I have two cascades instances running. cascades (dev) and cascades (production). the permissions for each folder are configured in dev instance. I want to copy all those persmissions in production. How this could be done via webservices efficiently so there is no chance of error. Please share some example source code in php or

Looking forward.

    Hi Uthman,

    For me, using my web service library, this will be very easy. The hard part for you is that you have to understand and learn to use various classes like AssetTree, Folder and Page first. And then you need to learn how to work with groups and users, and how to grant various kinds of permissions to them.

    Hi wing,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I was just wondering if there is something that cascades does provides officially to do such task.

    Transferring data between Cascade instances is a very difficult task, provided we can't use import/export. As far as I know, Cascade does not provide anything like that. It took me a year to write my library code just to do this.

    Hi guys,

    Wing is correct in that there isn't anything native in Cascade that will let you copy permissions objects outside of using Web Services.
