That should work.

We started work on role based access to the UI. Part of that is an option to “hide” certain
columns for certain roles. This is intended to help sysadmins to just deal with for example
assigning features to targets, and having the software architect just preparing artifacts,
features and distributions.

It might require a bit of work to make that happen though.

ACE uses the Felix Jetty component, that also offers a way to “bridge” to an existing
webserver. There is some documentation about that on the Felix website. I never tried this
with ACE, but I see no reason why that should not work (in fact, I’d consider it a bug,
so we would look into that).

Good luck and if you’re stuck, keep asking questions! :)

Greetings, Marcel
