Subject Re: [DISCUSSION] Simplification of the create component process
Date Tue, 19 Jul 2016 09:04:54 GMT
Hi Pierre,

Hmmm, that's actually a nice idea. I suggest however we avoid componentId
and just apply the following to the variables:

componentName: mandatory
componentResourceName: optional, defaults to componentName
webappName: optional, defaults to componentName
basePermission: optional, defaults to OFBTOOLS (or whatever defaults were)

This way, You get a real nice and simple command for end-users to create
new components while at the same time allowing more expressiveness. This
becomes similar to the createTenant task which also has everything optional
except the tenantId and tenantName
