Some intermediate servers (proxy/gateway/firewall/router/etc) will answer a request from the browser on behalf of the server. If this happens frequently and you are unable to change the intermediate server to avoid this (supporting 2 minute connections is a good start) you can use

top.noodle.ajax.ignoreMasquerading=true;

use that as a last resort as it can cause further UI interference.

There is a Microsoft Office bug (2019105) that will attempt WebDAV windows authentication from non WebDAV links. To work around this bug the server can specify the "Content-Disposition" header as an "attachment" (requesting the browser save the file instead of opening it). Microsoft Internet Explorer will still ask if you want to open the file but will not attempt WebDAV. When making links with ShowItemData.po use the "download" in place of the "filename" parameter. For example:

/ShowItemData.po?handle=123&download=file.ext

 

 

This code can be added to a re-writer to select no manager by default
How to make "Reports to" default to nothing or a selected user instead of the current user:

if(url.indexOf("UserDetails.po")>-1 && url.indexOf("user=")<0){
  doc.getElementById("users_MANAGER").selectedIndex=0;
}

If someone tries to brute force passwords their IP will be added to the blacklist.

  • The IP will be un-listed after 12 hours.
  • The default threshold for authentication failure rate is 20 per minute.
  • The default (BlackList.PerMinuteThreshold = 20) can be changed in the intranet.conf.
  • Hosted clients can disable blacklisting in the settings.
  • One NATed IPv4 user can get many users blacklisted due to shared IP. IPv6 or internal monitoring are the only way to prevent that without disabling blacklisting.

How to prevent emails (memo, reminder, auto-notification, notification, subscription ) from Noodle from being marked as spam:

If you are hosted by Vialect and are using mail.vialect.net in the SMTP settings half of it is already taken care of;

  • If using SPF add our mail server.
    • Lin
      dig sub.domain.tld TXT | grep spf
    • Win
      nslookup -type=TXT sub.domain.tld | findstr spf
  • If using Google mail client add a filter (to add a tag) for anything with your Noodle domain name in it.

If hosting Noodle on your own server or using your own SMTP server, additionally;

  • Whitelist the Noodle server (Postfix, Spamassassin, Exchange)
  • Use authentication in the Noodle setting
    • [user:pass@]domain.tld[:port][,protocol]

Another option is to use something like noreply@vialect.com in the "Send system emails from" system setting.

Once the structure has been created, we can now look at creating groups that will allow us to control permissions and access rights. Group names should be explanatory of the role they represent.

To create groups, click on Groups inside System Tools. Existing Groups will be displayed at the top of the page.  Click on a group to display it's members in the lower part of the screen. Members can also be added to Groups here at any time.

Click on the 'Create Group' button, enter a name in the text box marked Group Name, and click 'Save' to confirm.
