Subject [jira] Commented: (JS2-27) Allow disable of Groups and Roles
Date Wed, 26 Oct 2005 13:25:56 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-27?page=comments#action_12355969 ] 

Ate Douma commented on JS2-27:

I'm going to implement this feature, together with JS2-21, independent of JS2-151 to be able
to get it into 2.0-FINAL release.

>          Key: JS2-27
>          URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-27
>      Project: Jetspeed 2
>         Type: Improvement
>   Components: Security
>     Versions: 2.0-FINAL
>     Reporter: Ate Douma

>      Fix For: 2.0-FINAL

> In J1 a user can be disabled but not a role or a group.
> I guess disabling users will be supported by J2 to allow migration from J1.
> I would also like to be able to disable Roles and Groups.
> It would allow for really advanced access management in J2 without it
> getting in the way for who doesn't need it (could even be *hidden* through configuration
if needed).
> To have this standard available in J2 would be very nice for most large J2 implementations.
Implementation itself would be quite easy and the gain enormous.
> Adding a boolean disabled attribute to o.a.j.security.BasePrincipal
> would do it (and of course BasePrincipalImpl and the object
> model behind it). The LoginModule, UserManager, GroupManager
> and RoleManager then can decide on this attribute if the Principal may
> be used (in isUserInRole(), isGroupInRole(), etc.)
