Subject [jira] Created: (AMQ-908) Authorization plugin should have configurable principal classes
Date Fri, 01 Sep 2006 14:57:23 GMT
Authorization plugin should have configurable principal classes

                 Key: AMQ-908
             Project: ActiveMQ
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Broker
    Affects Versions: 4.0.1
            Reporter: Aaron Mulder
             Fix For: 4.0.3, 4.1

Currently, if you configure the authorization plugin, it assumes that all principals listed
should be of type {{org.apache.activemq.jaas.GroupPrincipal}}.  This is OK if you're using
ActiveMQ LoginModules, but since there's a fairly small supply of those, it would be great
if you could use arbitrary login modules and tell the authorization plugin which principal
classes to use.  For example, {{groupClass="}} or
something like that.  A good first step would be to let you change the group class.  A good
second step would be to let you specify user and group classes and then somehow indicate which
names are which (e.g. {{admin="administrators,user:aaron,user:bob"}} or whatever).  Someday
maybe it will be nice to support any arbitrary combination of principal classes but that seems
far away.

When instantiating the principal classes, I imagine we should use a constructor with a single
String argument if available, or else a default constructor plus a "setName" method, or else
I guess bail.
