ClientOperations Class

Provides a simple interface for updating the MFAdmin configuration interface. Instances of this class are created by AdminConfigurationManagerBase for node requests that can return proper responses. The appropriate node methods or custom command methods are then passed the instance so the MFAdmin interface can be informed of any changes made on the server. Each client operation method generates one or more directives that are then passed back to MFAdmin at the end of the request.

Object    ClientOperations


ClientOperations Constructor.


Context The context of the request that this interface will provide a response to.
DefaultNodeLocation The configuration domain node this response is for.
Directives The list of directives to be sent to the client as the response.
Manager The manager responsible for the nodes that can be modified through this interface.


AddSubNode Inserts a node into the client underneath the parent node. This will have no effect if the paren't nodes have not yet loaded.
AuthenticateUser Instructs MFAdmin to authenticate a user.
GetResponse Provides a command response with the applicable client operations that have been called.
LoadConfiguration Sets the configuration text for a domain in the client. Be wary! This can overwrite unsaved changes the user has made.
RefreshDashboard Invalidates a node's dashboard, forcing it to refresh if it is currently viewed, or the next time a user tries to view it.
RefreshMetadataCache Forces the MFAdmin configurator to refresh it's metadata structure cache. It is wise to call this if a command has changes the metaddata structure of the vault. (e.g. Add, remove, update object types, classes, property defs, workflows, etc...). This can take significant time on the client, so use this sparingly!
ReloadDomain Completely reloads a domain in the MFAdmin configurator, but only if the parent domain has been loaded. Use this carefully, as it can be very destructive, and users can lose unsaved changes. Consider UpdateDomain instead, to try and make updates in place.
RemoveNode Removes a node from the client.
RevalidateDomain Forces a domain on the client to re-run server validation. If the configuration or vault structure has changed, this may be wise to call.
ShowMessage Shows an informational message to the user.
UpdateCommands Udpates the list of avaliable commands. The updated list is retrieved from the corresponding node method.
UpdateDashboard(IDashboardContent, String, DashboardUpdateMode) Updates the default node's dashboard. Either completely, or a targeted section.
UpdateDashboard(String, String, DashboardUpdateMode) Updates the default node's dashboard. Either completely, or a targeted section.
UpdateDomain Refreshes information about the node. This allows for basic node information like DisplayName, Description and Priority to be updated, and also updates the nodes status and commands if those are supported. The updated values are gathered from the node itself via applicable interface methods.
UpdateStatus Updates the nodes status in MFAdmin. Consider using UpdateDomain(DomainNodeLocation) if other information and/or commands are being updated as well.
