The Text repository type allows the group server to retrieve custom user and group information stored in text files. In addition to the parameters that apply to all repository types, you can configure the parameters in this section.
If you want to set up multiple text repositories, you can also configure these parameters in the
[Default] section (if you also have other repository types set up, they are not affected by these settings).
HPE recommends populating an empty repository using the
Import action, rather than configuring a text repository. The
import action immediately populates the repository.
The Text repository type can be configured in one of two ways:
Incrementally. When GroupServerIncremental is set to
true, the group server only retrieves users and groups that have been modified since it last cycled. In this case, the text files from which the group server retrieves security information must be stored in the directory specified in the parameter TextDirectory. And each file must have a filename in the format
RepositoryName_Index, where the
RepositoryName is the section in the configuration file, and the
Index increases by 1 from 0 (zero).
The Group Server stores the index of the last processed file in the file
RepositoryName_LastProcessed. The files can be deleted after processing by setting the parameter TextDeleteProcessed to
true. Nested groups can be processed by setting the parameter GroupServerNestedGroups to
Completely. When GroupServerIncremental is set to
false, the group server retrieves all users and groups every time it cycles.
In this case, the text file from which the group server retrieves security information must be specified in the parameter TextFile. This file is read fully during each cycle of the fetch. Nested groups can be processed by the parameter GroupServerNestedGroups to
For information on the format of the text files, see the
TextGS_README.txt file. This readme is installed to the
InstallationDir\TextDir directory when you install the Omni Group Server with the Text component enabled.
