edc-device
----------

``edc-device`` provides device roles unique device IDs for hosts and clients where the hostname may not be reliable. Hosts can be group as servers, clients, node_servers and some of their functionality limited according to this role.

A unique device ID is used to seed unique subject and sample identifiers. Uniqueness is evaluated during deployment.

Device information is set in and read from ``edc_device.apps.AppConfig``.

You should subclass into your projects ``apps.py`` like this, for example:

.. code-block:: python

from edc_device.apps import AppConfig as EdcDeviceAppConfigParent

class EdcDeviceAppConfig(EdcDeviceAppConfigParent):
device_id = '32'
device_role = CLIENT
device_permissions = DevicePermissions(
plot_add, plot_change, ...)

and then in your settings:

.. code-block:: python

INSTALLED_APPS = [
...
my_app.apps.EdcDeviceAppConfig,
myapp.apps.AppConfig',
]

Include in your ``urls.py``:

.. code-block:: python

urlpatterns = [
...
path('edc_device/', include('edc_device.urls')),
...
]

To get to the Edc Device home page, reverse the url like this:

.. code-block:: python

reverse('edc_device:home_url')


Usage
=====


A ``client`` might look like this:

.. code-block:: python

class EdcDeviceAppConfig(EdcDeviceAppConfigParent):
device_id = '18'
node_server_id_list = [97, 98, 99]
middleman_id_list = [95, 96]

>>> from django.apps import apps as django_apps
>>> app_config = django_apps.get_app_config('edc_device')
>>> app_config.device_id
'18'
>>> app_config.is_client
True
>>> app_config.device_role
'Client'

A node server server might look like this:

.. code-block:: python

class EdcDeviceAppConfig(EdcDeviceAppConfigParent):
device_id = '98'
node_server_id_list = [97, 98, 99]
middleman_id_list = [95, 96]

>>> from django.apps import apps as django_apps
>>> app_config = django_apps.get_app_config('edc_device')
>>> app_config.device_id
'98'
>>> app_config.is_node_server
True
>>> app_config.device_role
'NodeServer'

A middleman server might look like this:

.. code-block:: python

class EdcDeviceAppConfig(EdcDeviceAppConfigParent):
device_id = '95'
node_server_id_list = [97, 98, 99]
middleman_id_list = [95, 96]

>>> from django.apps import apps as django_apps
>>> app_config = django_apps.get_app_config('edc_device')
>>> app_config.device_id
'95'
>>> app_config.is_middleman
True
>>> app_config.device_role
'Middleman'

The central server might look like this:

.. code-block:: python

class EdcDeviceAppConfig(EdcDeviceAppConfigParent):
device_id = '99'
node_server_id_list = [97, 98, 99]
middleman_id_list = [95, 96]

>>> from django.apps import apps as django_apps
>>> app_config = django_apps.get_app_config('edc_device')
>>> app_config.device_id
'99'
>>> app_config.is_middleman
True
>>> app_config.device_role
'CentralServer'

Device Permissions by Model
===========================

You can use the device role, or the device ID, to limit ADD/CHANGE permissions on a model.

``edc-device`` AppConfig maintains a collection of ``DeviceAddPermission`` and ``DeviceChangePermission`` instances that are inspected in the ``save`` method of a model using the ``DeviceModelMixin``.

To declare a ``DeviceAddPermission`` object:

.. code-block:: python

test_model_add = DeviceAddPermission(
model='my_app.mymodel, device_roles=[NODE_SERVER, CENTRAL_SERVER])

To declare a ``DeviceChangePermission`` object:

.. code-block:: python

test_model_change = DeviceChangePermission(
model='my_app.mymodel, device_roles=[CLIENT])

This means that if ``app_config.device_role`` is anything other than ``NODE_SERVER`` or ``CENTRAL_SERVER``, the save method will raise a ``DevicePermissionsAddError``.

To register the instances with ``edc_device.apps.AppConfig.device_permissions``:

.. code-block:: python

device_permissions = DevicePermissions(test_model_add, test_model_change)

This means that if ``app_config.device_role`` is anything other than ``CLIENT``, the save method will raise a ``DevicePermissionsChangeError``.

On boot up you should see:

.. code-block:: python

Loading Edc Device ...
* device id is '10'.
* device role is 'Client'.
* device permissions exist for:
- edc_device.testmodel ADD NodeServer,CentralServer
- edc_device.testmodel CHANGE Client
Done loading Edc Device.

Models declared with the ``EdcDeviceModelMixin`` check the device permissions collection on save. Note the model mixin is already declared with ``BaseUuidModel``.

.. code-block:: python

from edc_base.model_mixins import BaseUuidModel

class TestModel(BaseUuidModel):
pass


Declaring device permissions directly on model ``Meta`` class:
============================================================

You can declare device permissions on ``Meta.device_permissions`` in the same way as above.

.. code-block:: python

[...]
class Meta(DeviceModelMixin.Meta):
device_permissions = DevicePermissions(...)

Both ``Meta`` and ``AppConfig`` device permissions will be called, where the ``Meta`` class object will be called first.

Disable device permissions by model instance:
=============================================

You can disable device permissions _per model instance_ by setting ``check_device_permissions`` to ``False``


Customizing Device Permissions
==============================

The ADD and CHANGE device permission objects by default inspect the model's ``id``. If ``obj.id`` is ``None``, it as an ADD model operation; If ``obj.id`` is not ``None``, it is a CHANGE model operation.

You can change this by overriding the ``model_operation`` method. The ``model_operation`` must return ``None`` or some value, such as ``self.label``.

For example:

.. code-block:: python

# default for DeviceAddPermission
label = 'ADD'

def model_operation(self, model_obj=None, **kwargs):
if not model_obj.id:
return self.label
return None

# overridden
def model_operation(self, model_obj=None, **kwargs):
"""Return ADD if both id and plot identifier are None.
"""
if not model_obj.id and not obj.plot_identifier:
return self.label
return None
