We have administrators from separate business units who need to independently configure different parts of SSH Tectia software. In the older 4.x version we used Tectia Server subconfiguration files for this purpose. How can I split the XML configuration files?

You can divide the Server's configuration to several files using XML SYSTEM entity references.
SYSTEM entity declarations are used to define entities referring to separate files. They look like this:
Entity declarations are placed within the DOCTYPE element. An XML entity is referred to like this:
The effect of this is that the contents of some-file.xml are expanded in place of the entity reference.
Example: Server rule block for a user group in separate file
This is only a partial configuration file for clarity. Parts where you presumably have something are marked with dots (...).
Then, the file subconfigs/group-foo-rules.xml will be used for defining allowed services for this group:
The read/write permissions of this extra file can be set to anything. For example:
Members of the fooadm group can now edit this part of the server configuration.
