In 5e112f26ee2d438b969859eec234e71c71422798/deepamehta:

Adds "Enabled Sharing Modes" config type (#856).

Adds an "Enabled Sharing Modes" configuration on a per-user(name) basis. It allows individual enabling/disabling of the 5 Workspace Sharing Modes. A user can only use the enabled Sharing Modes when creating a workspace.

A migration to add the default configuration to existing Usernames is provided.

Pending: client-side part.

See #856.

In 3074e35e59b58891cbb1646a470f12bf2866f37a/deepamehta:

Add "Enabled Sharing Modes" config props (#856).

There are 5 new config properties in pom.xml resp. config.properties:


These are used as the default values when creating an user account.

Administrators can change these values interactively (using the webclient) on a per-user basis: choose "Configure" on a Username topic.

Note: when the config properties are edited before a fresh DM installation is started for the first time, the values apply also for the initially created "admin" account. "admin" however can login and change its own values interactively.

See #856.
