Define the requestable technologies and resources

Define the requestable technologies and resources in an XML file.

The XML file has the following structure:

  1. Set technology
  2. Define technology
    - Define permissionsets
    - Summarizing permissions for types
  3. Describe resources
    - Define resource root
    - Define resources

 

Example

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

 

<!-- do not change -->

<resourceImport Version="3">

 

<!-- technology definition -->

<technology Id="D54C16F2-42C1-477A-BD20-3285158F68D3" Name="Hardware" IconId="2" Color="#0000be">

<permissionSets>

<permissionSet PermissionSetId="1" Description="['en-US:Buy','de-DE:Kaufen']" />

<permissionSet PermissionSetId="2" Description="['en-US:Lease','de-DE:Leasen']" />

<permissionSet PermissionSetId="3" Description="['en-US:Rent','de-DE:Mieten']" />

</permissionSets>

<types>

<type Id="1" Description="['en-US:Hardware','de-DE:Hardware']" IconId="Container" PermissionSetIds="[]" />

<type Id="3" Description="['en-US:Desktop','de-DE:Desktop']" IconId="Computer" PermissionSetIds="[1,2,3]" />

</resource>

</root>

</technology>

</resourceImport>

 

Set technology

An OpenOrder XML configuration can contain several technologies. In the first line of a technology section, specify the ID, name, and icon.

 

Example

<!-- technology definition -->

<technology Id="D54C16F2-42C1-477A-BD20-3285158F68D3" Name="Hardware" IconId="2">

 

Id

Identifies the technology and must be unique within Open Order. Our recommendation: Use a GUID, e.g. from guidgen.com

 

Name

Display name of the technology.

 

IconId

Displayed icon for the DataOwner configuration (not for GrantMA). See predefined icons.

 

Define permission sets

In the permissionSets section, you define the technology's permission sets.

 

Example

<permissionSets>

<permissionSet PermissionSetId="1" Description="['en-US:Buy','de-DE:Kaufen']" />

<permissionSet PermissionSetId="2" Description="['en-US:Lease','de-DE:Leasen']" />

<permissionSet PermissionSetId="3" Description="['en-US:Rent','de-DE:Mieten']" />

</permissionSets>

 

PermissionSetId

Assign an integer that identifies the entry in the permission set.

 

Description

Optionally provide a description of the permission set.

 

Define types

A type definition of a technology contains 0 to n permissions and an icon.

 

Example

<types>

<type Id="1" Description="['en-US:Hardware','de-DE:Hardware']IconId="Container" PermissionSetIds="[]" />

<type Id="3" Description="['en-US:Desktop','de-DE:Desktop']" IconId="Computer" PermissionSetIds="[1,2,3]" />

</types>

 

Id

Assign an integer that identifies the type.

 

Description

The displayed description of type.

 

IconId

Displayed icon for the DataOwner configuration (not for the GrantMA). See predefined icons.

 

PermissionSetIds

A list of possible permissions for the type. An empty list of PermissionSetIds implies that a resource with the authorization type can not be ordered.

 

Define resources

You define the resources in the data section. A resource node begins with a root entry. You then specify the resources that can be requested.

Define root

With a node entry (root), you define the topmost entry of a resource.

 

Example

<data>

<root Id="6CE9B526-9FFD-46A5-9ED0-36FB4E1303B5" Name="Computer" TypeId="1" Merge="no">

<resource Name="Desktop PCs" TypeId="3" Description="['en-US:Stationary PC','de-DE:Stationäre Arbeitsplatz-PCs']">

<resource Name="Desktop-PC simple" TypeId="3" />

<resource Name="Desktop-PC standard" TypeId="3" />

<resource Name="Desktop-PC customizable" TypeId="3" TemplateID="E3865726-6FDF-489E-A7D5-4ABBA5B2BF83" />

</resource>

</root>

</data>

 

Id

Assign an ID to the top node. The ID must be unique within Open Order. Our recommendation: Use a GUID, e.g. from guidgen.com

 

Name

Assign an display name for the node.

 

TypeId

Specify the type of the top node.

 

Merge

Set the update behavior if you re-upload the XML configuration.

 

Merge="no"

An existing configuration of the same root ID is removed and replaced by the new upload.

 

Merge="yes"

For an existing root ID:

  • new entries (new name) will be added
  • same entries (same name) will be added creating duplicates
  • old entries will be kept

 

Define resource

Within the root, you define the resources in the resource section. You can nest the resources as much as you want.

 

Example

<data>

<root Id="6CE9B526-9FFD-46A5-9ED0-36FB4E1303B5" Name="Computer" TypeId="1" Merge="no">

<resource Name="Desktop PCs" TypeId="3" Description="['en-US:Stationary PC','de-DE:Stationäre Arbeitsplatz-PCs']">

<resource Name="Desktop-PC simple" TypeId="3" />

<resource Name="Desktop-PC standard" TypeId="3" />

<resource Name="Desktop-PC customizable" TypeId="3" TemplateID="E3865726-6FDF-489E-A7D5-4ABBA5B2BF83" />

</resource>

</root>

</data>

 

Name

Displayed name of the resource.

 

TypeId

Mandatory: Assign a type to the resource.

 

Description

Optionally provide a description of the resource.
