Subject [jira] Created: (JS2-870) Replace User/Group/Role (Java) Preferences with simplified attributes Map
Date Tue, 03 Jun 2008 11:40:45 GMT
Replace User/Group/Role (Java) Preferences with simplified attributes Map

                 Key: JS2-870
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-870
             Project: Jetspeed 2
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Admin Portlets, Persistence and DAO, Security
    Affects Versions: 2.2
            Reporter: Ate Douma
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 2.2

The current User/Group/Role Preferences are tied to the Java Preferences API.
JS2-869 will provde a new, simplified and more efficient preferences model doing away with
the Java Preferences.
For the User/Group/Role security principal elements this will require a drastic API change
but also allow for better and improved integration with the backend systems.

The Portlet API USER_INFO attributes need to be mapped (filtered per portlet application)
to the User attributes.

Furthermore, full backend integration needs to be provided so for instance LDAP can be used
for storage/retrieval as well. This will require large enhancements to the LDAP api (which
currently doesn't support mapping custom attributes yet). 

Finally, the admin portlets need to be enhanced to provide retrieval and (optionally, if the
backend supports/allows is) modification of attributes per User/Role/Group.
