There are those times when secured access to corporate repositories is required. Secured access of all corporate repositories can be accomplished by using an e mail address and password scenario for security.
There is no such thing as a duplicate e mail address. The uniqueness of the e mail address makes it the first likely candidate for securing corporate repositories. The password further challenges the user to supply the correct credential to gain access to the corporate repository.
The BCS Register New User component is a working prototype how the non-registered user can gain access to the corporate repository. Even though there are additional data elements in the repository this components focuses only on the e mail address and the password fields. Since the primary key is auto generated it should not be interfered with.
The working prototype and source code can be located by clicking here. The component documentation can be located by clicking here.
The remaining portion of this scenario is the BCS User Login component. The login component challenges the user to supply the correct e mail address and password combination before access to the information is granted.
This scenario allows the user to access only one record and that was the record that was created when the user registered for the first time.
The working prototype and source code for this component can be located by clicking here. The component documentation can be located by clicking here.
These two components will secure corporate repositories at the record level. The usual is the user can only access the information pertinent to themselves only.
