User Groups (LDAP Groups)
A user group in TWCloud is considered as a single user. Roles are granted to the group instead of individual users in the group. Role assignments are given once, for all users in a group. When a user leaves the user group, the permissions for that user are automatically revoked. User groups in TWCloud are categorized into native and external groups. A user creates a native user group, while an external user group is imported from an LDAP server. Unlike the native group, the external user group content and role assignments are not modifiable.

Once a user group has been imported from an LDAP server, its users automatically become external users and you can synchronize the user group to update information.

Introducing new monitoring stack, this monitoring stack replaces OpsCenter that used to be included within the discontinued Community Edition of Datastax Cassandra. Our in-house developed monitoring stack is aimed at directly monitoring metrics exposed both from TWCloud and Cassandra.
TWCloud adds OSLC support and now exposes model element data following OSLC Architecture Managemenet vocabulary. Along with core OSLC services provided in TWCloud, this enables smooth integration with other OSLC-compatible tools by linking resources in Linked Data fashion.
In order to ensure secure access to server resources in the context of OSLC, support for OAuth 1.0 authentication protocol was added.
