How to create a lot of Store reps automatically?

jb
Hi,

I have to install Store reps for about 50 separate student teams on our Postgres server. What is the best way to build a script to do this. I don’t want to "Store.DbRegistry installDatabaseTables“ t0 times.

Any hints are welcome.

Thank you!

Johannes

Hi Johannes,

I'm sorry to tell you that there isn't a good way to do this.  One thing
you might consider is this:  Postgres can create a new database in the
server using another database as a template.  You might try creating one
database, installing the store schema into it and then using it as a
template to create the others. Please see the Template Databases section
in the online documentation for this.

One issue with a single server having 50 databases on it is that the
current Store setup grants SELECT, INSERT and some UPDATE permissions to
PUBLIC. This means that everyone will have access to all of the
databases. To fix this you would need to remove those privileges from
PUBLIC and GRANT them to a ROLE you create as the group role for the
students using a particular database.  You would then need to grant that
ROLE to all of the users for each database. The code that grants the
permissions can be found in
PostgresPlatform>>grantStoreSpecificPermissionsSQLUsingAccessor: .  This
method is called from Store.Glorp.StoreDescriptorSystem>>createTablesFor:

I hope you find this helpful...

Regards,

Tom Robinson

Dear Johannes,
    if you look at #createInstallScript, you can

a) Use it to create an SQL script and then make 50 copies, changing
whatever needs to be changed for each in a copying script you write.

or

b) Make the first statement in #createInstallScript scriptable so the
connection profile is set up to each of the 50 logins you want in turn,
switch off the
    installScript := true.
line and edit or wrap some dialog lines while running your 50
timesRepeat loop calling it.  (I can email you the dialog-wrapping code
for this if you choose that route - just email me - as we use it for
testing the #createInstallScript method.)

In short, as Tom says, we don't already have a prepared and tested
script but you could certainly write one.

I think we should give it a try.

This is no problem because we have got scripts for all these issues, which we used successfully in the last years. But we installed the Store-tables manually for each team. That is annoying and error-prone.

yes, thank you

… I would like to do it all in Smalltalk, so it was very nice, if you could me the code.

BTW: I couldn’t figure out, what kind of variable installScript is.
