      Description

      This ticket was discussed in the DSpace 7 meeting on Jan 25, 2018.

      • Access to config variables should be granted by white listing specific values.  
      • It would be acceptable to wildcard the white list values
      • Access to config variables should be authorized by the authorization service.  Some values could be granted to authenticated users.  Some values would be granted only to admin users.
      • Spring security could be used to filter the values that should be provided.
      • Eventually, such a service could also be used to allow the update of config settings.
      • Plugin developers should have the ability to white list plugin config values.  The solution described above should support such a feature.
