  • Publication number: 20190356698
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and system includes a processor(s) obtaining an authorization failure from a target application because an access request was denied based on insufficient permissions of a user. The processor(s) institutes a mock interface with a visual appearance of the target application. The mock interface displays predefined data and the target application displays dynamic data, from the server(s) executing the target application. The processor(s) obtains, via the mock interface, a request to change the permissions of the user to the target application, which includes a selection, by the user, through the mock interface, of one or more individual permissions displayed in the mock interface. The processor(s) automatically generates a customized security policy comprising the selection, where based on applying the customized security policy, repeating the access request results in authorized access to the target application.

  • Publication number: 20190129921
    Abstract: A mechanism is provided for enhancing crossing copying and pasting operations. A user selected area in a source document is captured as an image. A set of MIOUs within the image are identified and, for each MIOU, a set of coordinates is determined. A set of relationships between the MIOUs is generated. Optical character recognition (OCR) is performed on an object within each MIOU. Responsive to the OCR on the object within the MIOU identifying text within the MIOU, the object is converted to text thereby forming a converted MIOU. Responsive to the OCR on the object within the MIOU failing to identifying text within the MIOU, the object is marked as an image thereby forming an unconverted MIOU. One or more properties are determined for each MIOU, which are then assigned to the MIOU. Each converted MIOU and each unconverted MIOU are then rendered in a target document.

  • Publication number: 20180276057
    Abstract: An enhanced copy-and-paste function copies multiple logical and physical software objects from a source computing environment to a distinct target computing environment. A physical object can be any software-data entity, such as a document, a container, a database, or a disk image. A logical object contains a hierarchy of two or more physical or logical objects. Objects are copied to a logical copy clipboard, where they may be assembled into logical objects. Each physical object is then transferred one at a time to a conventional physical clipboard, transmitted to a corresponding physical clipboard in a corresponding target environment, and then forwarded to a logical paste clipboard, where the original logical objects are reconstructed and pasted into the target environment. Each logical object may be pasted into multiple target environments and may contain physical objects copied from multiple source environments. Multiple logical objects may contain the same physical object.
