Apache OFBiz News - September 2018

Apache OFBiz News September 2018

Welcome to our regular monthly round-up of OFBiz news. This month we have news about the discussions around the location of permission data and accounting AP and AR along with our usual list of features and improvements.

Move accounting AP and AR to the plugin

Currently in OFBiz, accounting AR and AP doesn't contain any logic so instead of keeping them as a part of the functional framework they can be moved to plugins. The main webapp is accounting, AP/AR are a business orientation that can be loaded at demand through plugins.

Please refer to Mail thread and Jira task OFBIZ-10552 for more information.

A big thank you to Nicolas Malin for initiating the discussion and to everyone who contributed.

Move SecurityPermission, SecurityGroup, and SecurityGroupPermission Data to seed data files

Currently, in OFBiz, SecurityPermission, SecurityGroup, and SecurityGroupPermission data are mixed in demo and seed data files. All the 'SecurityPermission' data should be in the seed data files. All the 'SecurityGroup' and 'SecurityGroupPermission' data should be in the demo data files. The 'SecurityGroup' and 'SecurityGroupPermission' data for the groupId 'super' should remain in the seed data files.

Please refer to Mail thread and Jira task OFBIZ-10575 for more information.

A big thank you to Deepak Nigam for initiating the discussion and to everyone who contributed.
