CipUX is made up of several parts: on bottom is the LDAP server. On top of that, the LDAP abstraction layer CipUX::?CiBot can be found. Then the CipUX::Task module delivers daily administration task functions to different institutions: (1) The graphical CAT user interface. (2) The CipUX shell command line, and (3) the RPC daemon.

CipUX interfaces:

CipUX/CAT (CipUX Administration Tool)

  • With the graphical user interface, you may perform several tasks without Linux knowledge (today CAT is a Webmin based tool, but other versions may be developed effortlessly).
  • With the Moodle plugins (under development by the French team), even an inexperienced user can do the work of an administrator.

CipUX/Shell tasks

  • There are over 60 [:DebianEdu/CipUX/Tasks:CipUX shell commands:] which may be used by a semi-experienced administrator. They may be used for creating new tasks, writing macros, or defining cron jobs.

CipUX/low level commands:

  • These very powerful commands give access to every single value of the LDAP database for skilled users, without needing expert LDAP knowledge.

CipUX/RPC daemon:

  • Other applications may also use CipUX for administration tasks, even over the network, by using its [:DebianEdu/CipUX/XmlRpc:remote procedure calls].

The scope of the CipUX framework

administer:

  • users
  • groups (courses)
  • machines
  • rooms
  • examinations
  • roles
