ALTER TABLE job ADD COLUMN owner_id INT;
UPDATE job SET owner_id = creator_id;
The database scripts pg-build-schema.psql and pg-update-1.x-to-5.5.psql have been updated. NOTE: Be careful not to run this part of pg-update-1.x-to-5.5.psql more than once or you risk modifying actual data in your database if you use the OGoHelpDeskRoleName default.
This feature allows a member of the team whose named is defined in the OGoHelpDeskRoleName default to create tasks with an owner other than themselves. Delegated and archived task lists now display tasks based on owner rather than creator. By default the owner is the creator so this has no effect on normal task behaviour. Currently the help desk feature, setting of the owner to another user, is only available via the zOGI API. The modifications to the zOGI API are documented on the Task entity.
If your help desk team name contains spaces be sure to use proper quoting - Defaults write NSGlobalDomain OGoHelpDeskRoleName '"all intranet"' - or you may not get the results you expect. Obviously if you set OGoHelpDeskRoleName to "all intranet" all users will be able to create tasks on behalf of other users.
- Operations from the work queue now time out, so if a callback is lost the work queue doesn't hang.
- Responses to background priority requests are delayed until there is no higher priority work; previously responses to RPC calls where all processed at the same priority regardless of the priority of the original request.
- ContactDetailForm is now an IStorableEntityForm.
from coils.net.handler import HTTPRequestHandler
from coils.net.server import HTTPServer
HTTP_HOST = 'localhost'
HTTP_PORT = 8080
httpd = HTTPServer((HTTP_HOST, HTTP_PORT), HTTPRequestHandler)
Your app will almost certainly provide a custom HTTPRequestHandler to delegate the requests to whatever logic your application provides. In the BaseHTTPRequestHandler a GET request is handed to do_GET, a POST request to do_POST, etc... In our case the object that handles the request will decide what to do based on the request type so we channel all requests to our generic process_request method. process_request looks up the object targeted by the request via marshall_handler() [not shown] and then calls that objects do_request method. The important part for authentication is to catch the exception raised by the object handling the request if that object thinks the request is not authenticated and requires authentication. In this case that is the COILS' AuthenticationException; your application has to provide something equivalent. In order to make the client try again with authentication you need to send a "WWW-Authenticate" header telling the client to use basic authentication and what realm to use. See RFC2617 for details on Basic authentication in general
"""Respond to a request"""
""" find the object mapped to the specified request
The marshall_handler() is a COILS specific things so it isn't
shown in this example. """
handler = self.marshall_handler()
except AuthenticationException, err:
""" An AuthenticationException has an error code of 401
We need to add an authentication header so the client will know
to respond the the failure with the appropriate credentials
TODO: Provide a digest realm once digest authentication is supported
self.send_header('WWW-Authenticate', 'Basic realm="OpenGroupware COILS"')
except CoilsException, err:
# An Coils Exception has an error code of 500
except Exception, err:
# Yikes, something generic web very wrong
"""Respond to a GET request."""
"""Respond to a POST request"""
In order to actually process the authentication request COILS uses an Authenticator object. Our DBAuthenticator object provides basic authentication against accounts with passwords stored directly in the database [verses accounts from LDAP or trusting an external authorization mechanism such as Kerberos]. Explanation for the steps to process a Basic authentication operation have been added to the code example:
from base64 import b64decode
from crypt import crypt
def _authenticate(self, context, request):
Authenticator._authenticate(self, context, request)
authorization = request.headers.get('authorization')
if (authorization == None):
raise AuthenticationException('Authentication Required')
(kind, data) = authorization.split(' ')
if (kind == 'Basic'):
# Authentication method is "Basic"
(username, _, password) = b64decode(data).partition(':')
""" This method provided by the parent class goes to the ORM and
retrieves the account object for the specified username. It
will throw an authentication exception if no such username is
found (user entered it wrong?) or a generic Coils Exception if
multiple objects match the username (that doesn't make sense) -
either will stop the authentication process, but the authentication
exception should reprompt the client to try again. """
account = Authenticator._getLogin(self, username)
secret = account.password
if (secret == crypt(password, secret[:2])):
# Password matches, user is authenticated
self.loginId = account.objectId
self.login = account.login
# Password does not match, authentication failes
raise AuthenticationException('Incorrect username or password')
# Authorization header indicated an authentication type other than BASIC
CoilsException('Unsupported HTTP Authenticated Mech')
See, that easy easy.
For those building from trunk, or currently pulling packages from OBS, there is a new table required as of r2256.
CREATE TABLE ctags (
entity VARCHAR NOT NULL,
ctag INTEGER NOT NULL DEFAULT 0
INSERT INTO ctags (entity) VALUES ('Person');
INSERT INTO ctags (entity) VALUES ('Enterprise');
INSERT INTO ctags (entity) VALUES ('Date');
INSERT INTO ctags (entity) VALUES ('Job');
INSERT INTO ctags (entity) VALUES ('Team');
This is part of adding ctag support to OGo (specifically ZideStore). ctags allow a client to *very* quickly detect if the contents of a collection have changed; such as the /public/Contacts folder. Thus avoiding doing a PROPFIND on the entire folder to determine if a re-sync is needing. ctag support is not complete or working yet, but without this table a server post-r2256 will fails some operations with a database error.
The subversion repository contains an update script for migrating a v5.4 database to v5.5.
While it is admittedly a runt of an RPC solution I've found XML-RPC to be very useful and have used it extensively in both my work on OpenGroupware and other projects.
After a restart SQUID messages show up in the LOCAL4 facility (table: facility_local4) with the priority of "info". Then I created a table to hold the parsed messages:
CREATE TABLE proxy_audit (
Last a trigger on the LOCAL4 log parses incoming messages into this table:
CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION p_proxy_audit() RETURNS trigger AS '
IF (new.hostname = ''hod-a'' AND new.priority = ''info'') THEN
INSERT INTO proxy_audit (timestamp, elapsed, source, status, size,
method, url, domain, identity, mimetype)
VALUES(''epoch''::TIMESTAMP + (split_part(split_part(new.message, '' '', 1), ''.'', 1)::INT) * ''1 second''::INTERVAL,
split_part(TRIM(substring(new.message, strpos(new.message, '' ''))), '' '', 1)::INT,
split_part(TRIM(substring(new.message, strpos(new.message, '' ''))), '' '', 2),
split_part(TRIM(substring(new.message, strpos(new.message, '' ''))), '' '', 3)::VARCHAR(15),
split_part(TRIM(substring(new.message, strpos(new.message, '' ''))), '' '', 4)::INT,
split_part(TRIM(substring(new.message, strpos(new.message, '' ''))), '' '', 5)::VARCHAR(15),
split_part(TRIM(substring(new.message, strpos(new.message, '' ''))), '' '', 6)::VARCHAR(128),
split_part(split_part(TRIM(substring(new.message, strpos(new.message, '' ''))), '' '', 6), ''/'', 3)::VARCHAR(60),
split_part(TRIM(substring(new.message, strpos(new.message, '' ''))), '' '', 7)::VARCHAR(25),
split_part(TRIM(substring(new.message, strpos(new.message, '' ''))), '' '', 9));
' LANGUAGE plpgsql;
CREATE TRIGGER t_proxy_audit AFTER INSERT
ON facility_local4 FOR EACH ROW
EXECUTE PROCEDURE p_proxy_audit()
Once you get allot of data in your table, which happens quickly, you'll probably discover you need an index.
CREATE INDEX proxy_audit_i1 ON proxy_audit(identity, timestamp);
Now looking at a user's web usage is straight-forward. Finally.

But I do wonder if the old advice "Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference" is the most appropriate response to these guys. Just keep on coding and let them rant; code and working solution speak for themselves.
BTW, on a personal note, the Sylvann Inn is a very nice and affordable place.
NOTE: The GroupDAV version 2 specification has not been published yet.
To select database as your default project storage backend:
Defaults write NSGlobalDomain OGoDefaultProjectStorageBackend Database
To select the filesystem as your default project storage backend:
Defaults write NSGlobalDomain OGoDefaultProjectStorageBackend FileSystem
Most people I assume will want "Database". Remember that default values are CASE SENSITIVE!
If you (at least on r2181) attempt to create a project without selecting FileSystem/Database you'll get a popup warning: "Please specify your project storage!" If the default is set then the preferred storage backend is preselected (and can be changed).
Aside: If you use FileSystem projects make sure you have the SkyFSPath default set and that the referred to directory has the correct permissions.
Initial testing on CentOS 5 seems pretty positive, after a:
$ yum install ogo-meta ogo-database-setup
Only glaring bug is that ogo-database-setup doesn't actually populate the database schema so that still needs to be done by hand:
$ cat pg-build-schema.psql | psql -h localhost -U OGo OGo
Then restarting the services gives you [as far as I can tell so far] a fully working OGo install.
P.S. Make sure your getting the most current packages from the repository. mod_ngobjweb in particular should be dated March 4th; with the previous version the web resources (icons, etc...) for the WebUI won't be found at the configured path.

- leaves one with 56 processes after boot and allot less open ports. Some of these make sense (like acpid) but I'm running in a VM so I don't want those either. Would be nice if the default state of CentOS5 was a little cleaner.
Not everything working yet, but getting there.
