Registries

The Registries tool allows site administrators to update a registry without requiring a server restart. The Registry Manager maintains a set of registries for catching HCL Commerce runtime data. Each registry provides methods to enable adding, deleting, and refreshing of the registry content. These methods are available to the URL interface by using the ListRegistry and the RefreshRegistry commands.

HCL Commerce Version 9.1.2.0 or laterNote: From HCL Commerce version 9.1.2.0 and above, Registry Manager can maintain a set of registries from Administration Console as well as Management Center. However, Management Center is recommended.

If the data in the tables that are associated with a registry is changed, you must refresh that registry for the change to take effect. For example, if a new entry is added to the Struts Configuration , the UrlRegistry has to be refreshed. Otherwise, the HCL Commerce runtime environment does not recognize the new URL.

This table shows the registries available by default in the Management Center. The list of registry components, their usage, and their associated database table, class, or file is as follows.

Registry component Usage Associated database table, class, or file
Access Control Policies Authorizes a group of users to perform a set of actions on a set of resources within HCL Commerce. Unless authorized within one or more access control policies, users have no access to any functions of the system. ACPOLGPPOL, ACPLGPSUBS
Access Control Policy Groups Each HCL Commerce business model has its own set of access control policies. In order to group the sets of policies within the models, policy groups were created. Policies are explicitly assigned to appropriate policy groups and then organizations can subscribe to one or more of these policy groups. ACPOLGPPOL, ACPOLGRP
Access Control Resources The entities that are protected by access control. For example, if the action is a view, the resource to be protected is the command that invoked the view, such as com.ibm.commerce.command.ViewCommand. For access control purposes, resources are grouped into resource groups. ACRESPRIM, ACRESGPRES,ACRESACT, ACRESCGRY, ACRESREL, ACRESGRP, ACRESATREL
