This file contains the actions and roles required. The actions are linked directly to the launcher.xml. The 'role' describes which users are have access to which actions. For example a forecaster might have access to the explorer only, while a system administrator may have access to the admin interface and configuration management interfaces. For an example file click here. This file links actionIds to user roles.

The following actionIds are allowed:

  • LaunchFewsClient,
  • LaunchConfigManager,
  • LaunchAdminInterface,
  • Upload OnLine

In the example, the launcher is setup like the following:

  • The role of Forecaster has the privileges to run the fews client (LaunchFewsClient).
  • The role of ConfigManager is allowed to run fews, to run the configmanager, and upload files (LaunchFewsClient, LaunchConfigManager, Upload OnLine).
  • The SystemManager is allowed what the configmanager can do as well as login to the admin interface (LaunchFewsClient, LaunchConfigManager, LaunchAdminInterface, Upload OnLine).

You will notice similarities between the attributes of the JavaAppType and those found in the .jpif file in the bin directory. An example file can be seen here
