Starting with 2017.1, InterSystems is adding Ubuntu (64-bit) as a third linux server platform. Prior to 2017.1 Ubuntu was already available as a development platform and customers could use InterSystems distributions build for SUSE to run on Ubuntu. As a result there are a few license key implications for 64-bit linux versions starting with Caché and Ensemble 2017.1:

a) Customers using RedHat will observe no changes

b) Customers using InterSystems products(1) for SUSE on SUSE will need new license keys (no charge)

c) Customers using InterSystems products(1) for SUSE on Ubuntu will need new license keys (free of charge for 12 month(2))

(1) Caché, Ensemble, HealthShare, and TrakCare

(2) Starting with the Release of 2017.1

Starting with the Field Test of 2017.1 InterSystems products will include Feature Tracker. It is enabled by default during the Field Test and is explained more fully in the product documentation included below. Information collected by Feature Tracker is limited to technology usage information and instance identification.  This tool has been carefully crafted to not transmit sensitive information related to customer applications or data. It is important to note that sharing of information about your system is under your control and the information being shared with InterSystems is always visible to you.

With this post we would like to solicit your thoughts on the Feature Tracker in general and its default setting of “on”

Starting with 2017.1, InterSystems has moved macOS from being a server platform to a development platform. 2017.1 will only support macOS 10.12 and will no longer be available as dmg kits.

Verification of macOS 10.12 has not been completed at this time and Field Test kits for this platform are not yet available.

Question:

How can I create, change etc. Security entities (like Users and Roles) programmatically?

Answer:

You can use the Security package classes in the %SYS namespace. For example Security.Roles or Security.Users.

Of course in order to perform these actions the user will require the needed authorization.

Here's a small example using Security.Roles

I need to perform additional checks before Cache user logins (let's say in a terminal for simplicity) and allow access only to those, who passed them. How do I do it?

After reading about delegated authentication in docs I created this ZAUTHENTICATE routine
