Subject AW: Access to the Principal List in the ACL Editor
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2015 09:12:18 GMT
Hi Florian,

this is defiantly a weakness of CMIS in the area of DMS/Collaboration. Having a protocol with
a standardized way to access users and groups would help repository vendors a lot  to support
the CMIS protocol. Users and groups are nearly the same important as documents and folders.

Hi Marcel,

CMIS deliberately doesn't provide any user management functionalities. 
This includes listing users. There is no standardized way to get all repository users.
Just getting all repository users is probably also not what you want. 
Assume a repository with 100,000 users. It wouldn't be really helpful to have them all in
the drop-down box.
