  • Publication number: 20210349654
    Abstract: Content is captured and archived at an archive center (AC) and, depending upon records management (RM) policy, is managed by the AC or under RM control by a content server (CS). Both the AC and CS may be part of an enterprise content management system. The AC provides a user-friendly interface through which retention zones may be defined, and functionality for applying RM policy. The functionality can be triggered via a specific content property or through a retention zone under RM control. The RM control can be turned on or off from within the AC using the user-friendly interface. Archived content is not moved or duplicated. Rather, metadata and a link to the storage location are sent to the CS which, in turn, creates a content server document that is linked to the archived content. Only a portion of archived content is exposed to the CS through the AC.

  • Publication number: 20210258299
    Abstract: A cloud computing environment receives a request from a client. The request relates to access of an application executing in the cloud computing environment and it encapsulates a certificate. This certificate is then translated into an authorization graph descriptor which, in turn, is used to traverse a certificate authorization graph to identify a match within a certificate repository. In response to the identification of the match, an access token is requested including the authorization graph descriptor. The access token is then encapsulated in the request which is then forwarded to an authentication service which provides access to the application if there is a match of the authorization graph descriptor against pre-defined authorization requirements. Related apparatus, systems, techniques and articles are also described.

  • Patent number: 10040247
    Abstract: A method for the sterile connection of pipes, consisting of: providing a first and a second pipe; a separating area of the first and second pipes is heated; both pipes are mechanically separated by exerting traction and/or shear force onto the pipes so that both pipes are respectively separated in the heated separating area; after the pipes are separated, a mechanical contact between the end of the first pipe section of the first pipe formed by the separation of the first pipe is established with the end of the first pipe section of the second pipe, formed by the separation of the second pipe, and mechanical contact is established such that the ends of the pipe sections still have, following heating when they come into mechanical contact with each other, a temperature such that they form a material fit connection without additional heating after separation.

    Abstract: Content is captured and archived at an archive center (AC) and, depending upon records management (RM) policy, is managed by the AC or under RM control by a content server (CS). Both the AC and CS may be part of an enterprise content management system. The AC provides a user-friendly interface through which retention zones may be defined, and functionality for applying RM policy. The functionality can be triggered via a specific content property or through a retention zone under RM control. The RM control can be turned on or off from within the AC using the user-friendly interface. Archived content is not moved or duplicated. Rather, metadata and a link to the storage location are sent to the CS which, in turn, creates a content server document that is linked to the archived content.

  • Patent number: 9214873
    Abstract: A method for operating an electrical power rectifier. The power rectifier comprises at least two branches that are connected in parallel to each other, each of the branches comprising at least two power semiconductor elements that are connected in series. The collector-emitter voltage Vce(t) and/or the collector current Ic(t) of one of the power semiconductor elements is detected by means of the method. Furthermore, it is determined whether at least one of the following conditions is met: dVce(t)/dt<(dVce/dt)crit, and/or dIc(t)/dt<(dIc/dt)crit, and or Ic(t_ent)<Iccrit. If at least one of the aforementioned conditions has been met, the gate-emitter voltage of at least one of the power semiconductor elements is increased.
