Realm Roles Cache property?

#1

In the Crossbar config.ini, realm>roles has a property called “cache” but I don’t see anywhere in the documentation that describes what this does?

Hi Chris,

this is still under construction and may change before we finalize it.

Hmmm, ok. I just got back to Crossbar after working on other stuff for a few months and see a bunch of changes in the sample configs that don’t have any documentation or are different than what is documented including:

  • prefix
  • disclose
  • cache
    With regard to Role Permissions, should I still be using the older wildcard * style URI’s, or the new prefix stuff?

Hi Chris,

We’re working hard on keeping the documentation up to date, and there will be a changelog going forward.

The new handling of publisher and caller disclosure is described here: http://crossbar.io/docs/Publisher-Identification/, http://crossbar.io/docs/Publisher-Identification/.

You’re free to stick with the old-style wildcards - no need to update your configs in that regards (see http://crossbar.io/docs/Pattern-Based-Subscriptions/, http://crossbar.io/docs/Pattern-Based-Registrations/).

Where else in the documentation would you expect these to be mentioned (we’re thinking about slicing the documentation differently, so feedback is highly welcome)?

Regards,

Alex

Hey, I appreciate how hard you guys must be working. Crossbar and Autobahn are amazing, but they are also very feature rich and complex. It is actually a bit of concern for me that you guys trying to do so much all at once. It would be nice if you could freeze new features at some point to give yourselves time to polish the stone and move towards an official, stable release.

Sure, there are gaps in the documentation, but overall it is pretty good in my opinion. Probably one of the biggest points of confusion for me is that you have to understand/reference the developer documentation to understand much of the administration/configuration, and sometimes it requires jumping back and forth. Not really sure what the answer is - documentation, especially for a complex piece of software like Crossbar is always difficult.

In the end, if I don’t understand something I post a question here. I appreciate that the Crossbar team is active on this group and answer questions when you can.

Agree about the jumping back and forth - this was the subject of a discussion just a couple of days ago. Long-term we want to more clearly separate things: a full reference documentation which covers everything in detail, introductions for the admin and the developer, and tutorials.
