Class ProjectKey

All Implemented Interfaces:
AccessControlled, Identifiable

public class ProjectKey extends Key
This class is used to get information about which projects a Shareable item has been shared to.

A project key is immutable and the project/permission combinations cannot be changed once the key has been created. This allows the core to resuse project keys for all items with the same combination of project/permission values without fear that someone else may change the permissions.

Project keys can be used with Shareable items to share them with projects. If the logged in user has set an active project (see SessionControl.setActiveProject(Project)) new items will automatically be shared to that project.

To create a new project key use the ProjectPermissions object and pass the information to the getNewOrExisting(DbControl, ProjectPermissions) method.

Another option is to use the MultiPermissions object which allows you to modifiy the sharing information of a whole bunch of shareable items in one go. The MultiPermissions class takes care of all the cumbersome work of creating new keys and assigning those to the items for you.

    • getNewOrExisting

      public static ProjectKey getNewOrExisting(DbControl dc, ProjectPermissions projectPermissions) throws BaseException
      Create a new or load an existing ProjectKey when you have a combination of project/permission values. If the database contains a project key with the same combination that project key is loaded and returned, otherwise a new project key is created. If no existing key is found, the new key will immediately be saved and committed to the database using another transaction. This ensures that no two keys contains identical permissions.
      dc - The DbControl which will be used for permission checking and database access
      projectPermissions - A ProjectPermissions object holding the permissions
      The ProjectKey item
      BaseException - If there is an error
    • getById

      Get a ProjectKey item when you know the ID.
      dc - The DbControl which will be used for permission checking and database access.
      id - The ID of the item to load
      The ProjectKey item
      ItemNotFoundException - If an item with the specified ID is not found
      PermissionDeniedException - If the logged in user doesn't have Permission.READ permission to the item
      BaseException - If there is another error
    • deleteUnusedProjectKeys

      public static int deleteUnusedProjectKeys() throws BaseException
      Delete all keys that are currently not used by any item. This method is intended to be executed at regular intervals by a cleanup application.
      BaseException - If there is some kind of error.

      public Item getType()
      Description copied from interface: Identifiable
      Get the type of item represented by the object. The returned value is one of the values defined in the Item enumeration.
