        • Don might complete this issue by next week

    • Triple Pattern Fragments

      • VIVO-1614 - Make visibility of TPF server configurable Open

        • Don thinks the feature should be disabled by default

        • Jim thinks it should be open. The TPF do not allow same exposure as SPARQL End point.

        • Huda: what do we want to implement, we need to clarify

        • Ralph: VIVO is meant for sharing data and not hide them.

        • Kitio: we need some consistency between all API. If data are not open by default on a fresh install SPARQL End point then the user would be surprised to have them available on TPF.

        • Don & Huda: We have two issues

          • Default setting

          • Making it more configurable in visibility settings

        • Andrew : How to apply various authorisations on TPF request ?

        • Jim: Filters are applied to data when you request them on the SPARQL End Point, the same should be doable for TPF.

        • Alex: Has anyone got in touch with TPF community. Get some best practices that could help for implementing ACL on TPF?

    • Themes

      • VIVO-1543 - Top level page.ftl includes file that does not exist Open

        • Kitio to work on this ticket

  • Action:

    • Don: to make the differences between Vitro and VIVO properties files.
