Subject [jira] Commented: (JS2-449) User Specific Preferences
Date Mon, 11 Dec 2006 17:44:26 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-449?page=comments#action_12457424 ] 
Thorsten Berger commented on JS2-449:

I'm a bit wondering why switching back to the old behaviour isn't configurable. At least I
haven't found it and please correct me if I'm wrong.

This seems to prevent one of my important use cases: the admin should be able to configure
portlets on public portal pages.

E.g. imagine that admin wants to put the Google Maps portlet on the (publicly viewable) start
page and sets another location in the prefs than the default one. This results in only admin
seeing the correct location, non-logged-in guests still have San Francisco. The same for RSS
portlets etc.

I tried to use the "mergeSharedPreferences" feature, but could not achieve this behavoiur.
Furthermore there is always a preference node for the guest user created by just viewing the
page and this overrides always the "no-principal" prefs (besides that one can't graphically
edit "no-principal" prefs).
Using the Portlet Application Manager to set default prefs is insufficient too, as they're
saved per portlet definition, not per entity.

Thanks in advance for any advice, Thorsten

>             Fix For: 2.1-dev
> Preferences should be user-specific on all pages.
> If User A comes to page /roles/X/x.psml, and stores a pref P1 on portlet x1, and then
User B comes to page /roles/X/x.psml, and also stores a pref P1 on portlet x1, the prefs for
those two users should be different.
> I am considering making this feature optional, but the problem is that the semantics
are intrinsic in the data model.
