Subject [jira] Commented: (JS2-21) Missing Security Feature: Check roles assigned to any group to user belongs
Date Thu, 04 May 2006 19:35:18 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-21?page=comments#action_12377877 ] 

Randy Watler commented on JS2-21:

Ralph... do you need PSML constraints/permissions or isUserInRole() to function correctly?

I know that having it all function correctly would be ideal, but I might be able to add support
in the PageManager/PSML more directly than fixing isUserInRole().

>          URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-21
>      Project: Jetspeed 2
>         Type: New Feature

>   Components: Security
>     Versions: 2.0-FINAL
>     Reporter: David Le Strat
>     Assignee: Ate Douma
>      Fix For: 2.1

> Reported by Ate Douma:
> o.a.j.security.impl.RoleManagerImpl.isUserInRole() implementation is
> missing a required feature.
> A User can be part of a Group which can have Roles just like the User itself.
> The isUserInRole() method currently only checks if the specified role is assigned to
the user, not if it is assigned to one of the groups the user belongs to.
> The Role definition in Servlet 2.3 SRV.12.4 (which according to portlet PLT.20.2 also
applies for portlets) specifies that a user is in a specific role either when assigned directly
to the user or
> when assigned to a group the user belongs to.
> Thus according to this definition the RoleManagerImpl.isUserInRole() 
> should also check the roles assigned to any group to user belongs to.
