Security App replaces the Security group of items from the old Admin Interface (i.e. Users, Grous and Roles management) and aggregates also some features from the Tools: Audit (aka Accesses), Permission List and Activation Tools. The security dashboard will be added later.
On the App start, Users, Groups, and Roles tabs will be automatically open.
UI Mockups for Security App
The following two mockups show the main tab featuring the user management and the fourth tab containing the settings. Note that I've left out both the "Groups" and the "Roles" tab. Those should be straight forward, though. All first three tabs will greatly benefit from built-in ContentApp features such as search and sorting.
I've left out the security dashboard for now, as I don't like to place placeholders for features we might not be able to implement. Also, such a security dashboard would require more research and, in general, might be better placed under Pulse.
Also, I've moved the functionality of a previously referenced "Audit" tab to a separate app, which is not described or shown here.
Quick sketch only
The following problems are not tackled here yet:
- To be consistent, we should open the edit form for users, groups and roles in tabs, as we do elsewhere. This might or might not go together well with the "always open" tabs shown below. In particular, we might end up with many open tabs and might have to come up with a way to scroll or shorted tabs.
- I didn't have a look at the actual editing forms for users, groups and roles yet, but I anticipated that they need to be improved as well. Please make a suggestion and let me review it
