {
        "description": "Dispatcher Group",
        "name": "Dispatcher",
        "id": "Dispatcher"
    },
    {
        "description": "Planner Group",
        "name": "Planner",
        "id": "Planner"
    },
    {
        "description": "ReadOnly Group",
        "name": "ReadOnly",
        "id": "ReadOnly"
    }
]

6.2.2. Create a new group (or entity)

Firstly, the group called OPERATORS has to be added to the system using the following command:

using httpie:

echo '{"id":"OPERATORS","decription":"This is the brand new group of operator"}' | http POST http://localhost:2103/groups "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/json"

using cURL:

curl -X POST http://localhost:2103/groups -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/json" --data '{"id":"OPERATORS","decription":"This is the brand new group of operator"}'

response

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

{
    "perimeters": [],
    "description": null,
    "name": null,
    "id": "OPERATORS"
}

6.2.3. Fetch details of a given group (or entity)

The result returned seems strange, to verify if it’s the correct answer by displaying the details of the group called OPERATORS, use the following command:

using httpie:

http http://localhost:2103/groups/OPERATORS "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/json"

using cURL:

curl http://localhost:2103/groups/OPERATORS -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/json"

response

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

{
    "perimeters": [],
    "description": null,
    "name": null,
    "id": "OPERATORS"
}

6.2.4. Update details of a group (or entity)

The description is really null. After verification, in our first command used to create the group, the attribute for the description is misspelled. Using the following command to update the group with the correct spelling, the new group of operator gets a proper description:

with httpie:

echo '{"id":"OPERATORS","description":"This is the brand-new group of operator"}' | http -b PUT http://localhost:2103/groups/OPERATORS "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/json"

with cURL:

curl -X PUT http://localhost:2103/groups/OPERATORS -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/json" --data '{"id":"OPERATORS","description":"This is the brand-new group of operator"}'

response

{
    "perimeters": []
    "description": "This is the brand-new group of operator",
    "name": null,
    "id": "OPERATORS"
}

6.2.5. Add a user to a group (or entity)

As both new group and new user are correct it’s time to make the user a member of the group . To achieve this, use the following command:

with httpie:

echo '["john-doe-operator"]' | http PATCH http://localhost:2103/groups/OPERATORS/users "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/json"

with cURL:

curl -X PATCH http://localhost:2103/groups/OPERATORS/users -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/json" --data '["john-doe-operator"]'

response

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Let’s verify that the changes are correctly recorded by fetching the :

http http://localhost:2103/users/john-doe-operator "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/json"

with cURL

curl http://localhost:2103/users/john-doe-operator -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/json"

response

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

{
    "firstName": "John",
    "groups": ["OPERATORS"],
    "entities": [],
    "lastName": "Doe",
    "login": "john-doe-operator"
}

It’s now possible to send cards either specifically to john-doe-operator or more generally to the OPERATORS group.

6.2.6. Remove a user from a group (or entity)

When John Doe is no longer in charge of hypervising cards for OPERATORS group, this group has to be removed from his login by using the following command:

with httpie:

http DELETE http://localhost:2103/groups/OPERATORS/users/john-doe-operator "Authorization:Bearer $token"

with cURL:

curl -X DELETE -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" http://localhost:2103/groups/OPERATORS/users/john-doe-operator

response

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

{
	"login":"john-doe-operator","
	firstName":"John",
	"lastName":"Doe",
	"groups":[],
    "entities":[]
}

A last command to verify that OPERATORS is no longer linked to john-doe-operator:

with httpie:

http http://localhost:2103/users/john-doe-operator "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/json"

with cURL:

curl http://localhost:2103/users/john-doe-operator -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/json"

response

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

{
    "firstName": "John",
    "groups": [],
    "entities": [],
    "lastName": "Doe",
    "login": "john-doe-operator"

}

6.2.7. Entity parents

Entities have a 'parents' attribute instead of a 'perimeters' one. This attribute is a string array. Each element of the array is the id of another Entity. When adding or patching an Entity into the system, operatorFabric performs a cycle detection. On a positive cycle detection cancels the addition or the patch.

6.2.7.1. Add a new Entity without a cycle in the parent declaration

using httpie:

echo '{"id":"NEW_ENTITY","name":"Last New Entity","description":"This is the last new entity","parents": ["ENTITY1_FR"]}' \
| http POST http://localhost:2103/entities "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/json"

using cURL:

curl http://localhost:2103/entities -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/json" \
--data '{"id":"NEW_ENTITY","name":"Last New Entity","description":"This is the last new entity","parents": ["ENTITY1_FR"]}'

response

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

{
    "id": "NEW_ENTITY",
    "parents": ["ENTITY1_FR"],
    "name": "Last New Entity",
    "description":"This is the last new entity",
    "labels":[]
}
6.2.7.2. Add a new Entity with a cycle

For simplicity, in this example the new entity will declare itself as a parent. This auto-referencing triggers a cycle detection.

using httpie:

echo '{"id":"NEW_ENTITY","name":"Last New Entity","description":"This is the last new entity","parents": ["NEW_ENTITY"]}' | http POST http://localhost:2103/entities "Authorization:Bearer $token" "Content-Type:application/json"

using cURL:

curl http://localhost:2103/entities -H "Authorization:Bearer $token" -H "Content-Type:application/json" --data '{"id":"NEW_ENTITY","name":"Last New Entity","description":"This is the last new entity","parents": ["NEW_ENTITY"]}'

response

{
    "status":"BAD_REQUEST",
    "message":"A cycle has been detected: NEW_ENTITY->NEW_ENTITY"
}

with a 400 as http status return.

8. Rate limiter for card sendings

External publishers are monitored by this module which limits how many cards they can send cardSendingLimitCardCount in a period of time cardSendingLimitPeriod . This is to avoid potential overloading due to external apps stuck in a card sending loop. It can be disabled / enabled with ifndef::single-page-doc[activateCardSendingLimiter]. It also possible to reset the data of the limiter by calling the API through the "/cards/rateLimiter" endpoint (e.g. POST "$url:2102/cards/rateLimiter" -H "Authorization:Bearer $token").

9. Restricted operations (administration)

Some operations are restricted to users with the ADMIN role, either because they are administration operations with the potential to impact the OperatorFabric instance as a whole, or because they give access to information that should be private to a user.

Below is a quick recap of these restricted operations.

Users Service

Any action (read, create/update or delete) regarding a single user’s data (their personal info such as their first and last name, as well as their settings) can be performed either by the user in question or by a user with the ADMIN role.

Any action on a list of users or on the groups (or entities) (if authorization is managed in OperatorFabric) can only be performed by a user with the ADMIN role.

Businessconfig Service

Any write (create, update or delete) action on bundles can only be performed by a user with the ADMIN role. As such, administrators are responsible for the quality and security of the provided bundles. In particular, as it is possible to use scripts in templates, they should perform a security check to make sure that there is no XSS risk.

The ADMIN role doesn’t grant any special privileges when it comes to card consultation (be they current or archived), so a user with the ADMIN role will only see cards that have been addressed to them (or to one of their groups (or entities)), just like any other user.
