When you upload or create an object, you are the owner of the object and the object is registered in the catalog. If you are the owner of the object or if you have Edit permission for the object, you can edit the object details.
Accessing the object details
To access the object details:
- On the Home:Catalog tab, click the object title or click the Show Details button.
- In the Actions list, click Edit Details.
The Specify the following information
When you register an object in the catalog, you must specify a title and a version for the object. The title appears when you view a list of objects or search for objects in the catalog. The version appears when you view the details of the object. By default, the version is 1.0
You can specify optional details about the object and who can use the object.
The description appears when you view a list of objects or search for objects in the catalog.Tags
You set the initial tags for your object. As other users access your objects, they can also set tags on your objects. Permissions
When you register an object in the catalog, the default permission is Public. You can also set the permission to Private or Custom.Table 1. Object permission choices
|Public||Any user can use the object. The object name appears when users list the catalog contents or search the catalog. This is the default permission. |
|Private||Only you can use the object. The object is only visible to you. The object name does not appear when other users view or search the catalog.|
|Custom||Use custom settings to modify the default permissions for specific users or for groups.|
The catalog includes two groups:
Within the groups and users categories, set the type of permission that you want to grant:
- The ANONYMOUS group includes all users who can access the catalog without logging in.
- The REGISTERED group includes all registered users.
You can specify more than one type of permission. For example, you can grant one group View permission, and grant an individual user both Edit and View permissions.
- Edit permission enables groups or individual users to upload a new version of the object and update the details about the object.
- View permission enables groups or individual users to view the details and download the object.
To locate users, you can search for a user ID, username, or group ID.
- Categories: Select the categories to associate with the object. A set of categories is installed with MashupHub.
Tip: If the category does not appear in the list, ask your administrator to add the category. After the administrator adds the category, you can edit the details of the object and apply the category.
- Related entries already in the catalog: Specify the related entries in the catalog for this object. Related entries are objects in the catalog that can be used with the object that you are registering. The related entries appear only on the details for this object. This object does not appear on the related entries list of the other objects unless you or someone else adds this object as a related entry.
- Technical Documentation: Enter the URL to any technical documentation for the object.
- Caching data: (Does not apply to pages, spaces, or widgets.) Specify if the data from the feed should be cached locally, and how long the data should be stored before the cache is refreshed.
- Access Methods: (Choices include Get and Post) Specify the HTTP method that can be used to view the object.
- Policies: (Does not apply to pages, spaces, or widgets.) The Policies section only appears if Feed Policy Processing is enabled by an administrator from the link at Settings -> Edit Feed Policies. Select Enable Rate Limiting to limit the number of requests allowed per minute to protect the corresponding data source from unpredictable or unacceptable loads.
