We are pleased to announce that Agate 2.0 is now available. Agate is OBiBa’s central user profile server.
Agate now proposes template-based public pages for a better integration with institution's environment. The theme is based on the excellent AdminLTE framework which itself uses Bootstrap toolkit. This gives a modern and clean style to default Agate public pages, see Agate demo .
The public pages are based on templates that can be:
by modifying the global Agate configuration, or by altering settings variables in a template file,
by including new content in the base template files or by defining new pages,
by overridding the base template files.
by altering the stylesheets or by defining a custom build of the AdminLTE distribution.
Data Access Request
This release introduces new and updated Data Access Feasibility templates related to changes in Mica 4.0.
Some features have not been implemented in Agate's public pages: signup with SQL database realm or LDAP/ActiveDirectory realms. The recommended alternative is to use the User Storage Federation feature of Keycloak (which is more advanced than what Agate could ever propose) and to interface Agate and Keycloak using OpenID Connect.
Email templates format has changed, to match the one of the public pages. The template syntax is simpler than the one of the previous format. See Notification Emails documentation for the configuration instructions.
See also Agate documentation for installation and operation instructions. Note that a Docker Image Installation section has been added.
